Couponing Challenges

  • Posted on June 16, 2011 at 11:33 PM

Can someone answer this question for me? Why do we only get coupons based on our region? How does that work? Who dictates what areas get certain coupons, while others don’t?  I can understand difference in values, but to not get certain coupons all together frazzles me.

Since I started stepping up  my coupon game I have put, and continue to put, a lot of time and effort into it. I’m yet to save more than 50-60 % on my bill. I knew it would be a challenge because of where I live. It’s still frustrating.

I may be speaking for myself, but here in Montana we take showers, eat a variety of foods, change our children’s diapers and catch colds and the flu. We may be one of  the poorest states in the country, yet we still shop til’ we drop. Throw us a freakin’ bone here coupon people!

I was so pumped last week after reading about Sunday’s up and coming coupons. Yes, I was warned and in turn warned others that not every coupon would be available to us. I still crossed my fingers. I was dying to get my hands on the $2/1 Dial coupon. When I got the paper and combed through the inserts I saw that we didn’t get it. We sell Dial in our stores! Also missing (there is more, but these were the two I wanted/needed/had to have) was the Goodlife Recipe cat treats coupon. I have 5 cats and I’m sure I’m not the only Montanan that has them.

I guess I’ll  just need to work harder. I’m not out to become an “Extreme” couponer, but I do want to save big time money.
