First, let me say that I don’t even begin to know all the exact rules on ethical coupon usage, however I do try to always use coupons in a way to save my family oodles of money, without ever sacrificing my integrity. Recently as I was scanning the internet for deals, I came across a few posts on ethical coupon usage that you may find interesting.
I’ve received many emails from readers lately asking if the deals are going to continue as so many new folks are getting into the “coupon game”. Honestly? I don’t know. I can tell that many of the deals I grabbed easily six or seven years ago when I first began using coupons aren’t always as simple to find these days.
But, as many of you all have pointed out, clipping coupons takes time, energy, organization, and a strong desire to save money. So, do I think that the jillions of folks who’ve jumped on to the coupon train will still be around in a year or two? Probably not. I do however think couponing and frugal living in general will continue to grow, so it’s important that we all use coupons ethically to continue to get the very best deals.
