Have you ever watched the Extreme Couponing show on TV and wondered how the contestants get so many freebies when shopping with coupons?

You don't need to be an extreme couponer to get the same great deals on groceries, beauty products and household items.

Throughout the last two years, I have taken my couponing to the next level and will share some simple tips on how I make the most of it when shopping with coupons.

If you use these tips, you will begin building your grocery stockpile in no time!2

1. Coupon Stacking

If you want to save the most money when shopping with coupons, you need to learn a practice known as "coupon stacking." All the big couponing gurus out there stack coupons to get free and almost-free items every week.

What does this mean?

Most major grocery store chains and discount retailers allow customers to use one manufacturer's coupon and one store coupon together when buying an item.

Manufacturer's coupons typically display the words "manufacturer coupon" somewhere on the face of the coupon.2

2. BOGO

I love "Buy One, Get One Free" deals because most grocery stores ring up each item at half price.2

This means you can use a coupon for each half-priced item.

If you only have one coupon for that particular product, you can buy just one item and still get charged only half price for it.

So, not only is the item on sale for 50% off, but on top of that, you can use your coupon.

I can't tell you how many amazing deals I've found this way.

3. Double Coupons

Double coupons are another awesome way to save a boatload of money.

Many grocery store chains double all manufacturer's coupons up to a certain face value, usually 99 cents.

So, if you have a 99 cent coupon, you will get $1.98 off that item.

I do the bulk of my grocery shopping at stores that double coupons every day because it saves so much money.

Some grocery chains offer special triple coupon days, as well.

One store, in particular, offers "Super Doubles" for one week every two months or so, which means all coupons with a face value of up to $2.00 will be doubled!
