Coupons can save you money but it takes time to gather, cut, and research each coupon and grocery store advertisements.
I am not an expert or extreme coupon user. In my experience coupons for products we already use often have been a nice saving.
Our local grocery, HEB doesn’t double coupons. I have been lucky enough to seek out their clearance section, combine a manufacturer coupon and gotten free Cover Girl makeup. Those combo finds are rare as it takes multiple trips in one week to happen upon real deals like freebies.
I have shopped a Randalls store that doubled coupons on certain days of the week. I gathered my coupons, circular for that week, and loyalty card.
On that trip I spent $26 for a $67 bill.
Saying that let me again share that I believe in using coupons after you research to make sure it will be a savings for you.
