    This sounds so interesting. I can't wait to see how much you girls save.
    I clipped coupons last week for the first time in forever and saved $9! I was so excited!!

      Is this for the US only or can Canadians use it too?

      I use coupons, but it only ever saves me a few dollars, I don't understand how you guys say you can save 60-90%, or how you can get 30$ worth of stuff for 1$! That is just nuts! The best I do is when cereal is on sale for like 2$ a box, and sometimes there will be coupons for 1$ off per box (either right there, or coupons I have saved from another time) and so I get cereal at 1$ a box and I get so excited. But we're talking like once a year this happens :) Also there is some stuff I never pay full price for, I always stock up when it's on sale (canned soft drinks, canned foods, cereal, pasta, etc) but still that stuff will be at most half price when it's on sale. I don't understand how you guys are saving so much money on so much stuff! I thought I was cheap (my husband calls me the Bargain Hunter) but I obviously have some stuff to learn from you girls!

        Its really easy to save a lot at CVS... You basically combine their instant rebate type promotions (Extra Bucks) with manufacture coupons and store coupons and then "roll" the "extra bucks" you made from previous purchases and keep on doing it over and over again. It takes some time to get a hang of it, but I will never need to buy things like toilet paper, toothpaste, shampoo, pain relievers and other stuff again.

              WOW! You have me so intrigued Nicole. I will definitely have to look into this. I'm way to lazy to do coupon clipping but this looks so easy!

                i really dont use too many coupons- and i just take the coupon section out of the paper and just throw it in the file. when the weekly list is posted it tells you where to find any corresponding coupons- so i only cut the ones i know i am going to use

                  Okay, so I looked into this, but I have to say that I'm still VERY skeptical. lol You say you don't use very many coupons, but isn't that how you get your savings? I'm just confused!

                  Reading through that site it seemed like they just tell you where to get the coupons for everything, then it's up to you to search them out and cut them. Then, once you find them, you go to the store-making sure you read the fine print (i.e. you have to buy two to get the discount, etc.)-and then have to hand over a fistful of coupons when checking out?

                  Okay, it's gotta be easier then that if you're so excited about it!What am I missing? LOL

                    Ok so I thought you got all the appropriate coupons emailed to you and you printed them. Where I got that idea I have no clue??

                    I don't get the paper either so getting the coupons wouldn't be to easy for me.
