I'm with Susan- I'll clip the coupons that come in the Sunday paper & if I see any good ones in a magazine I may use, but I do not score the internet or spend hours organizing, clipping, or planning shopping trips to 5 different stores to get the best deal. I mean, it does some seem crazy how they show women with cart fulls of groceries paying only $25.00 or something, but they don't even allow double-coupons here so I don't think it would ever happen. Even if they let that happen 'round here, I do not have the time to dedicate to it...or the desire/patience, lol! I remember when the The Grocery Shopping Game came out a few years ago- it seemed neat, but too time consuming and you had to pay to join the website.

My supervisor at work is sort of a coupon-er, but mainly at places like Walgreens, CVS, etc. But those are not stores I frequent and I don't like buying stuff I don't really need just b/c I could get it for practically free.

I wonder how much of what they get for such great prices is what they actually want or need.

I'll look for coupons for stores (other than groceries) if I'm planning on shopping there but otherwise I don't bother. I'm really bad at forgetting to use the coupons I do get...its not worth it to spend time looking for more.

I know! Did you see the episode with the woman who had all the diapers stockpiled? She didn't have any children. LOL

I do it on certain things I we use: pasta, dishwasher tabs, cereal, etc.

I only buy pasta two times a year, at 50+ boxes each time. And each time, Kroger pays me $.01/box to take them out of the store. So I never pay for pasta.

And recently, I "bought" nearly 30 boxes of Finish dishwashing tabs from CVS and after coupons, CVS paid me $.50/box.
 


And for what it's worth, I resent the notion that SAHMs "don't work".
