@graygodess20:  Yes! I’m not an extreme couponer, that is too much for me, but I do try to coupon and shop sale items as much as I can. I think a good place to start is to start following websites that ad match sales and coupons for you.

Two that I like are:

http://hip2save.com/ and http://grocery.coupondivas.com/

Hip2save has a good article on starting to coupon. I follow just what advice makes sense for me, and I have my own system I follow for organizing and keeping the coupon inserts.

If I could be like those people on Extreme Couponing, I would, however the grocery stores in Canada don’t offer as many promotions as ones in the US

I don’t coupon for groceries. But, I do for department stores, Target and the like. I certainly am not into extreme couponing.

I don’t, but I have tried to get into it from time to time.  Most of the coupons that I get my hands on aren’t for things that I would typically buy anyway, so I feel like I’m wasting money when I try to use them.

I don’t “extreme” coupon, but I do use coupons as much as possible. My favorite method is loading virtual coupons to my Kroger card – I can browse through the offers online, don’t need to bring an envelope full of clippings with me (though I still usually bring some anyway)… pretty easy. And Kroger’s website also has a “free” coupon every Friday, for a random product. I’ve gotten free salsa, crackers, granola bars, cookies… though I just realized yesterday was Friday and I forgot!

That show is insane!! I can’t imagine how they do it. I do use coupons, but certainly not like that.

@graygodess20:  I coupon and pay attention to sales but in Canada it’s really not possible to extreme coupon like you can in the states (there’s no double valueing, you don’t get credit if the coupon is  $1.00 off but the item if $0.75 – that $0.25 is gone)

I have recently downloaded an app for my phone that gives you money back on special items, I have a points card for the grocery store (although I usually only go there when they have big bonus events – it’s not that close to me).

For crafty/wedding related items I am faithfully using my Michaels 40% coupons etc.

Nope, never. The coupons sre almost always for crappy processed food and I dont buy that crap. I buy grass-fed meat, raw milk, free-range eggs, raw milk butter and raw milk yogurt from the Amish. I get my produce from the farmers market. I buy baking supplies in bulk from a store run by Mennonites. The few things I still buy from the supermarket are usually store brands and on sale.
