I don't think so most of the time. I use coupons when it is something I specifically want, but otherwise, generic is almost always cheaper. What about you?

Do coupons REALLY save you money over buying store brand?
Yep, if you can wait and use your coupon with a sale, I usally find product cheaper than store brand. And one of things I like about shopping a 'real grocery store' as opposed to Walmart is I find alot of thier name brand products become loss leaders and become CHEAPER than a Walmart price or a store brand.
I think it depends on the situation and that you need to check the prices on an item by item basis. I do agree that I'd rather go to Aldi's and buy my staples there. Then I don't need to hassle with clipping, sorting and remembering to use my coupons. I am not great about doing that. I mostly shop at Aldi's and at a local store that has great prices on meat and produce. Between those two places, I cut my grocery bill by at least a third.
