I used to be an avid coupon clipper, and it was not unusual for me to go into Kroger with no money, and come home with cash and groceries.

I want to, need to...but it's hard when you live 90 miles from where you shop!

Those shows where they buy hundreds and pay nothing?

I do cut coupons, but cant seem to grasp it well. I could never spend the time doing what they do in those shows. I dont have the room either to stock pile. But just as far as clipping here and there, it seems like the coupons dont apply to me. I dont buy prepared food much, or canned foods much. I probably go with 3 or 4 coupons and thats it. I just cant get into much more than that for some reason. And I dont understand what happened at the grocery today. I didnt buy any diapers or meds. Just food. And spent much more than I expected to.

That's fantastic Karen - especially for all of the "no choice" stuff that you had to buy. Definitely stop by the Coupon Clippers board - I'd love to see some new faces there.

I often find good coupons for specific products that I use either on Facebook or on the company's website, so check and see if you can get any for those skin care products you use!

I tend to buy a lot of store brands, they are just as good sometimes better, than the national brands. And I've found that they are soemtimes the same price or cheaper than the national brind using the coupon. So it's kind of a waste for me a lot of the time when I'm buying store brands anyway.

I agree, Misty, that is why I had QUIT clipping. So I was thrilled that Kroger was giving me coupons on their store brand!
