Do you think that we are using discount coupons enough?
Does anyone believe in using these do avail of the discount of the products.
I use coupons whenever possible, and I would think that others do too. especially in today's economy, I use it in combination with smart shopping (shopping during sales, and comparison shopping). As noted in some of my hubs on frugal living, I only recommend using coupons when it makes sense, that is, saves you money.
I think you need to combine coupons with the sales in stores. That often means that you need to hold onto those coupons for a few weeks to get the best deals. I definitely do not have the time or patience to be an "extreme couponer" because I can't devote 20-30+ hours a week to coupons! I'm bad about cutting coupons and sticking them in a drawer and forgetting about them until they expire.
Digital coupons are a "toughie" for me. I LOVE the convenience, but don't like that they don't double like other manufacturer coupons do at my local stores. Also, since I don't have a smart phone (I know, total old-school) I can't delete them easily, even if I find a great peelie or blinkie coupon in-store.
I do. I am a couponer who will save no less than 50%. If more people used coupons, I think they will find that there is a possibility to keep more of your money and actually get more product. It just takes a little research to see how much you save with the time put into getting all your deals and coupons organized for your shopping trip. You even get the opportunity to try new items for free.
There is also a lie that is said about coupons, "you can only get items you don't use with coupons". This is a false statement. There are coupons for meat, rice, pasta, quick sides, soda, chips, diapers, baby food, formula, even alcohol and cigarettes. All available in the sunday paper and online for printing.

Ladies, If a man used a coupon on a “first date” would it turn you off?Recently I saw an article that was laced with comments from women slamming guys who used coupons or discount cards on a first date. Assuming you would normally go to that particular place or event, does it matter much that you...
