I use coupons when I don't forget and leave them at home. I like to shop Bilo where they double the value.

I don't use coupons because most of the time I buy fresh organic produce (at a local Farmer's
Market) and fresh meats. I might use coupons for dish deg., taoliet paper and napkins but usually look for the cheaper brands.

I use coupons when the item would be cheaper than the store brand. Having two teens at home I try to buy the cheapest healthy item I can. We also have a vegetable garden so there are certain things we don't buy, we grow them, then can or freeze them. Like Crystle, I stock items (ex. toliet paper, wshing powders, dish detergent)

I don't use coupons very often. One reason I don't use coupons is because I usually buy store brands and there usually aren't coupons for store brand items. I am blessed to have both a Dollar General and a Family Dollar VERY NEAR to our apartment! There is also a Foodland that I often wish was an Aldi's!

Catherine, my poor kids never had cereal until about four or five years ago. Eggs and oatmeal (homemade not boxed) were way cheaper. I also made a lot of sausage and milk gravy served over biscuits or toasted bread. emoticon

We use a lot of store brand items now. Milk, cheese, rice, cereal, box mac and cheese, flour..ect. I use more store brands than name brands. My two splurges are Daisy brand lowfat sour cream and Fage 0 yogurt. Both taste best and are healthy.

If you live near Kroger. Kroger.com has coupons you can add directly to your store card.

A couple of sites.....Mommysavesbig.com and coupon.com brings up different sites to print out coupons.
I don't use many coupons anymore for grocery shopping, I do use them for places like JCPenneys.

Cool ! Thanks Crystle ! Yah, we lived on beans and rice growing up (five kids, plus both parents). Well, ok maybe not JUST beans and rice but my parents almost NEVER bought sugar cereals because they cost too much. We ate good, healthy meals.

When I had five children at home I used coupons religiously. We also ate very poorly. I bought what we could afford. White rice was almost free with coupons and so were many prepared side dishes. As God blessed us and I was able I went more to sale shopping.

I've always been a stocker. If I can get dish washing liquid for 50 cents or less it didn't matter if I had some at home or not. I've found by stocking up on sales items with and without coupons I've been able to average 400 to 500 dollars a month on groceries. I did that when there were 7 of us. Now there are four of us. Some months I am able to keep the bill closer to 300.

I'm also curious to know, if there are any special websites you use to get more coupons.

I use coupons but the products I generally purchase (organic), don't manufacture a whole lot. So, I have to find other ways to save (sales).
