There is a right and wrong way to coupon. And part of that has to do with how you collect them. There are definitely some dos and do nots. Having proper coupon etiquette will help us all trying to save money through couponing.
1. Don’t steal newspapers. This can be a huge problem in some towns. Unethical couponers have been known for stealing those Sunday papers before you can get outside. Don’t do that!
2. No copying. This includes both internet and any other kind of coupon. You can actually get into a lot of trouble for this, so don’t try it.
3. Leave blinkie coupons for others. You know those little red blinking boxes at the store? Don’t be tempted to take a ton of them. Leave some for the rest of us.
4. Don’t print multiple off the internet. Usually a coupon allows 2 coupons per household. Don’t go changing IP addresses and such to print more.
5. Don’t be sneaky. Sometimes coupons “look” like another product or the size is off and the computer doesn’t catch it. Don’t do that. Use the coupon for the appropriate product.
And don’t forget, you can always leave coupons behind for other people. Along with being an ethical couponer, it’s awesome to help others

I have been asked, “Why did you start couponing?”
My Life is a Lifetime Movie
… seriously. So, when drama happens you do whatever it takes to make ends meet and get through it.
Can you relate? I’m sure you can! In the comments tell us how your life has been like a Lifetime Movie too. Have tough times led you to become a Thrifty Diva?
I certainly didn’t expect this drama. Falling in love seemed easy enough. We were compatible, crazy about each other, and had the same goals and beliefs. And after I had spent 7 years suffering from debilitating pain from an incurable illness, to finally have my health improving and to find love, I thought my life had finally turned around. If I only knew…
My husband had a hard time with his parents, they didn’t want to let go of their youngest even though he was in his mid-20s. They did not approve of our marriage. He then moved 1400 miles away to establish his independence and seek out a career. Not long after we ran off and got married without them even knowing. Let’s just say when we did call them and told them the news the next few years were rocky. Thank goodness for the distance!
Newlywed bliss is a myth. As if the family drama were not stressful enough, my husband’s job was cut and I was struggling to find one after moving. We got by on what work we could find, but we were definitely the working poor. We couldn’t even afford health insurance.
