I am in Colorado visiting family, so I didn’t do a lot of shopping this week.  I really just wanted to teach a relative about couponing.  She was interested that I could save so much money!  However, she wasn’t interested in doing it herself since her husband makes quite a bit of money.  That got me to thinking, would I coupon if I didn’t have to?  Absolutely!  No matter how much money we make, I couldn’t stand to pay retail again!  Paying for toothpaste, deodorant, gum again?  No way!

What about you?  Would you stop couponing if money were no object?
