What tips and help can you give to other moms? I've heard of extreme couponing, and couponing in general that really help to save, yet I never save anywhere near what I see lots of other moms saving.

Know your store policy, do they double coupons up to a certain amount or on certain days, do they accept coupons for getting items free

Look into reward programs like CVS and Walgreens where you can get additional savings and sale price items

Shop at stores that allow you to use two coupons on one item.  One mfg coupon and one store coupon (Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc)

Email vendors directly and ask for coupons via snail mail

Trade coupons with friends and family

You usually save more by buying items when they're on sale and not when you actually need them.  Buying the smallest and using two coupons (one store and one mfg) usually saves me the most

Know which items go on sale and when.  Stock up on tape and pencils/pens during back to school, etc
