My son is now 8 months old, after watching all the segments on tv recently & TLC new show Extreme Couponing, it has now come to my attention I can save a crazy amount of money! As my husband is in business with his father I am fortunate enough to be able to stay home, however I now feel it is possible to save money, rather than my normal outrage grocery shopping, then why not! I am completely foreign to the entire process, no idea where to start, or how to accomplish this goal! So I am asking for any tips, websites, books, advice, even do's dont's and how to's! Thank you so much! Any mentors/friends are very much welcome!

Get to know your stores coupon policies. Look at your ads for places like drugstores chains. Most people think of these places as out of their price range but when you combine sales and coupons a lot of times you can walk out with $100 worth of merchendise 20 or 30 dollars.
Be practical about your stockpile. Things go on sale about every 8 to 12 weeks, so if you base your shopping around that that how you get you biggest savings. One of my favorite websites is she is really nice and has lots of great ways to save money in al aspects of life. Also type in your search engine money saving ideas with coupons and you will get an explosion of information.
