    I was at Fresh Co the other day and I was using a reasonable amount of coupons, maybe 15 ish and it was basically one per type of food, no multiple buys. I also did a bit of price matching. Most of the cashiers know me since this has been my main grocery location for years (used to be Price Chopper). This cashier was very polite and extremely thorough when checking over the coupons. She looked a little worn out after everything was done. I laughed and said " I bet this is the most coupons you have had to deal with today" She said, "this is the most coupons I have EVER had to do" She has worked there for quite awhile now and the store is always busy. I have a feeling that I am the crazy coupon lady now because I don't think they deal with a lot of coupons there. I hope they don't start dreading me in their line I am always super organized and friendly so I hope that helps.

    LOL

    I was called that in a grocery store by a customer who was quite sarcastict. He was standing in line behind me. He caused a bit of a stir and people stood and watched. I had quite a few coupons and everything I bought was on sale.
    After I was done I waited at the till and watched his sale complete and then holding my receipt I stated
    "I saved over 55% on my bill! What did you save?" And the other customers watching had a chuckle.
    One of those customers even approached me to ask how I can help her family get started.

    To me a crazy coupon lady is the lady that steals all the pads and gors throught all the recycling bins and news papers in lobbys. NOT someone that saves money atbthe grocery store.

    Welcome to the club.

    The lady behind me today was quite impressed with my sales/coupon matchup she kept looking at the screen and the total lowering. It wasn't even a huge trip (10 items which were $46 retail full price for $12 after sales and coupons)

    The cashiers at my local Walmart and pharmacies know me when I walk in; they know I am there because I have coupons that will make their sale items free for me. My sisters call me the Extreme Couponer. I don't mind it because I help them scope out the great deals and get them so much free stuff. With kids and families, we all need to save as much as we can. There is no shame to what we do.

    The store staff all know me and love that I am co-operative and organized in my price-matching and couponing.
    I view these buying interactions as a co-operative effort to save me money.
    I want everyone to have a good time.

    Half the time, customers or staff ask me for tips.
    I rarely get any hassles.

    Thanks I am getting better at not caring what others think too. I used to feel nervous to approach the cash with a lot of coupons but not so much anymore. Just today I was at WM getting some free French's mustard, cheap Kraft dressing and some other price matching. I had three different people pack up their things and leave. It was slow because the cashier was a young guy who was fairly new. I actually had to walk him through entering the coupons LOL. This one lady made a big scene and started throwing her stuff into her cart. It didn't phase me one bit. I actually kind of felt embarrassed for HER because she was acting like a spoiled child I saved a lot of money today and I was proud!
