::Get LOTS of coupons.
::I get 3 sets, more when possible. You can get them from family, neighbors, friends, or co-workers.
::Organize Sunday coupon inserts by date in file folders or cut them out and keep them in baseball card holders in a binder in categories. That is my favorite method because I can take them to the store with me easily without having to worry about cutting them out there or looking for them.
::Stock up on items you use when they are a good price (3-6 month supply if possible)Take advantage of double coupons (Bashas, Safeway, and Frys) Albertson's does NOT double coupons.Stack store coupons with manufacturer coupons. (Albertson's will accept competitors store coupons) You also don't need a club card at their store.Price match at Wal-Mart for one-stop shopping if your coupon does not need to be doubled (say it is already for $1.00 off) Remember, Wal-Mart does not double coupons or match "special" sales and they also do not let you redeem buy one get one coupons, either. (At least my Wal-Mart won't)Don't be brand loyal (but you can still usually get name brand for cheaper than generic brands!)
