Michaels coupons right now are my best friend.  I’m there so often these days that I think I will be on a first name basis with the cashiers there soon!

Restaurant.com is a GREAT place to get inexpensive gift certificates for dining out in your area!!

In Canada the coupons are kind of lame… nothing like in the US! I can’t wait for the day I can become a coupon clipper! lol it’s a sport! Everytime I visit my FI I “practice” my coupon clipping skills & even started doubling coupons my last trip. Woo!

My FI walks away from the check-out & I squeal in delight, while the cashier looks at me like I’m certifiable. You have to understand… to be able to get cheese for $2 is incredible to me when the same block of cheese in my hometown is 4 times as much.

I don’t get the newspaper so I don’t use coupons for most things.  Just the Micheal’s and Bed Bath and Beyond.

I’ve been trying to get better about clipping coupons.  I usually try to check the Target flyer to make sure I’m buying stuff on sale.  Also, our local grocery store does online coupons, so I try to check that email before we go shopping.

Love coupons! My FI and I go to the market across the street every Sunday and get the paper and have coffee and clip together, its becoming a Sunday morning ritual. My favorite are Bed, Bath and Beyond… I’ve heard if you are registered there you can use expired coupons, and as many as your have, when you go to finish off your registry!

Coupons rock! I don’t get the paper, but I will use them when I get ahold of them 🙂

We use Bed Bath ones, and they send them about every month or so.  Also, whenever I shop online I always google [insert store name here] promo code to see if there’s any deals for free shipping, % off, etc.  It works!!

@Queen: I do that too!  A great site for coupon codes is retailmenot.com

I’m getting pretty good about using online coupons (so far as I’ll refrain from purchasing something if there is no coupon code offered!) but I don’t coupon clip for groceries—although I want to start, for sure. I am SO impressed by some people’s ability to coupon shop!

Neither of us were clippers until we got married.  It’s kind of cute.  We subscribe for Sunday delivery of the paper and have a little routine:  after church we head to Starbucks for breakfast and coupon scouring.  It’s kind of like a game… we get so excited when the grocery receipt lists $20 savings or more.  What really scores is when we have a coupon for one of the buy-one-get-one specials at Publix.  :o)

I use online coupons as much as possible, and Michael’s coupons, but other than that, no. There’s only one thing I hate more than being behind someone with a ton of coupons- being behind people who still write checks. Drives me NUTS!
