How does FI/DH feel about coupon clipping/saving?

I don't know about you...but i'm suuuuch a cheap-skate and try to save AAAAAAAALL the time. FI constantly makes fun of me for it: getting generic stuff, clipping coupons, or spending hours online looking for something I want cheaper.  He tells me it's cute...until we're in the Walmart check out and I'm taking things out of the cart!


Anyone else??

My FI doesn't really get the point of couponing because he makes the money and I spend it lol he thinks it's a waste of time and doesn't physically see the money we're saving so it's hard for him to understand the point but I'm the same. I make specific trips to the store to only get things I have coupons for, or that are on sale. It's a great way to save tons of $$$$$$$

My husband didn't see it at ALL, but after a week of couponing, we had enough 'extra' for him to buy some call of duty game. Then it was EYE OPENING.

I always tell him there's no reason to pay full price for ANYTHING. If it EVER goes on sale, then its already marked up. Why go out for dinner and pay in full when we can bring in a little slip of paper that saves us 15% on something we would be doing anyway?

hahaha @Jenn "some call of duty game"... thats probably the only that I got FI for Christmas that he had to have... boys will be boys ;-)


FI likes to clip coupons haha so he is cool with it. We both don't have much money right now since I'm a student and he has an entry level job so if we can save some here and there it helps!

DH really doesn't mind that I clip coupons.  I am only able to get coupons online though, because at our apartment complex, we cannot get the paper delivered because of our security gate.  : (
