A clip here and a snip there can pay off in the long run. Just ask Susan Lee of Lebanon.
Lee said she has been clipping coupons for about 40 years, starting when she was a stay-at-home mom living in Lexington.
She said she has never been an extreme couponer, but she estimated that she saved more than $1,000 a year (on the low end) when she was raising her children.
"The people that stockpile can save a whole lot more than that," she added.
