Do You Coupon?

I coupon, and I hope you do too! I have been couponing for years. When I lived at my mothers I would get the occassional coupons from my Grandma's paper, then when we bought Buntryside we started getting the sunday paper, which we now have on a sundays and holidays subscription. Once Hef's dad thought it would be funny to ask me if we really needed to renew the paper and I flipped out and ranted about savings and such forth while he quietly laughed at me. Now my couponing is getting worse because of two things, printing internet coupons and coupon deal websites. This is becoming my new hobby. We went to Hef's Dad's parents and I asked them for their coupons, and I am saving coupons to send on to my sister and nephew. Even basic couponing can be worth it so I hope everyone will consider it. Most coupons are between .50 cents and 1.00, here the paper costs $2, less with our subscription so I only have to use two coupons to get my money back. Here is a recent example of my savings:

Coupons alone: 28.30! worth it!
And thats just at the grocery store, last week I bought 120 lbs (6 20lb bags) of Pedigree dog food for $25! HA! I'm still doing a hapy bunny dance on that one!

OMG I love to coupon, I know that was like, totally, like, valley girl; but that’s how excited I get about couponing! Lol in DE we have a grocery store called Super Fresh and they will double your coupons up to a dollar, LOVE it! Incidentally so very jealous over the Dog Food score, yea you!
I saw a lady in Target once shopping w/her hubby and she had a trapper keeper (remember these from 3rd grade?) w/baseball card sleeves that she held her coupons in I was so impressed I stopped them right in mid aisle to gush on and on about her very clever coupon holder. (im ocd so that was the best thing ever to me) her hubby looked at us like we were crazy but she said lots of people see that and stop her to complement her coupon holder.

I will use some coupons if they are for products I already buy and are at least .50 off. I would probably use more if any of the stores around here doubled coupons, but since they don't, I usually do the heavy shopping at the store whose club card I have. Bandit looks like a food inspector; where do you hide the bags so they don't get chewed?

Ok I am with you Sorry! I just mail ordered some coupons and bought some on ebay! I am working on a coupon binder now because my coupon accordion has gotten too full, I already popped the closure off once.
FabFurs- that sucks! I can't believe they don't double coupons! Luckily the market on our island does.
For both of you I definetly recommend finding coupon websites for help finding deals. I use www.thekrazycouponlady.com

Wow! That's actually amazing. I think I need to learn. After finals. I wonder if they even have coupons around here?

I also wonder whether internet coupons are really worth it if you use a lot of them. Printer ink is pretty expensive, so is paper!
