Couponing, take it or leave it?

To coupon or not to coupon?  For me, I’ve been leaning towards the “not to coupon,” for the past few years.  Coupons are great to save some money while shopping.  I still use coupons when I see them on the shelf while shopping at my favorite retailer so I can’t go around saying I never use them. They are there at my convenience.  I’ll share my reasons why I choose not to coupon at the end.  In the meantime check out the reasons these others do not coupon.

coupon – noun: A voucher entitling the holder to a discount off a particular product.  A detachable portion of a bond that is given up in return for a payment of interest.

I seldom see coupons for apples or broccoli

Why don’t I coupon?

  1. Savings vs Time ratio is just not worth the effort
  2. Store brands are usually cheaper than national brands & coupon savings
  3. Coupons just aren’t available for what I’m buying
