Do you use coupons? It seems like there’s coupons everywhere nowadays. Online, newspapers, magazines Groupon, DailyDeals, text messages, and so on.

I coupon to keep my budget for household items down. I don’t usually find too many coupons for the food that I eat. Here’s a link to my latest couponing trip where I saved 51%. I follow a couple of sites such as Living Well Spending Less for tips.

I try not to use coupons on items that I would not normally buy also. I also think that extreme couponing is a little too extreme. No one needs 100 tubes of toothpaste.

Here are some tips:

  1. Don’t buy items just because you have a coupon

  2. If you do decide to be an extreme couponer, please do not clear the shelves

  3. Make sure you read the fine print on the coupon. Don’t try to “scam” the system

  4. Make sure you understand different stores coupon policies

What’s your input on coupons? How far do you go?
