I am 44 and have couponed since I was 21 but got a lot better since joining AFC in 2008. I still don't understand some stores though as it confuses me like WAG points I hate that store.

Off and on over 20 years. I love deals in all shapes and sizes and my interests, time, commitments, location, and family has shaped how and where we are best able to save money. I've gone through many phases... warehouse, online, rebates, dollar stores, generics, digitals, printables, inserts, drugstores, exchange/commissary, local grocery stores... and Walmart has been with me through it all...

I can finally say I just do what works for me and my family. Its no longer about how, but where are people willing to work with me and my family to save the most money.

Since the early '80s when I started working. Even longer if you count with my mother. I haven't ever really stopped. Maybe I'm too cheap( What pay full price!), or I just haven't won the lottery yet. I've got a funny feeling even if I won the lottery, I'd still use coupons. AFC has really helped open a whole new world of online coupons that I didn't even know existed.

Since the early 80's with my aunts. If anyone shops at Ingles an can remembers when they use to double every coupon up to .50 No restrictions on how many coupons. I can remember my aunts putting the coupon on top of each item they had coupon for. They would get a car load of groceries for nothing. Uncles would go dumpster diving for coupons. My one aunt Gorggie she was big into rebates also. We got Kool-Aid mugs, Nescafe world coffee mugs, Nesquik mugs. Also cash rebates. I say she couponed her way into heaven. I can see her standing at heavens gates saying I have a coupon for Heaven.
I have been couponing on an off for 20 + yrs.
The longest break I have taken was when my mom died.
She loved my couponing.

I have couponed since about 1998. I started small using couopons for diapers and a few boxed foods I found coupons for. Then for my second child in 2005 I started to get a little better. About 2007 I was rocking some really good deals. Then 2009 I really dedicated a lot of sleepless nights to couponing. It started while I was up late BF my third child who was very colicky. I found clipping coupons to be very relaxing. I was getting his diapers for almost nothing and stumbled across a lot of great coupon sites. I was then able to become a SAHM. Thanks to couponing I have been able to stay home and saved lots of money.

My mom did it so I tried to do it in my 20s and 30s but didn't really get in to it that much. One of the woman in my office started showing me all the great deals at Target and CVS when I was in my 40s and then I really got in to it which would have been around 2008 or 2009.

About 15 years for me. Sometimes I think I am a little OCD - I just can't fathom paying more for things when I know I don't have to.

I remember Green Stamps... But they were on their way out when I started and double coupons was starting to take over.

S&H lost the court case that they couldn't stop people from trading stamps.

My mother always got green stamps and gold stamps! She always shopped on Wednesdays so she would receive double stamps

I have been using coupons since 1977, so 38 years.

My kiddo is almost 15, I really started couponing when he was a baby- out of necessity (thanks to no child support being paid). I was on a couple year break until now... what was I thinking??? I'm now back to getting the paper, ecoupons for frys, cartwheel and any other place I can find to trim the budget.

I loved going to the green stamp store to choose our gifts. Mom and Granny did both green and yellow stamps and shopped on Wednesday to double their stash. I still only cook rice in one of the pans my granny got. I remember store coupons for Mellorine(fake ice cream) from the IGA for $.37 a half gallon and my mom sending each kid to buy the limit with the coupon.
I've couponing, rebating, and doubling since 1974 when I left home for college. Sure, some years I did more than I do now but I've persevered over the years learning, sharing, and teaching others when possible. I've collected upc's from family and friends during the 1980's to get Del Monte stuffed animals for my unborn child,one animal which was lambie. That child still has him to this day and he turned 32 Aug.4th. I have received deep dish pizza pans, good cook cookware, a blender, tons of free cookbooks, measuring cups,Kellogg's and Peppridge Farm shopping bags, $50 worth of cheese and a pizza cutter which I still use today. I've seen a lot of changes in couponing over the years but today's technology is so awesome. It's great having A full cup helping with what coupons I need to use when I go in a store. Although I'm still learning how to use it all. I love couponing and always will!

I have been home with my kids since my oldest was born in 2000. We had a lot of debt, still working on it, but in 2007 I said "That's enough". And it never went higher. I got better at coupons, budgeting, stockpiling, cooking, finding cheap fun, etc. We aren't perfect at it, but love where we live (Charlotte, NC) and all the good deals at Harris Teeter, especially super doubles. One of my girls is very frugal too. The second one has champagne tastes on a tap water budget. I am teaching them how to save and budget so hopefully they won't get into the debt that my husband and I did.

Five or six years ago, I was really into couponing. Then, I kind of stopped until recently. I've started back up in the last month or two, and I don't quite remember how I was so good at it before, haha.
