Okay, who is a big couponing person? I try to be. In theory, it doesn’t seem that hard. But then somehow I feel like I am missing something. I don’t think I’m doing it right. Maybe I need lessons. Are there such a thing?

It seems to me like I’m spending far more time than it’s worth to save about $6. I know people post that they save like half their bill or other insane things, but I just don’t see it. How can I make that happen? Will this just not work for me if a lot of my bill is produce and beverages?

If someone can point me in the right direction on this, I would sure appreciate it. For right not I feel like I’m doing it pretty half-assed, which makes me think I might as well not bother at all and save myself the hassle.


  1. Hello .. I wish I could help you but I'm up here in Canada. I know in the states it's alot different but I see alot about cvs and walgreens?

  2. Thanks for the follow (following you right back). :)

    While occasionally, I use some coupons, I'm not really "into" couponing. Only if and when I happen to have some sent to me via mail.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog!! So sorry I'm just getting around to following you back. I rarely check my main page on mbc but glad that i found it!

    Thanks Again!

  4. I'm with you on the coupon thing I try I really do but sometimes it doesn't seem worth it. I'm Becca thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm now following you. I look forward to reading more.

  5. Couponing for healthy life style is almost non existent. Coupons (99%) are for those products that I consider "junk" from many points of view: they contribute to the metabolic syndrome (obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes)
    Coupons for great food stuff are exceptionally rare. I chose to buy what's good for my family's health, rather than saving a few bucks on food that in time will make us sick.
    I am very straight forward on that subject, i.e., what I eat and feed my kids. If you have a minute, read this article about Slow Arsenic http://celebratewomantoday.blogspot.com/2010/06/slow-arcenic-for-childs-healthy-meals.html
    Thank you for your post,

  6. Laura - I understand completely. I can't say that I'm a food purist by any stretch, but I do find that the majority of what I buy just doesn't seem to HAVE coupons for it. I wish the stores would come out with coupons for veggies, fruits, more dairy, etc.
