A Frank Frugal Chick Talk

I’m going to take a moment and peel back the mysterious veil of bloggerhood to get your opinion.

I LOVE asking you guys what it is that you want.   I feel like my whole job is to find out what you want, find it on sale and tell you where to get it.  Sometimes it’s a SUPER frustrating job but every time I find an incredible deal I can’t wait to tell you.  It’s a blogger rush.

About once a year I ask you what you want more of on this site (usually in December).  Overwhelmingly you tell me “printable coupons” and “free books.”

Since I have all these fun tools to see what you think is interesting on my site I can tell you right now- less than 1% of you print coupons and I am curious why.

So I was hoping you could just answer two quick questions for me to help me on this journey.  I am thinking one of the reasons is that I am not showing you the prices for the stores where you actually grocery shop.  So if you can take a second and answer the questions for me below it would be super helpful!

    Shan- create a couponing e-mail address and you won’t ever have issues with that. Just a separate e-mail where all your coupon stuff can go.

    Have received copious amounts of spam e-mails since trying to download a coupon. Prior to the coupon download, I received one or two spam e-mails a week.

    Many times I am using my iPad and,therefore, have to go off of your site to the coupons.com app to print the coupons since the coupons won’t print through Safari..

    Oh… And sometimes I forget to go through your site to get to the printable coupon website!

    I print some coupons but like kat there aren’t very many coupons for whole foods. I do take advantage of some really good deals (free or close to free) that require printable coupons. Also, I have one laptop that is hardly connected to the printer so it’s a pain to print coupons (I need a wireless printer!). Thanks for all you do! And I loved taking your coupon class… I learned so much!

    I see your blog on my breaks at work, I cannot print.
    Once home I just forget.

    A after work reminder of hot coupons would help. I usually buy a paper twice a month.

    I cut way back on the coupons when we switched to whole food. Sometimes I can find milk (horizon organic), eggs or meat coupons but usually I stick to household goods and personal care. I also use the Vons club (Safeway brand out here in southern CA) app that clips coupons for you and their policy is that you cannot use an e coupon and printed coupon on the same item.

    IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO GO INTO FOOD LION FOR AN OLDER CITIZEN WITH REALLY BAD ARTHRITIS AND ON A FIXED INCOME TO GO INTO SOME PLACE SMALLER TO GET GROCERIES.
    I LOVE WATCHING YOU ON WEEKENDS WITH JOE AND JULIE AND FOLLOWING YOU ON FACEBOOK!
