Do you use coupons when you shop? Where do you usually get your coupons from?

I don't get the newspaper and the clipper magazine that comes in my junk mail never has anything I buy often in it. I do look for the "save now" coupons on items I buy, and if I know a certain product, like the butter I buy, often has a coupon for the next tub of butter I will stick to buying that brand and using the coupons.

It seems I ALWAYS find the save now coupon when I get home and have already purchased the item. GRRRRR

I do, or should I say I did. I was participating in a yahoo group which was all about being frugal and saving money. There were great tips and they would do coupon trains where they would mail an envelope of coupons to the first person who would take out what they wanted and replace them with usually more and then send it to the second person and this would continue till it was returned back to the conductor. It is a great way to save money but I just got lazy. Who knows I may get back to it. I really should I guess.

I sure do use coupons as frequently as possible. I usually cut them out of the newspapers I get or from the booklets from each of the stores that they send through the mail. Occasionally I get coupons from the Internet too. I love getting good deals whenever possible so clipping coupons is normal for me.

I do sometimes. I used to all the time, when my kids were young, but now, I don't very often. Only if it's something I'm planning to buy, or something I buy quite often anyway. I get them out of the newspaper.

I do cut coupons but usually save them to use when the item is on sale so I am getting it for even cheaper. I also get coupons at coupons.ca and from cooking magazines. Also, the grocery store sometimes has coupons on the shelf for a particular product. Like today there was a coupon holder with coupons for fruit chews AND the fruit chews were on sale. So I grabbed two boxes and four coupons (2 to save for later). Unfortunately, a lot of times I find by the time I get to using the coupon it has expired.

I didn't pay attention to any coupons before because I figured that I never remember to use them anyway. But these days, since I am living on a tight budget, I would cut down the coupons when I see them and I would look at them a couple times and remind myself I need to use that in the store next time when I go there. I usually get my coupons from magazines and newspaper. The most useful one I would frequently use would be the coupons as a gift from my credit card point system. It's a HKD50 coupon and I could use it in the supermarket buying whatever items I want or need.

I always try to use coupons whenever I can. I get mine usually out of the flyers in the Sunday paper, or sometimes when I buy something, it will come with a coupon, so I save those for the next time. It can really add up when you use them all the time!
