Coupons?

Do you use coupons? Do you clip coupons? Do they really help you save money? I like to clip coupons but we haven't bought the newspaper in weeks for me to cut them out. But I do use them. I receive coupons for diapers and baby food in the mail so I use those when I can.

Yup I am a coupon collector! I save money too. The key to saving money from coupons, is to only buy what you need. Don't take all your coupons to the grocery store, because you will want to buy those items. Just because you can save $1 on paper towels, but you have 10 boxes of it at home..there is no need to buy more. Make sense? I made a website that is dedicated to saving money and collecting deals/coupons/samples etc... Good for Canadians!
