I don't buy the junk either. I wind up donating a lot of coupons to the military. I definitely try to use what I can though for canned fruits and veggies and the frozen veggies. There were even coupons for the Cascadian Farms products, which can be used on the frozen fruits and veggies.

Take Care and God bless,

I've been trying to use coupons for many years. Not been successful. emoticon

Either the stores where I shop do not allow coupons OR the food is junky.

Frustrating.

Best wishes to you!

I usually send most of my coupons to my cousin but if I see toothpaste coupons or for any thing I need then I swipe it for my use. I see yoghurt, pasta and brown rice coupons sometimes so I use those as well. I usually use the ones I get from Target when you check out or other stores I frequent. I buy mostly produce, organic and vegetarian & vegan foods so I keep on look out for those items. I mainly just use stores that overall have the best prices since most of what I purchase coupons don't work for me unless its the biweekly Target run!

Tracey,
I shop at QFC which I believe is part of the Kroger family. I get coupons from them a lot plus I get the $ 15.00 off produce every so often too. I just got one for $ 12.00 off when you spend
$ 120.00. I have one of their cards which also saves me money and I save on fuel also by the points that I accumulate when I shop. Plus I can go to their website and load my QFC card with coupons for the week. That way you don't have to worry about carrying so many of them.
But, Yes I use them all the time for certain things only. But, QFC has ones for Meat, produce, dairy, cheese, fish even chicken and bread.

I only use them when they are for something I am buying anyway. Our stores have so many bogo's that it is often a free item if there is a coupon to add.

Is anyone else doing this? There are a lot of unhealthy foods that they offer coupons for, but I really try hard to not buy everything that I get coupons for and tend to share my coupons when I can.

I've also been getting coupons from Kroger and this last batch, they included a dollar amount off of $15.00 (I think) of produce.

Take Care and God bless,
