Do you clip/print out coupons?

Since we have had to tighten our budget, I have started clipping and printing coupons to save on everything from clothing to groceries. Is anyone else doing this to? If so, what coupon sites do you have the most luck with? So far, coupons.com has been a good resource for me.

i use coupons.com, mypoints, cvs card and any other site i can find. i always have used coupons and only buy something now a days if i have a coupon for it. i shop at ralphs and if i go to their website, i can preload coupons onto my shoppers card that way i'm using less paper, always a good thing.

We don't have a Ralph's here. I wish that we did. That sounds like a good idea!

All the sites are basically the same and a lot of them you can only print a certain amount of coupons. I have tried to go on different sites to get more but they are all "linked" together! I usually go to coupons.com Become a member to this one and you will get all kinds of email coupons http://www.rightathome.com/default.aspx Also sign up at walgreens.com for coupons - they send them out once a week some times is 5 off 20 or 10 off 30 plus you always get photo coupons. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE BOX for emails otherwise you won't get them!!!

Yes especially now that the credit crunch is here and the cost of living is getting much more extortionate. Every penny saved here and there is a God send. That's partly why I joined mylot because life was getting to be a bit of a struggle. Regularly get sent an email from the money saving expert Martin Lewis who always includes a few vouchers in his email. Lot's of buy one get one free or half price offers in these.

I watched 'an expert' this morning who claims that this is only the begining and it will get worse over the next year before it starts to get better. Man! I hope he's wrong! I'm all ready doing everything that I can think of to save!

I don't use online coupons, I've tried them before but they never print out properly (think I need a better printer) and thje barcode doesn't scan. I do use coupons/vouchers from newspapers/magazines and ones that get sent out from mailing lists, as long as they're the right type (a definite ammount off rather than a percentage) and can't only be used in one shop then I can use them on the self scan counters in Tescos and get money off my shopping, without having to buy the product.
