To Use Coupons or Not

I'm sure a lot of you are more coupon savvy than I am. I am just getting started to use coupons. My parents think it's a waste of time, especially when I have an Aldi so close to me. (For those of you who don't know what Aldi is, it's a store that basically only carries their own brand. So they don't take coupons) But I have decided to use coupons. I have been clipping and cutting for days! I have my little coupon accordion file, and my categories. I'm really very excited. I've also started watching Southern Savers for sales and which coupons to use. *MAN those women put a lot of work in that!!*

Hubby and I went grocery shopping this past weekend, (which isn't the greatest time to go! Mon-Wed is best) and we had a ton of coupons. Ended up saving over $40!! I was impressed. And we didn't even do it with the most savings! Next time I will be more organized and hopefully match the coupons and sales better!

Do you use coupons? Do you have any tips?

Much Love,


  1. I tried couponing, and did really well at first. But then I got lazy with it and stopped. I need to get back into it. It definitely takes a lot of work.

  2. I think coupons are a sham..especially at this point in my life.. I'm sure when I have kids and more space to store stuff it may be good. But for now..I hate when coupons give me $.40 if I buy 3 of something..first off i dont need 3 and by the time I buy 3 i just spent a ton of money! lol Plus I end up buying stuff I don't want or need...
