Coupon Mama's got some time?

I was just informed of extreme coupons TV show... OMG I am AMAZED!! I have to ask WHERE you all get these coupons come from!? Out papers don't have that much in them and what I have seen on the internet (yall welcome to message me with other ideas) is stuff that I don't need or use, or i could get it cheaper w/o the coupon (ex. toilet bowl cleaner).. I am looking for FOOD coupons, meats, fruits, veggies stuff that doesn't come in a box.

  • You have to stack the coupons (I think that's what it's called). If you get a manufacturers coupon with a store coupon and you hit a sale on that particular item, then you can get a lot off of whatever items you get. There are also coupon doubling where they'll give you double the coupon up to a certain amount. I've not figured out the math out yet.
    Usually meats and fresh produce don't have coupons. Sorry. I've seen some for Driscol brand strawberries and random packaged items like.

  • Hah, that just confused the crap out of me a little bit. But, apparently my area SUCKS because I have a total of 8 coupons in my immediate area, but if i go 50 miles i have 11 coupons available...... I think i'll need to find another way to do it!

  • I purchase the things that are on sale or b1g1 with coupons, so it doubles my savings. Our town is little, so we too are limited to the amount of coupons/places to shop, and no one in our area doubles coupons! I usually get my coupons from coupons.com or from our sunday paper, and since my mom, and grandmother live within the area, we get their sunday papers w/ coupons also, hope that helps a bit.
