Do you use coupon at the stores?
« on: April 19, 2012, 05:20:15 am »
I did not care about it at all.Then I've decided to give it a try.I've to tell you that I really liked the idea.Specially when you realize that things you used to pay $$ before,you'll get it for free most of the time.

Haven't gotten anything for free yet, but have saved a lot.  Definitely using coupons.

I am a coupon blogger.  In fact I used coupons this morning to get a Free Pepsi Next, two Dawn dishwashing liquid for $.50 each and Crest Toothpaste for $.50.  I am a huge fan and don't believe that you have to devote your life to clipping coupons to save.  I fi inserts by date and then use a database on my site to locate the ones I need.  Then I clip only those that I actually use.

In times when it is hard to find a job or get a raise many people can't do a lot to raise their income, except of course by using sites like FC, but you can certainly control what you spend by couponing.

I love using coupons.  It's nice to be able to save some money on something I'm getting anyway.  Wish there was coupons for healthier items more often, though.

We use coupons sometimes when we get one for something we actually buy.

Mostly for non food items though, since we only buy produce and organic meat (hardly ever coupons for those).

be sure to look around at what some other sites have to ofer for activating, printing and using the coupons from their site. That way you'll get paid to save money!

I like using coupons too. Always up for the challenge of getting something for free/cheap.

Just google the items you are looking for.  I know several bloggers who are on gluten free diets or eat mostly organics, so google coupons combined with those terms.  While the coupons for these items may not be as plentiful, these blog will locate them and tell you whenever they are available.  Also, you can get some great deals on meat by looking for the peelies that many stores put on meat that will expire soon. If you are not going to cook and eat it that day you can either freeze it or cook it and freeze whatever you have made, like spaghetti or stew beef. 

Also there are often coupons that will give you free or discounted produce when you buy an item.  Like free eggs or milk when you buy cereal.  Also, Facebook is a great source for rare coupons and even free stuff.  Some of the free things I have gotten in the last few weeks are free full size pizzas from Dominos and Papa John's.  A free cat toy, free lip gloss and nail polish, free organic juices, canned tomoatoes and tons of high value coupons.  A great way to find these is to do periodic searches on Twitter with the hashtag facebook coupon.  There is just a ton of info out there on great ways to save.

I do use coupons.  The local laundromat I frequent nearly every Sunday saves them for the papers.  Between the sales circular and Saving Star Coupons I probably save $50 or so per month.  Granted I do alot of shopping online and at Aldi - the coupons are big big savings that add up quickly.  It's time consuming but we get to try a few things we wouldn't have if we didn't have the coupons.

yes i use coupons at the store. they help stretch my money. I get lots of  free products or coupons for free products from giveaways and contests on Facebook and Instant win games from the companies. They help out a lot. I matchup coupons with what i find in the sales ads.

I have a friend that coupon shops on a regular and she is always telling me about the things she ended up not pay for or the store ended up owing her for. She will go to ever store in town just to get coupons. But I will say this the process that you have to go through just to do, I sometimes wonder if it is worth the time let alone the gas. But the bottom line is it is about saving.
Now I will say there should a line to draw when you do coupon. The same friend who tells me about her saving also has piles of stuff in her house that she refuses to let go of. My opinion is if you do it just be mindful because if you really don't need it but is getting it because it was on a coupon then that is waste, half the stuff she has is expired. I will also say personal items that you get on sales hand them out during Christmas, they will make good care boxes.
I can recall a time when I seen that she had coupon for some of those plug-in air fresheners, I had asked if I could get a few. She told me no, that she was giving them to her grandmother. Two months later that same box of air fresheners was still in her house on the floor...lol
