Unhappy Do your family &/or friends make fun of your couponing?

Do your family and/ or friends think your couponing is silly? I KNOW that I save tons of money and have cut our grocery bill in half. Sometimes I say something about a great deal and they look at me like I have a horn growing out of my forhead... God forbid I mention my stockpile of items, then they snicker...

Just looking for a little support on the issue....

You are in good company here at AFC! We know how you feel.

I get made fun of too, but lately, my friends and family are starting to use more coupons too so I am happy about that!

Yes. My sister always jokes with me that I'm like our Great Grandma that wouldn't eat at Long John's or KFC without a coupon. I just laugh at her and remind her who helped her get those free Glade Candles, Jane Makeup, and the stockpile items I've shared with her. Puts her back in her place pretty quickly. I'm sure though if she still lived here she'd easily get into it as well but the stores they have back home are limited so her deal days consist of the Dollar Store, Dillon's, or Walgreens.

My husband pokes fun at me, but I know he loves that saving money is my new obsession instead of the hundreds of dollars I used to have to spend at the mall for the same rush!

My husband thinks it dorky, but he doesn't complain when I only spend pennies at cvs and get over 75% off our groceries all the while getting all the stuff we need. My mother in law thinks its weird too, but hey, I'm saving money for my family. Why just throw it away!?

My husband complains about the gas I waste driving to the stores with the sales all time.

My mom and dad on the other hand always say it's great!

I get it all around. DH doesn't like to hear about it (see my siggy?) and complains if he is with me I'm taking too long or holding up the line. My sister says I'm going to jail, even though it's all legit.

I just come here....

I love saving money and I'm glad we have this site to share of bargains with others who feel the same.

I think my DH thinks I have lost it too, but last weekend when he saw the CVS deal, and the amount I spent he was in awe. Plus, it satisfies my need to shop (without spending a ton), and it is kind of like a game to me.

Some do -- I just don't talk about it with them. -- I don't worry about it -- they just don't get it.

Some get it and want to hear about my deals -- A few have actually started couponing a little too. -- I share a few coupons but not the good ones until I know they will be used.

You are not alone!

My friends and family are embarrased to shop with me. I used to be so excited to share my great deals with them, but grew tired of their negativity and pickiness.

Just this week at work I found out another co-worker was being forclosed on her home and was declaring bankruptcy. She has two kids under 5. My nuturing, generous side kicked in and I wanted to share my coupons with her. She seemed unsure, so I took her to Target & Walgreens on an extended lunch break to stock her up on some free / cheap stuff. The feedback I got from her today was that the family didn't like the Campbells soup, the target cheese was ok, but they prefer to buy Kraft, the Flat Earth chips were gross andthe jane makeup was cheap. I was so dissapointed! No wonder they are in that shape!

I love my good deals and I appreciate others like you on this board!

oh, i have a friend like that. i feel bad that her family is always struggling. but i just can't bring my self to help her anymore since i only get complaints about the stuff i give her. she had to use cloth diapers since they had no $ so i gave her about 10 bags of luvs from my stock pile since i don't care for them and have enough that i can be picky. she complained so much about those that i wanted to snap! whatever happened to beggers can't be choosers? thats why guys, you understand whay i "need" 50 tubes of tooth paste, and more body wash that my whole family can use. and why i would go get sambucol at cvs even though i would never use it. no one else gets that!

My DS ALWAYS says something about it. In fact today I washed his pants, and he told me he left gum in the pocket. Then he couldn't find the other pack. I told him, it is on sale at CVS. He said, "On sale, mom? I don't care if it is on sale or not, I just want some." DD says coupons are my best friend. But the cutest story is when I was first married, times were rough, and DH and I went to the grocery store, he wanted something, I don't remember what it was now, but I looked through my q's and told him "we don't have a coupon for that". He looks back at that now and says he is glad that he can buy stuff now even if we don't have a coupon. LOL.

I have a few friends that are really starting to get into coupons and my mom does as well. My sister on the other hand says that it is excessive. Oh well, she can pay full price but I'm not going to.

My husband makes fun of me but he says he is still proud of me. Now my family yes they always say something. Yet they always want to know what I got this week so they can try to get some. I tell them give a man a fish feed him for a day teach him to fish and feed him for a lifetime. Maybe one day they will want to know my secrets until then IDK.

My DH and kids USED to make fun of me at first. Now my daughter comes up and says "Mom, check the boxes today and get me one!" (she means the auctions here LOL) My DH has started saying "When you go to CVS again...get me XYZ, I know you can get it free..." and even my 17yo son has started asking for my baby coupons (we don't have babies) for a friend who is expecting.

It's now the runing joke at home. Anytime I pull out something from the pantry, etc that is "new" the standard line is......."let me guess.....you had a coupon for that?"

And if I buy something the line is "yes, I HAD a coupon for it too"!

My DD's are not thrilled at the extra time it now takes me in the store to figure it out sometimes, but they appreciated my first (and only) "free" CVS trip which scored them both lip gloss and gum for free!!

I think DH feels I will outgrow this "phase", I'm not so sure!!!!

My DH makes fun of me too, and doesn't like to shop with me. But he loves the money I save and how well stocked our house is.

I can talk to MIL about it to an extent....she also coupons & stocks up some, but she doesn't get the whole CVS & Wags thing....things there's something wierd about those great deals for some reason. Says they're "too good to be true"

My 12 yo DD does the same thing...."mom, when you go to CVS tomorrow (since I go to 1 almost every day!) will you get me XYZ?"

I have learned to be careful who I will tell about my fabulous deals. Not everyone can appreciate a great deal.
