couponing like a pro

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 10:06 AM
With my new monthly meal plan idea I've noticed that if I'm trying to save money by not going to the store everyday then I should also look into coupons. I watch Extreme Couponing but I never really understood how those people save that much money.

I was recently talking to a friend and she was telling me how she coupons and might start a couponing class so I am definitely planning on being her 1st student. Before she has time to teach me though, I've been trying to teach myself. Here in Florida it's harder to coupon since stores won't double the coupon amount but that doesn't mean you can't save money, it's just more of a challenge.
There are tons of places online and even more coupon blogs to check out to find lots of deals and coupons around. Coupon Codes is a great resource to check out, especially if you're in Canada.

Yesterday I went shopping and usually I am happy to save $1 or $2 but I saved $25 yesterday! John was so happy to see our receipt that now he always wants me to find coupons.
I have every intention to clip as many coupons as I can to save as much as I can for my family. Discounts like Buy one Get one Free at Publix are always great especially if I can find a coupon on top of that price so I'll be looking out for those.

So please, give me some advice on couponing, point me in the right direction to the coupon blogs and sites you use!
