Are you a coupon shopper? How much do you typically save in a week?

We would love to be and should be but, for some reason, in the hectic mess of getting our daughter out the door, we always forget to bring them.

My friend and I used to have contests to see who could save the most with coupons. She almost always won. She could walk out of a grocery store with a cart full and only end up paying out of pocket about $20.00 just by using coupons at a store that doubled them. She taught me alot!

I love using coupons. I especially love seeing the look on the cashier's face at the end when the total amount starts decreasing and they say, "WOW"!!! Heheehehe....it's great!

I forgot to mention restaurant coupons until I saw your response. I was mainly talking about for the grocery store. However, I do try to purchase an Entertainment book every year that takes care of restaurants, movies, amusement and etc. Thanks for your response.

I cut out coupons all the time, but don't always use them. A lot of the time I forget to bring them with me. When I do use them I can save anywhere from $15 to about $30. It just depends.

I don't use them. I save more using the generic/store brand of the item than if I used the coupon. But, this is the cool part, I have a strict budget for each week. Anything under that budget goes right into my savings account. So, the savings are really savings.

That's a cool idea. I think I'll add that to using my coupons. I use the generic too, but sometimes with the sale and the coupon I can get the brand for free.

You really could. I have receipts where I have spent $0.88 and saved $11. I also have ones where I have spent $40 and saved $60. It's really cool.

I am not a coupon shopper anymore, but when I had 3 kids living at home I was a bit of a fanatic about my coupons. It took a lot of work and several hours to shop, but I could usually get about $250.00 in groceries for $20.00 or less. My kids used to dread Sundays. That was the day the new coupons came out in the paper and I would have them clipping them out while I organized them and matched up the coupons to the stores that had the items on sale.

It's cool when you know which coupons to use at which stores, especially when you end up getting things for FREE...I LOVE it.

Yes I use coupons anytime I can, don't really pay attention to how much we save weekly, but we do save lots of money that way.

Twilight - This is a pic of the mountains after the sun has set.. the moon has risen but its not fully dark as yet.
I've clipped coupons in the past and have saved once in a while.. but I have not saved consistently.. week after week... Do you have a system for doing this? Do share if you do:)...

I love using coupons and do it alot. It's hard to say how much I save because it varies but I do save alot using them.
