I think we may have discussed this before, but who uses coupons when they shop? I never really did, but last week I only bought things that had coupons (and that were things I would normally buy, not random stuff just bc I had a coupon) and I saved $46! I'm going to go buy a couple of papers today and see if I can save more tomorrow. It's kind of fun! I don't want to end up with a stockpile or anything, but saving a little money is nice!

I've always used coupons. My mom did when I was growing up so I've just carried on with it. I don't go crazy or anything. I only cut coupons for things I use. I do have a small health and beauty stockpile, but we're kind of short on space so I can't keep too much.

I use coupons if they are big enough (like $1 or more). I am always racing to get done shopping so no time for 35 cent ones . I do use Target Cartwheel as I can search while holding a sleepy baby and then just scan my phone.

I found that my grocery store will double them if they are 50 cents or less. I've got my list and coupons all ready to go for tomorrow and I'm going to two stores, so we will see how I do! Lol.

We are avid couponers in this household. We have a very tight budget so anyway we can stretch it... the better. Stores aroundhere do not double coupons. So generally I match coupons with sale prices and then price match through Walmart. It probably saves me 20 bucks or so a week. But hey its an extra 80-100 a month we can put toward other things. Plus I get kind of a crazy thrill from saving money

I know, it's fun and exciting to save!! I am only buying things today that are either on sale or I have a coupon for. And I have some things that are on sale and I have a coupon. So hopefully I figured it all out correctly and can use all my coupons and will save a lot! We will see!

We usually just buy generic brands, and sometimes our store offers coupons for that, but not often.

I saved $85! And I got sooooo much food. Probably won't have to shop next week at all. And won't have to get much the week after either. Lol. And it's all stuff that I like! Ha.

I was better at it when it was just the boys and they were old enough to leave home with DH while I shopped. I did all the lists then. I would often save 20% on my order. Need to get better at it when Elli is a little bigger. Not sure I will ever be good enough to hit $85.

I spent much more than $85. But I have enough food for at least two weeks and a lot of it is things that will keep longer if I don't eat them (like soup, etc). But if I had bought all the same things or even some of the things without the coupons, I would have spent more!
