How much is worth clipping?

We have all heard someone say, "It's just worth it to clip coupons."  Couponers know this is simply NOT true!  However, coupon amounts vary greatly.  I am curious to know -
What amount do you think is worth clipping or printing?
For me, the general rule is $.50.  I rarely clip or print a coupon less than this amount.  There are one availble right now for $.30 off 2 Pilsubury products on - I just don't think this is worth the ink to print it or my time to clip and file even if it is doubled.  (Plus, there is sure to be a higher value coupon out there somewhere.) 
This is not a hard and fast rule.  A low value coupon used on a low price item could equal a freebie.  And I love freebies!  For instance, $.30 off of a candy bar used at a store that doubles, or paired with a sale, will probably give you free candy - well worth the clip.

What do you think?
