I have on a very few occaisions saved money with coupons. I have combined a deodrant or toothpaste coupon with a sale and gotten a very cheap deal. 99 % of the coupons I see are for items we don’t use either. If the coupon causes me to buy an expensive or prepared item , then I am really spending more even with the 50 cent off.

Subject: Budget101.com : While we are talking about grocery coupons…
Is it me? I just don’t find a lot of coupons that our family uses. I can’t imagine saving a lot of money with them. I see a lot of frozen foods, icecream (OK, LOVE that but try to avoid it LOL!), the sugary yogurts like gogurts rather than the low-cal versions, prepackaged meal-helpers, snack foods etc. We try really hard to eat non-processed foods and I don’t see a lot of that in the coupon sections.
I do, of course, use the coupons like batteries, shampoos/toiletries, cosmetics and paper products. Just not much grocery.
Am I missing something? Please direct me because our family could sure use the savings!
Thanks a bunch!
