    I was wondering how everyone is managing without double couponing?? I never had double couponing except for Kmart every once in awhile. But how has your shopping changed and changing your budget??

    I am very new to couponing. So far i have only been getting the Sunday paper and cutting coupons out of that, trying to match those coupons to manufacturer coupons and store sales (something i used to never do, stupid of me). I believe i read somewhere that there's no point in getting the...

    Was in Kroger the other day and noticed that they had a new, and very visible, coupon policy taped next to the credit card reader. I laughed and told the cashier I wondered when that was going to happen. She said they just want to keep people from clearing the shelves. Ever since Extreme...

    2K of food for a negative balance put on a gift card? Seriously...who needs 93 bottles of hot sauce or 150 boxes of instant couscous mix in their stockpile just because? I get having stuff stored. But a lot this woman's stuff just seemed to be overkill. 600 packages of candy? I don't know...

    I used to be REALLY good at couponing, before a lot of the stores around here changed their policies. A lot of places here don't double coupons anymore, so I stopped, thinking it wasn't worth my time. Recently, with a little encouragement from a few of my friends I decided to get back into it...

    Ugh, Winn-Dixie you are my nemesis. I don't buy much at WD, just don't care for the store but occasionally the deals are worth it. I bought 6 jars of Vlassic pickles BOGO with .75 off coupons. 4 boxes of rice crispy cereal BOGO with dollar off two coupons. 2 cover-girl foundations BOBO...

    What do you find to be big 'no-no's' for couponers, either yourself or others? Some of my personal coupon pet-peeves: -People who 'clear out' all/almost all items on a shelf, leaving none for other bargain seekers -People who do the same with tear-off coupons you find in the store -People who...

    Is it wrong for me to take a couple of extra coupons from the machines in the stores? I took two and used them today and then took two more for when the cheese ran out and I needed more.

    ok ok so I'm sick of paying full price for toothpaste and deodorant! Despite my best efforts to simply cut down on personal care and cleaning products, it is not good enough. And my hair is stringy from dollar store shampoo! I made a list of the products we typically buy, and searched the...

    Okay - I used to coupon like mad and have a huge stockpile of loads of stuff that actually lasted over two years! However, things in life changed and we changed the way we eat and quit couponing. Now we eat mainly whole foods and shop the perimeter of the grocery (produce, meats, deli, little...

    Good Morning America was showing a snippet of a show that is supposed to be on TLC tonight about extreme couponing. People getting $5,000 worth of groceries for $241, etc. I think it's well-balanced, as it talks about the psychological issues of people who need to have 3,000 rolls of toilet...

    I know this has been asked before but.... I understand that the commissaries will take expired coupons? What is the policy and how old can they be? Is there an address in the states they can be sent -- or -- is anyone in the states doing coupon class(es)/seminars that would be interested in...

    Hi all, I am new to couponing, (have only been doing it for the last few weeks) anyway, I was wondering how to get the most bang for the buck so to speak? I've seen where some of you save up to hundreds a month by couponing. My question is , how do you do it? We are a family of 5 so I need to...

    We have been all over with our income over the years. There have been times when we couponed hard- and I'm so thankful that we did. We were able to survive on such a small amount of money for many years. When I would come home with bags and bags of groceries and a mile long receipt I always...
