    I wish we had double/triple coupon days.
In Canada visit
I like to buy stuff on sale and then use my coupons as well.
Also, I visit ebay, I buy my coupons there (they generally list the coupons they have) so I may spend $5.00 and get $80 worth of coupons. Some I won't use but I leave them at the store for others.

    I too use coupons.. right now, CVS is my friend! I'm stocking up on all the toothpaste, shampoo, soap, dental products that my family can use for the next year, all for pennies on the dollar in cost! I combine coupons, both from online sources and the paper, sale items, and the funny money they give back. Yesterday I picked up a razor, a couple of kashi meal bars, and some chocolate for hubby, and paid $2plus change.

    Using coupons, rebate offers, shopping around sales, etc., has been a part of our family's lifestyle since childhood. Sometimes my friends laugh, but my food bills, etc., are less than their bills. Coupons go beyond grocery shopping. Check out department store coupons, online coupons, appliance stores, etc. It's all out there.

    I always use coupons if I have them. I go to and choose the coupons I want. emoticon

    I don't leave home without my coupons. And take advantage when the store offers double or triple the value of the original coupons. Ask other family and friends that don't use coupons if you can have them that's more savings.
