    It would really be nice to save like you do.  However, there is so much of the processed foods we cannot eat, and a lot of the coupons are for, you guessed it!  processed food.  Grrr. I wish there were coupons for minimally processed meats, and for veggies, and the healthy things.
    Just a little frustrating.
