I am very surprised this is not a sticky thread, discussing how much money did you save using coupons this week at various stores. I guess I will begin.

Saved $42.35 at Kroger this past Sunday. What say you?

I use a mix of print at home coupons and newspaper coupons. The best part is when you have coupons and the product is on sale!

You can order any samples posted....most come with coupons.

You can also check out the online coupon sites on this thread:

It is always worth getting your best deal (call customer service for a great deal or look for an advertised special) of your local Sunday newspaper.

I got that great $100 printer for only $10.95 with the coupon from Best Buy that Bob posted last week!!! I think that has been one of my best savings yet.

My daughter is currently living with me, with her 4 year old, and she is in charge of the cooking....so I don't really do grocery shopping. Since we both work for a newspaper, we do have access to TONS of coupons. She finds the ones she wants and can get 10 copies of it in 5 minutes.

For myself, I have so many samples (and free full size products) of shampoo and lotions, until I don't even have to buy either for the rest of the year.

I think it is also just nice to try out stuff I probably wouldn't initially buy by getting free samples.

For me, it is less about the money.....I just enjoy the hunt.

I agree. That's how I always try to buy. My happiest day was when I saved 46% @ Walgreen's, using both store coupons and newsppr coups when the stuff was on sale. Last week at Publix, I really went overboard w/ the coupons & sales....spent almost $300 but got $98 of groceries for FREE! (32% saved.) It took me a while, but it was worth it...won't have to shop again for 2 or 3 weeks!

Today at Kroger we saved $84 using coupons! It was a good day. Tons of BOGO's plus they were on sale. We won't be needing shampoo, body wash, deodorant, etc until next summer!
