    I totally agree that keeping it simple is what’s best for busy moms. But I disagree with the method of “use your normal shopping list and use coupons if you have them”. I will be honest, using 3 or 4 coupons on a few items while you’re at the grocery store will NOT save you enough money to make it worth your time. It will almost ALWAYS end up being cheaper to buy the store brand/generic. The shoppers on TLC’s Extreme Couponing put time and effort into shopping for their families and building a stockpile, and it’s unrealistic for anyone to think that they will be able to achieve the same results without the same effort.

    On a more positive note, I love your site! I’m a complete organizing freak!! And you have some really great tips to share with readers! Thanks!!

    If I cut out coupons, I almost always forget to take them to the store with me. I also find that I typically buy generic brand for a lot of stuff. BUT … when if I see a coupon for something I know I will buy brand name I will cut the coupon out. I don’t save a ton, but a couple dollars a month is still money saved.

    Like I found a $1.00 and 1/2 gallon Silk drink. I’m lactose intolerant and typically buy this anyway. I suppose it depends on if you like the generic tastes or not. Most taste the same as brand names, but some are just not the same.

    Melony, I disagree somewhat. I always only clip what I will be purchasing anyway, and usually save about $30-$50 per shopping trip!

    It’s the people that make it their full time job that can come away with saving HUNDREDS of dollars every shopping trip. I can still save pretty good money with just grabbing what I’ll use.

    Anna, totally agree!

    I so agree. Keeping all of the coupons in one place is key!
