Whatever you do, do NOT get in the check-out line behind this kind of shopper.

Hard-core couponers are in it to win it — for free, if at all humanly possible.

It is almost a job within itself. To maximize your savings, you would need to join the 'clubs' of the places you frequently shop at, make a menu around the coupons available and really focus on how to combine coupons at a variety of stores. You need to subscribe to your local newspaper, have a good printer and use coupon texting as well.

We had someone at work (I work for a newspaper) to give it a go and she pulled off a fantastic shopping trip. So, I know it can be done, but again, it takes work and not a scatter shot attempt.

I just use coupons and get freebies casually and probably save at least a couple of hundred dollars a month.

Well, that is even great, glory. I am lucky if I save fifty dollars a month, but then I really only use the coupons that are pretty much thrust on me. I think it's a great idea, though.

I would love to know where people get coupons valued under $1. My stores double to 99 cents only, but we only get $1 off coupons, and usually for 2 or more items.

I tried looking on a coupon site, but there seems to be many coupons like the ones in my paper.

Any ideas?

*I do realize different parts of the country may give different values.
