We all use or have used them from time to time.  I have to be honest I quit using them for a few years, but with one daughter heading to college it seemed like money was getting tighter than before.  My oldest said mom you are obsessed with coupons, my response was you feed a family of 7 on 1 income.  She was quiet after that! I have to also say that the show "Extreme Couponing" was a great inspiration to me getting back into it.  Although my opinion of that show is its unrealistic to think you can save like the people on there did.  First of all the stores all have policies to against most of the practices the people on the show did.  And realistically who really goes out and has 5 to seven shopping carts loaded down with things that more than likely they don't use and won't ever use.  Even if its free or super cheap, if I'm not going to use it I don't need it.  Which also leads me to also say that this show has made stores change their policies and for those of us that do occasionally find that really good deal we can no longer take advantage of it like we used to. Ok off my soap box now!

I will occasionally post a great deal or coupon that I find or that has been shared with me because I believe that sharing leads to great deals for all!!
