She teaches several “no-nos” when it comes to couponing, including taking peel-off coupons from products in stores shoppers aren’t buying and taking coupons out of other newspapers in the rack.“There are a lot of bad behaviors in couponing. The reason some of the bad behaviors happen is (couponers) don’t understand what they are doing negatively affects the coupon community,” she said. “Some don’t know what they are doing is a no-no. I’m hoping by sharing information, they will learn to back off.”Jennise is a columnist for the Killeen Daily Herald on ethical couponing and budgeting. Be sure to read her column.
