  1. I’ve used coupons for over 50 years and they have been a tremendous source of helping me save during those years. Whether it is to BOGO free entree at a restaurant and you end up save big-time, or whether it is saving 35 cents on a product in the grocery store. I have found that “pennies make dimes and dimes make dollars and dollars put food on the table and pay the light bill.” Yes, I utilize online coupons extensively these days since I don’t subscribe to a newspaper. I “shop”,, and others as I find them. I find that these 3 are seemingly the 3 major sources for in-store use coupons.
