do you use coupons?
« on: January 06, 2010, 06:33:37 pm »
I am trying to become more aware of my spending, especially with the use of coupons?
If you are an avid coupon user, do you have any tips?

i'd actually like some tips on using coupons too.
it seems that every grocery coupon i find is never
something i'd buy anyway. its difficult finding them
for stuff we actually eat!

does anyone have that problem too?

I never use them, what a hassle keeping up w/them all AND having to find the correct items in the store!

Sure Do. Wendy's around here have a survey you can take online with your receipt to get a free hamburger.  Rinse, repeat and you're getting free burgers every few days.

I didn't think of that...I do a similar thing at Sonic Drive-In, where the receipt says "Free Route 44 on your next visit" and you don't have to purchase anything or even pay the taxes on it...and when they bring the free drink, you get ANOTHER receipt that says the same thing!! I sometimes get a free drink every day for a week or two straight before one of them doesn't bring me the receipt lol.

Yes I do.  I go to coupons.com and print out coupons.  I use coupons for shampoo and makeup mostly.  I go to CVS they have coupons also and they have that extra bucks thing also.  Sometimes I use all three coupons and you can really save a lot.  I also shop at Walmart, their prices are pretty good. ;)

Yes, I use them...but I try not to fall into the habit of using them on items I don't necessarily need.
