Those coupons are money in your pocket and it's the store employees' job to handle them for you. You should feel no guilt for using them. The cashier's attitude was not caused by you. Next time complain to the manager.

I just got into printing manufacturer coupons, and I will probably never go back there with them... I really don't want to be a bother, but I saved a ton of money!! I only used my coupons for items that were also on sale, so I got a double discount (the normal sale price is not included in the $60 I saved, although the store coupons I used are included). I still have about half my manufacturer coupons, which I hope to use at another store when those items are on sale. I also made a list of things that I noticed were on sale, to go look online for manufacturer coupons. I'm obsessed.
please don't spoil the satisfying, good feelings you deserve to be savoring, skittles, having saved yourself about $100 in the grocery store with your smart coupon shopping! your lengthy, somewhat apologetic posts indicate a self-punishing conscience over what-- a cranky, unprofessional cashier who gave you poor service? so totally not your problem! (i envy your successful use of coupons--not easy, i've tried!)

Thank you everyone for confirming that I shouldn't have to feel guilty!! My bf said the same thing! It is NOT easy to find and organize all those coupons with the sales. As long as the store is going to be reimbursed, why should she care how many I have?

She just needs to do her job. You have clearly done yours!

Ditto here. I just don't have the patience to keep track of the sales vs. the coupons and tryng to match them up. I am happy with just buying what is on sale. As long as I look at the flyers the day before I go shopping, I am happy. I like to shop as if I were a rich lady of leisure.

I'm tired of pain from osteoarthritis and plantar fasciitis! I know I have to lose weight, but it is so hard when it hurts to walk and I know I need to exercise!

Abso-friggin-lutely !!! You - and evryone else - have the right to use those .. and the employee who treated you that way needs to be reported .. who knows how many others she has done this to. You are far more patient than I would have been ... hold your head high and keep on saving .. good job on that !
