What was the last deal that you got?


Are you a coupon user?


Do you only buy what is on sale and if you have a coupon for it?


Any tips that you wouldl like to share?

What was the last deal that you got? Wal-Mart had toothpaste and toothbrushes on sale for 94 cents a piece. Stocked up on those.

Are you a coupon user? I try to be, but I've been lax lately on searching online and printing them out.


Do you only buy what is on sale and if you have a coupon for it? If it's name brand, otherwise I just get the cheaper generic version.


Any tips that you wouldl like to share? When I make my grocery list, I write it in the order of starting at the back of the store moving to the front. This prevents me from going down aisles I don't need to and constantly wandering back and forth thru the store, and less likely to pick up impulse items.

What was the last deal that you got? I bought about $300 worth of clothes for just a little over $100 at Kohl's. If you have a credit card they will send you a 30% off your entire purchase coupon occasionally. When you combine that with the sales the store is already having you can walk out with your arms loaded.


Are you a coupon user? I don't use them too much these days. It just doesn't seem like they are really worth the time and energy. I would just rather shop sales.


Do you only buy what is on sale and if you have a coupon for it? No. If we need it I buy it. If we can wait I will wait for it to go on sale though.


Any tips that you wouldl like to share? If you can avoid the freezer section and the prepackaged food sections in your grocery store you can almost cut your bill in half. It requires a bit more work in the kitchen, but it saves a TON of money.
