Why I coupon

A lot of times I get asked the question, "Why do you coupon?" Now normally I say something along the lines of "Well, to save money."

But really, it goes beyond that.

I coupon to save money yes, and that is one of my main reasons for doing it, but I'm not just saving myself money, I am saving my family money as well. You see, I shop for my family, they do their own grocery shopping, at least for fruits and vegetables and meats and things, and I do the rest of their shopping.  I shop for their shampoos and conditioners, their hair things, pills they may need, body washes, lotions, and other things that I can get cheaper than they can. Sometimes I shop for their foods that don't need to be frozen or refrigerated as well.

Another thing is I can do other things with the money I save.  I can go on vacation, we can but new appliances, we can redo the house, or we can put that money away and save for a rainy day.

Another thing is because I LOVE to coupon.  Couponing is my thing, it is one of my hobbies, and I love to do it.  Being able to clip my coupons and organize them in my binder makes me smile, it helps me to de-stress.  I love it, it makes me happy.  Plus, my fiance loves it because he gets to watch sports, UFC, or wrestling while I coupon.

There are a lot of reasons why I coupon, but those are a few of the major ones =)

So, now a question: Why do you coupon?  Do you use the money you save for other stuff or do you save it?

Let me know in a comment below! =)


  1. Great post, I know that sometimes it is hard to admit we coupon due to the stigma attached. WE get to love it and it helps our families.
