I have started clipping coupons. It is unlikely not impossible, but again, quite unlikely that a store will accept them, since they cannot be scanned at the register. Megan in the first couple of lines of the newsletter Tawra mentions that she knows this will seem contradictory but like she explained as much as we feel and have found so many other ways to save, couponing is one of those things people just want to do and they find it works for them so for those who still really want to do it we did the the e book on couponing.
Within the next week or so we hope to have a sale on something will help those who want to find other ways of saving other than couponing of which there are many. I agree with you about the stress, time more stress in the actual shopping.
Are Promotions and Coupons Really Worth it?
On that show it shows poeple with tubes of tooth paste, why and what does one do with all that? I have 10 children and we certainly don. One thing I do is buy in bulk or cases when things are on sale. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You bring up a few of the reasons why I decided, long ago, that extreme couponing is not for me.
I would also like to point out that a few of my normally courteous, follow-the-rules type friends seem to have no problem bending the rules and disregarding common courtesy when it comes to proving to themselves and others how much they can save on their grocery bill. Should you really use four different computers to print out coupons when the company clearly wants to limit each consumer to two?
How about wiping out a particular product off a store shelf and leaving none until the store gets another shipment next week? One hour plus checkout time is a definite problem for anyone having to wait if you are taking up one of only two cashiers. I understand the need to save, trust me, but we need to remain the same people we are in other areas of our lives.

The truth about couponing
When trying to download, the Adobe window came up, I downloaded it but the book never appeared. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. I try to find coupons for cleaning products, laundry soap, etc. Your article today was a good one. Sometimes couponing can be a bit too much and you do need to figure in your time spent doing it. Good point!! Thanks for a really great newsletter!! I had a friend in high school whose parents did this years and years ago darn I am getting old! All of the family was overweight since most of the things they ate was junk food from the deals.
When I started hearing about saving so much money with coupons, I knew that it would take a lot of time!
Living on a Dime has helped me lot to cut expenses and save. I have had some challenges with our finances over the last several months and we just took another hit so the tips on saving have been great! Would have to agree with the comments posted. We live in a very rural area. The nearest large town is 45 mts away 4. We shop the specials and will stock up on meat or staples when on sale but have found a once a month trip to Costco and Winco great bulk food section!

We raise a big garden, can, dehydrate and freeze. Thanks for reminding people that moderation is the Key! Thanks for this article, and the many insightful comments. I have no place to store my crops. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry. This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself? Although I am an avid couponer and have been told that I need to be on the show, I do agree with your assessment. The major difference in what the show portrays and my couponing is that it does not consume my entire life and I DO NOT take an entire shelf of a product.
Nothing gets me more frustrated than if I need a specific item and the shelf if wiped clean. If I get the product for free, then great, but if not, then nothing lost. I mean how many tubes of toothpaste does 1 person truly need???? Dear Tawra, Thank you for your balanced view and experience. I have add and I deal with so much guilt over NOT couponing. The things you mention above have freed me from this guilt.

I am doing a lot of the things you mention and I do like Aldi. Huge help, thanks so much. I watched the show last week.
One man was a seminarian and he and his wife with baby in tow! THAT I was impressed with. I am all for saving money. I am a stay at home Mom and homeschooling Mom. But I really think that some of these people need to get a life. Do you really need toothbrushes or tubes of toothpaste? Sorry, I have better things to do.
A few of the people on the couponing show were collecting things for others: the military or some charity. All of the others were stockpiling for themselves or family members.
Why We’ve Given Up on Coupons - The Simple Dollar
I am a cashier and also a coupon user. I see both sides of this story. When I first started 8 years ago as a cashier I bought all the items I could for the coupons I had. That was 8 years ago after the first year I had alot of stock pile and am still trying to use some of the items today. During this time I have had to toss numerous items. Most grocery stores in my area have sells on items every 6 to 10 weeks so buy only for a 3 month period at most and enjoy good quality and less STRESS. Where in the heck do they store all this stuff I do not have room ,no basement and attic too hot.
There is just so much you can put in your house. I am a cashier at a store that doubles the dollar coupons and even though I coupon myself, some people are out of control. There are lots of people who do try to scam the store, so I think you would have to understand the position we are sometimes in, and therefore nitpick everything you buy. We have to look it over carefully because that is our job and some people it seems like a LOT of people lately really do attempt to scam us.
