I love collecting coupouns, for everything. They have good deals, sometimes I get them out of the Newspaper, you know you can also get them off the internet. Free coupons for a lot of things. I hope you have a printer so you can print them right out from computer. My printer needs ink, and ink is exspensive. so I haven't been getting any coupons off the internet, Ho about you do you collect coupons?

I used to do the coupon thing. I still do use some coupons but not as much. I have been lazy about them. I try not to use my printer that much because the ink cost so much. If you go to 123inkjets you can get ink and save lots of money.

Hi Vicky you are right that Ink is very expensive, I think I am going to do like Joy said. and buy some of the ink refillers.

I hope you have the kind that you can refill, mine you can't refill so I have to buy replacement. I can get them real cheap at 123 inkjets, I get them for about $5 a cartridge, thats a good price. They cost lots more at the office supply store.

I don't really clip coupons because I find that the store brand products are usually cheaper than the ones I have a coupon for even when you account for the coupon. Another reason is that I rarely find coupons for the things that I purchase because I mostly purchase whole foods such as meat, fruit, and vegetables rather than packaged items. I also shop at the club stores which don't take coupons.

Yeah, actually the store that I go to has a flyer online, they don't really put one out in the paper. So, I look at that. I don't really find any coupons in the paper that I would use because I don't use brand named items.

I collect and use coupons too whenever I can. I like waiting for the item to go on sale, then use the coupons for it so I get even bigger savings along the way. (And if it's got a rebate along with it...then that's a big bonus too hahaha) I've never had much luck with printing those coupons off the internet. Maybe it's just out where I live, but I've had a lot of stores refuse to take them just because they were printed at home. The ones that wouldn't accept them said they had problems with fraudulent ones, so I quit getting them from the internet. For your printer ink, I don't know what type of printer you have, but I get those printer ink refill kits for my Canon printer. I refill them and every third time I buy new ones so that it doesn't mess up the printer heads. I've had great luck with those refill kits and have been using them about 3 or 4 years now. Sure has saved me a bundle of money in the long run!

I haen't use the coupons on the internet yet, but I was going to try to use them, I didn't know stores wouldn't except them. As for the printer, I have a Cannon Printer too. My girl-friend told me yrs, ago I should buy refill inks, but My omputer Guy said they were to messy. Maybe I will get a refill Kit, walgreens has them on sale all the time. You will save money with them, beause they don't cost as much.

my friend long time ago was in this club and in the club where people list coupons they need like diapers, dog food ect and like if i had a dog people would send me in the mail coupons for dog food i would look on there list and send them one i had they need on there list. like one friend needed eyes drops for her contacts my friend sent her one for 2.00 off and in return she got like 6.00 off on dog food ones back , stamps cost yes but this was big. she would go to the store and her bill was like 80.00 and she would have like 40.00 off i was like wow. i lost contact with her but i bet we can find that site or start one and do this if people would like.

definitely it is a wise way to collect coupons. I usually focuse my interests on the clothes or food which is on sale. Coupons could let me save money as much as possible. But first, I think I should use coupons as soon as possible, where the coupods count. Normally, there are many and several kinds of couponds of KFC and Mcdonald's on the web for youngsters to download. I will be exciting when I could spend less money on what I really want to eat.lol

Most of the stores where I live will not except coupons printed off the internet. They are to easy to make fake ones. My aunt gives me the coupons out of her Sunday paper and I do use them though.

I do a little bit of collecting for personal items like body wash and things that can be very expensive. I need to buy new ink for my printer also. For some reason, the ink cartridge I got the last time is only printing pink ink, LOL.

I do not want to buy any more ink until the pink runs out. Although, I will admit that it is kind of getting on my nerves.

How are you doing? Ok, I guess you don't like to save money? It helps. I like any kind of deals on food or clothes. or asnything that is on sale. Welcome to Mylot.

Yes me and my wife are on a tight budget and we clip them all the time! The most we have save on our food shopping was about 30 dollars. Coupons to add up, we save at least 2-5 buck each week. Sometime the clerks give you a strange look when you give them coupons, but I do not care, savings is savings in my book!

Not for food, but one of the pharmacies here always has 1cent special offers on soap and washing powder etc, so we spend the $30 buying nappies and get hand soap for 1cent. Good brands too.

I do collect coupons too.. When I was in the Philippines, I have a lot of food coupons from different fastfood chains and restaurants. I always carried those coupons with me because me and my boyfriend tend to eat without planning where. We just drove around the city and then chose the restaurant that suited our taste and budget for that day. At present, I am more interested in collecting coupons of clothes, electronics and grocery. Coupons are big help to save.
