I know you saw the show "Extreme Couponers" on TLC, I love that show I'm hoping to coupon like the ladies on tv because that's some serious savings.

I'm just like for some moms who loves to save and coupons as well I just want some tips and stuff so I can get better

Well for starters, stop watching that show!  :)  No seriously. It is called "extreme" for a reason and it is totally unreaslistic and nearly impossible.

On the flip side, you can do a lot to reduce your bduget before you become a crazy couponer. If you want all of my best tips, I've compiled them here: How To Lower Your Grocery Budget Without Using Coupons. Master these, and then add coupons, and you can drastically reduce your grocery budget.

I also do not think that going the "extreme" route is a good thing at all..some of those people are just greedy or have an addiction or illness

anyway I like to use coupons to save on things I am already buying

you can find online sites that do match ups for the stores you shop that will help you to manage it

get a sunday paper, printer and make your list from the store sales paper

use some apps and sites to get cash or rewards back also

I get the sunday paper every wk. when i get time i look at the coupons inside and if they are really good then i get a couple more. there are also different sunday papers and some give more coupons. i look at what is on sell and make a list of what i need. then i compare the list to what is on sell along with the coupons i use. its not hard and dont beat urself up becuz any money u save even 5.00 is that much for gas or something else u need.

I agree w. the greedy part but I'm just try to save getting the sunday's paper sounds simple enough and making a list of the things I need is something I need to start doing ............. Thank you all for helping

I think that the show is unrealistic. but, I have found some good ways, to save money. I use coupons and I do occasional dumpster diving. and the dumpster diving has become so successful, that I probably won't have to pay for anything except my regular bills.

That show is  fake.Stores dont let you get  100's of one product like that

If you see blinkies in the stores grab them. Often that product is going on sale soon.Always get  at least 2 of the papers.That way when a product is bogo you can use 2 coupons. Look through all grocery ads and  then coupons to match. In fl wlamrt will pm at their prices so I get some great deals. Dollar general is another great store.Right  now they have tressme shampoo/conditoner for an amazing deal. They are $3.50 each. Buy 2 then the register will automatically deduct $2/In last sundays paper were coupons for 2/1 bottle. Use 2 coupons. It comes to $1,33 for 2 bottles

I think that show is way over the top.  I do see women in the gro store with their notebooks etc....I use coupons and shop for things on sale but some of those women are just greedy to me. 

The best advice for coupons is to clip them....watch the sales....use them on things you use and watch to see if any of the stores near you do double or triple coupons days.  Good luck!!  :)
