'Ever hear this piece of investment advice, “You’ve got to spend money to make money”?'

That is not investment advice; that is business advice.

Investments are devices for growing money. Money spent/given to the grocer cannot grow for you.

Saving, putting money in the bank or in an ACTUAL investment, is saving. What, pray tell, are you investing in when you burn your time up chasing after coupons? One should hope that their investments appreciate; consumer goods never appreciate.

If couponing were good business and made you money, why aren't more couponers rich?

@ SillyRabbit
My wife spends about 2 hours a week looking for and using coupons and she saves around 80% on the grocery bill.
So instead of spending $150 a week we spend 30 and are able to stock pile products (a lot of the time for free).
That extra 120 a week goes into savings so yes couponing is an investment or a great way to save money.
Try it. It is super easy and you get good products for a great price.

Maybe I'll try it just once.

But please, couponing is not saving nor is it an investment. It may provide you with the non-spent money to put into savings, but until you put it there and leave it there, you are not saving anything.

a quick glance at the maceys ad and searching coupons you can save around 25 dollars this week with coupons and the items on sale.
Like my wife and I that 25 dollar savings goes to either another bill or into savings.
Any dollar you save will add to you overall assets as long as you don't waste it.
That is an investment and contribution to savings.
I have a house payment, tithing, mortgage, horses, and hobbies with an average job and I invest and save around 50% of my take home income because of deal shopping and coupons.
Use them it is free money.
Like nabisco crackers this week with a printable coupon and be on 49 cents a box.

I have a list of online ads that I go through mostly for the fruits and vegetables. Like you here people say it's to expensive to eat healthy but doing this I always get tons of fruits and vegetables for super cheap. My favorite is summer time when you can get watermellon for 19 cents a pound.

Yes the online coupons are great.
