Ever since I became a mom...

and realized how expensive things really are, I have been a coupon fanatic. Our rules are different in Canada, so I can't be an extreme couponer, but I do use them for as many products as I can. It really helps when your on a tight budget. Last time I went shopping for baby supplies, I saved about $20 from a $150 dollar purchase using coupons.

I've started using coupons too and try to be aware of the weekly store ads and sales. There's no way I could be an extreme couponer, but once I started seeing how I could save, I do like to coupon. the freebies are fun to get too :)

same here in ireland you don't good coupons at all and you have to use them in the store you got the coupon for, its not like the states, they can use the coupons mostly in any store. i miss being able to coupon like that, i wasn't that great at it thow lol.

I dont coupon ever. I will never get into it. I would rather pay full price then deal with that crap.

I don't coupon mostly cause I'm too lazy to cut them out of papers and don't have a working printer.

 ever since I became one I as well look very carefully at where our money is going (even more now that I need a new van so our car payment will go up by an extra $200 a month)

 I rarely use coupons but I should use them more. I'm always looking for sales.

Since i quit my job i get our sunday paper which has coupons but i never get my money back for all those papers i buy. We saved a whole $3 last week. There are so many that we cant use because its a bunch of junk that we dont need. I havent found a coupon site yet that doesnt throw in a virus. Im stayin away from all that.Those coupon shows on TLC piss me off. They need to quit hoarding their houses and give to the needy. I do like the diaper coupons though.
