I'm a bargain hunter, Calya, and try to get as much out of my dollar as I can. Last week I enjoyed a free lunch sandwich because I had a coupon to try a new sandwich the restaurant was introducing. I also clipped a coupon out of the daily newspaper for a free 100-count bottle of 500mg vitamin C. I take one daily, so that saved me about $5. My two coupons saved me a total of about $8. I was a happy camper. And, yippee, I just received another free sandwich coupon in yesterday's mail.
One of our area department stores has an annual "sale" where customers are asked to bring in their (in good condition) used clothing. For each piece of clothing they accept, the customer is given a 20% off coupon to use on clothing and other merchandise in the store. In turn, the store donates the used clothing to Goodwill or Salvation Army.
Every second Sunday, our area mega hobby store has a 40% off coupon for any regularly priced merchandise. I've used that countless times because the store sells more than hobby/craft items. I've bought several pieces of silicone bakeware for quite little money using the coupon.
