I have been trying to read up on some of the finer points of using coupons to save money and while I've always used the Sunday paper coupons, I never knew there was a whole new world to navigate!
Something that I've been conflicted about is the "hoarder mentality" that seems to come with many serious couponers. Just how many tubes of toothpaste and cans of lima beans do you need anyway?? It may be a good deal, but I do like trusting the Lord for "my daily bread" and the excessiveness of it all seems a little much. Not to mention, I don't feel it's the wisest thing for me to spend my hours searching for all of these "deals".
Another one that I really appreciate is Faithful Provisions. This one is very balanced and does a good job of explaining the difference between getting a good deal versus being greedy - which is something I don't like about many of the coupon sites. Some of them even teach you how to use the system in what I believe is unethical. In fact, one of her most recent posts was about couponing ethics.
Do you have any favorites? And, has anyone found it to be worth their time in the long run?
