What's your coupon use?

How many coupons do you use in an average shopping trip?

Today at the grocery store I spent $95.69 on 63 items.

My coupon savings was $66.13 so I would have spent over $160 on all those groceries without coupons.

I had 32 separate coupons with this order.

(The checker was NOT happy with me )

So far have not had any checkers upset with me. When I have free coupons I always write in the ammt they seem happy with that. I hope IF I get to go to commissary this month that I use even more

I don't use alot coupons but I do use them. If I am going for health & beauty and paper products that is were I use the most coupons. I try and keep an eye out for the sales and use a coupon along with the sale item to get a better deal.

I write down the amount of the coupons I'm using so I can check the pre-coupon price and post coupon price to make sure all were used as well.

Don't forget that if your grocery has a discount card and a website to check out if they have the internet coupons that can be loaded to your card.

I know Kroger has them which is really great because you can also use a coupon at the register as well.

I tend to shop Aldi more than anything but my Dollar General accepts coupons! I think my highest savings in coupons was about $30, that's been awhile ago. I love it when Noxema has a coupon buy 1 get 1 free! Also, IF I go to Kroger it's for their sales only and use coupons then.

Barb, that was an excellent shopping excursion! I bet the checker was a little miffed but too bad, right? I think she's jealous she didn't have the coupons....well, it's worth a thought right?

What a great saving.
Do you still use coupons a lot?
I'm gonna start doing it more seriously and see if I can save also.
It's a challenge, and I don't know if I have the time, but I'm willing to try.
I'll let you know.

Jos to save some time just cut out the coupons for things that you use then pass the rest along to friends.

I save $100 in coupons every month though not all at the grocery. With matching sales with coupons I can get a lot of things for free or nearly free.
