"A large portion of the average household budget is comprised of food, gasoline, and of course your utilities and your rent,” Dr. Greg George, an economics professor from Middle Georgia State College, said. “If you're going to save money, there's not a lot of places you can do it."

George agrees it is important to look for savings wherever you can, but warns smart shoppers make some common mistakes when it comes to couponing.

"It will encourage people to buy things they don't really need,” George said. “You got to be careful not to just save as much as you possibly can. You have to buy things that you would buy anyways and hope to find a coupon that helps you out with that."
