Buying stuff you wouldn't normally buy because you have a good coupon?

Okay so I was reading this article on Yahoo about how being cheap can cost you more and one of the things they mentioned was buying things with coupons that you wouldn't normally buy. I feel like this is one of the big myths about couponing. I've had people say this to me before. I DO sometimes buy things I wouldn't normally buy because it's on sale and I have a coupon but to me it's not such a bad thing. I usually will splurge now and then on things I don't need anyway and this gives me an opportunity to buy things I might like to splurge on without feeling too guilty.
This week I bought refrigerated cookies because they were on sale and I had a coupon. Did I need the cookies? No. Would I have bought them if I didn't have the coupons? No. Did my kids and dh like the cookies? YEP! So to me it was a good deal even if it wasn't something I would have bought otherwise.
