Extreme couponing

okay so i watched that show extreme coupon and I see them save thousands of dollars. I was thinking wouldn`t it be great not to spend alot on food. I tried a couple of newspaper but I always end up with the coupons I dont wan`t or very little coupons.In the end I only end up saving a little on my bill. Are there any moms who are excellent at extreme couponing if so please tell me all your secrets. Im tired of not eatting good

  • I extreme coupon on stockpile items, like toothpaste, brushes, deo, shamp, cond, soap, b.washes, razors, ect. so i can have all that extra $ for food, because there aren't many coupons out for the food that my family eats.

    and i buy my Qs that I paticularly want, I don't waste $ on newspapers with alot of them that I won't use. I get them on ebay, and other sites like that.

    it takes a while and each store has specific rules you must abide by and each coupon states specifics as well. Some stores have their own promotions that you can mix w/ coupons, like riteaid, walgreens and cvs.

    Now that I said I "extreme" on what i do, its not really- it is just for items we will use with a few months, to me the "extreme" we see on TV boards into hoarding, and that is not what I do.

  • some local grocery stores will put hundreds of coupons on their sites for you to print.And if they have a store card some will let you load them coupons right on your card!!!Hit up the stores that will double or triple to get more out of your coupons!!
