    Question Coupon Savings

    How much do you typically save in coupons each month?

    I don't shop anywhere that doubles but I save about $30 a month. I've really been doing it for about 3 months now so I'm happy with that amount so far!

    I haven't been keeping track of my coupon savings. I use them every time I grocery shop, which is every 2 weeks. Using the stores bonus card, this year I've saved $350!
    I plan on tracking the coupons next year so I can see how I'm doing.
    I was just mentioning on another site that I think the values of coupons have gone down. Like, what used to be 50 cents off is now on 40 or 35 cents off.

    I'm starting to track for 2009, but one store I go to has a total for the year at $751, so a little over $60/month for me (store sales are included here too). I wish I had kept better track. I go to 2 stores regularly and only the one has a store card.

    I'm not sure about every month but I try to use coupons on every trip and when ever I do the savings is typically $15 but I will have to start tracking this next week.

    I think $30 is great without doubling! I don't know how much I save, but if I had to guess, I'd say anywhere between 30-60 on a total ranging from 100-150. My goal is a 1/3 - 1/2 off the origianl total. Did that even make sense?!?!

    It's really hard to say since my coupon use has declined since having the baby. Before that I'll say $100/mo at the grocery. CVS I have 2 cards but haven't been rolling the ECB's since mid-November. I hope to start up soon once we're ok'd to go to public places.

    Right now, my focus has been solely on baby products. I have been saving $$ in Similac checks, P&G deals and baby bucks promotions.

    I average about $45 a month. I shop at Ingles and they do double up to .50 cents. A couple of times a year they have triple coupons.

    I have a ton of receipts to log but I would guess I save on average
    $60 a month just with Q's. I only have to buy for 2 adults, no pets. I'll come back later to tell you what I actually save. Whatever the amount it's more money in my pocket so I'll never stop using them.

    I actually sat down earlier tonight and started listing the amounts saved...with cpns and with store cards, but of course I got side tracked with 6th grade homework and didn't get finished. I must put that on my things to finish list..

    At the grocery stores, I probably average $200 to $250 a month. No doublers here, but my favorite grocer accepts competitor's coupons as well as 2 coupons on their BOGO sales. They also let you stack mftr and store coupons. My biggest savings come from the BOGO sales w/coupons hands down!

    Walgreen's and CVS savings vary alot, but I might average that out to about $75-$100. I get alot of GCs using the prescription coupons, and then of course there's the RRs and ECBs, which I didm't include in my average.

    But even if I only saved $10 a week, I'd still use them. Savings = Cash in our pockets, and every little bit helps!

    I would say I save around $100.00-$200.00 a month at least, at Krogers. At CVS it varies I don't always shop there..I have enough toothpaste and shampoo to last me a year or two. I have already saved $70 at CVS since the beginning of the year.

    Wow, those are great numbers! Guess, I shouldn't post since my savings are much less, but every little bit helps. I'm not great with the coupons, but I easily save $10-20 a month without much effort. I should remember to pick up a Sunday paper more often. However, I've used the CVS ECBs, store & computer coupons over the last month or so & still saved. I have a friend who's going to start saving extra coupons for me if she remembers. I'd like to increase my savings to $25 or $35 each month. It's great to see how much others save!
