Coupons That I Need Vs Coupons That I Have

OK the latest graphjam made me laugh a little bit, so I thought I’d share.

True? Not true??

    You know, I think it's true. I find myself buying things often just because I have a coupon (even if it's for 50 cents off). They are things that I don't really need and I would not purchase otherwise. So I think companies have a good strategy that way to make you buy stuff.

    I think the "save lots of money" circle should be smaller since most items purchased with coupons aren't needed but we think we should buy them because it looks like a bargain since we have a coupon. In the end we aren't really "saving" any money.

    there should be one that says "found coupon after paying full price!!"

    Great diagram! I'm proud to be frugal but rarely use coupons for just the same reasons!

    I use coupons all the time. And I save alot of money with them. Sometimes I'll even walk up and down the grocery store aisles just looking for coupons. I always take a few of each if it is something I'll use, then I wait until it comes on sale. With the sale price and the coupon off that I can save 20-30% off the bill.

What do you think?
