Agreed. My stores don't even take internet coupons.Make sure you know exactly what your store(s) coupon policy is before you try to shop and use coupons. I know in my area they are getting very strict about coupons and it is getting to the point where it isn't worth the hassle or headache I get trying to use them.
I agree, try to stick with coupons that match up with sales and are for items that your family will eat and use. I will only use a coupon for a product I don't normally buy if I can get it for free.
I found this to be true as well as the poster who said it's getting to the point of being too much of a headache and a hassel to make it worth it. Along with the other good advice you've been given such as matching coupons with ale prices and flyers ect. I would say that if you want to start in a "section" where you might still see some bang for your coupon I've found that the HBA coupons, especially at the drug stores seem to do me the most good.Couponing is nothing like it used to be. Some stores have inflated prices and so when you use a coupon or can double one you are really not saving!
Store brands can be cheaper.
I used to be an extreme coupon shopper. Then the show came out! The END!
