Coupons!

I never paid much attention to coupons printed on the inserts of the News Papers, the products that the coupons were for seem almost always too much money for us. About 2 weeks ago my sister-in-law mentioned Extreme Couponing show from TLC http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/extreme-couponing and said it was pretty interesting. I don't have cable or dish, however I found some of the videos on TLC web site. Wow, those people really had it all figured out. Turns out you can use coupons for any product and save money if you know HOW to do it. You need to find a right sale in the store that preferably doubles manufacturer's coupons and has store coupons that can be combined for the same item. If you find something like that, you hit the Jackpot!
Since my grocery bills lately seem to get bigger and bigger with the growing prices, I decided to give that couponing business a try. The question is, other than News Papers, where so you find reliable coupons? Here are some sites that were most helpful to me:
http://www.totallytarget.com/
http://hunt4freebies.com/coupons/
These guys are constantly on alert for new deals and publish each of them as soon as they are available.
The site http://www.weusecoupons.com/  has free virtual classes, that explain you in detail how to use coupons, how to organize them, which store doubles coupons and when, etc. They got it all.
I am going to try coupons for 3 months and see if I really so save money and how much. I will report back with the results.
