When in a store and they have a display with coupons attached...how many coupons do you really take? What if it is something that you buy often?

If it's something that I buy often or that I think I can trade on HCW, I'll take several. Sometimes I've taken them all.

If I won't use them or they aren't popular, I'll just take a few to use as extras in trades.

If I won't use them, or if no one I know will use them.. none.

If I'll use them, I'll take a few.

If I use the item a lot, I'll take a lot

Lol I gave up on being sneaky about it. Our local grocery store doesn't seem to care one way or the other. If its walmart though.. then I'm a bit more sneaky.

If it's something I use a LOT, I'll take 4-5. Otherwise, I try to just take 1 and have good coupon karma.

It kind of depends on how many are left too. If its close to the end, I'll leave some for others too. I'm not going to clean 'em out.

I will clear them out if it is something that I use all the time. If it is something I won't use I won't even take one.

only a couple, unless the clerk or whatever is like take more and it is something I buy alot of (but typically that is not the issue!) If I don't buy it, I don't collect it (hate clutter and don't stock pile, just have a nice stocked pantry

Only one or two.
I think it's important to pass the blessings of savings on to others too.

I took some tonight at the grocery store I was really happy with them because I will use them. I left plenty behind, though.

What annoys me is when someone takes the whole pad and sells them on ebay! GRR
