  • This is so true. I am an avid couponer. My family is on one income and we have a newborn – I don’t think we would be able to make ends meet if I did’t use this resource.

  • Coupons are great, but one thing to know is that it may not be worth it to print coupons that are for very low amounts of savings. Printer ink is very expensive, plus you have paper. When I was going to buy a new ink cartridge I found I could not afford it. I did not think it would end up being worth it in the long run.

  • So true. I like coupons, but I don’t use them nearly enough. I definitely don’t print them out that much.

    I found out that some printers (maybe all, I don’t know) won’t even let you scan money. Tried to scan a bill my mom sent my son for his birthday. I was gonna have him write on the printed paper, “Thanks for the money,” and mail it off to his grandma, but the scanner program gave me a message that it would not scan. We had to call grandma and send a “generic” card instead.

  • This is something I can completely agree with. With just a small amount of time spent before shopping, I save on my purchases almost every time. Even though they are small savings, they always add up to a large amount by the end of the year.

  • That’s so true. I guess it has gone to a really limited extent and one cannot stand it but I guess the system has to be that way due to the amount of poverty that one would live in it without having people pay off the debt. I guess it’s all a complicated system that could of been different, but you just need the right people to fix it all.
