Do you clip and use coupons when shopping?

Yippers, I'm a big coupon clipper. I don't end up using half the ones I clip, but sometimes they can be really good. I've learned to only use the ones for stuff I buy anyway or really want to try, otherwise I just end up spending money on something I didn't actually want or need.
I won't buy a certain brand just because I've got a coupon, but I will keep a coupon for something I'm likely to buy, or something I use all the time.
I also tend to just clip the ones that are 50 cents or more. I also don't clip anything that wants me to buy an unusual quantity (buy three, save 35 cents!!). I end up chucking a lot of what I clip, but a buck or two here and there doesn't hurt
