What we love most about coupons is it can really help to save a lot of money! I love the Sunday paper as it has a lot of retails stores coupons, manufacturer's coupons and lots more. I used to categorized them by expiry date in a few of mini cd covers that I tied up to make it coupons pocket. If you ask me, how much can we safe by using coupons? well at first I thought I could save about 10-20% of your purchase, but one of my friend make an incredible amount of saving with all her coupon in single purchase. The exact figure how much she had saved? Well, the original total amount due was about $250, with all the coupons, she only need to pay $18.00. It's a whole lot of saving isn't it? I was a bit shy at first to the idea of using coupon at the check out counter, but come to think of it, why shy? That's is a lot of money you can save.

Most times we don't use coupons, because they are only available for snack foods and disposable items. However, I have found some really great coupon deals over the years. Once I purchased a jar of anti-aging face cream for $5.00 by combining a manufacturer coupon and store coupon. I saved $15.00! The best coupon savings can be found by using a coupon on a sale item. Or, better yet, find a store that offers buy one get one free items and then use your coupon.

Wow, Great saving! Ya, I do agree with you. Combine both manufacturer coupons and store coupons can really save a lot! :) I love those store coupons that says " 20% off any item in store", cos you are not limited to get any item only,but any thing you like.

Beautyqueen26 I have to say that there are way more coupons out there that are for many more things then just snack food or disposable items. I am a coupon user and I can tell you first hand there are coupons for meat, chicken, cheese, product etc. Trust me I can shop for a family of four for about $100 a month and they do not starve thats for sure. I also do not buy a ton of junk food for them. If you look hard enough you will find coupons for everything you use.

When I have time I like to use coupons, but I have never had the savings that your friend did. It seems that I do not have as much time to look for the coupons before going to the store, or the time to orgnaize them like you do. I've never been shy about using the coupons, I'm all about saving money.

I think I agree with you completely. Coupons are the saviors of the day. They save time, energy and if you're painstaking and lucky enough, you also get to save a lot of money. When I first chanced upon the idea of shopping with coupons I was absolutely broke. I badly needed discounts on a lot of things and that's the hope those first coupons gave me. For a long time I had them cut from the Sunday paper but recently I shifted to online coupons. And mind you, they're equally good if not better. It is great to see so many people coming up with the bright idea of creating sites just to feature coupons. Nowadays I buy clothes, jewelry, electronics and even kitchenware online. And believe it or not I also found offers on personalized printing and even photographic equipment!! www.quickcoupons.org I recently found this site so thought of sharing with you guys. It not only gives great discounts but also has rebates for its loyal users. Now that's what I call a deal worth considering!!
