A lot of the extreme couponers say they won't buy anything that doesn't have a coupon. Well, that's not my policy. I think that's unrealistic. Tonight I went to the grocery store and bought several things without coupons - fresh produce, steak and fresh bread from the bakery. While I've seen coupons for these things, they are few and far between, and I happen to have none of them now.
One reason I coupon on so many items is so that I am able to splurge on the non-coupon items that my family loves.
Of course there are some items that I do not ever anticipate buying again without a coupon, including most personal care products, and thanks to my stockpile I shouldn't have to!
