Save money on groceries
Become an 'extreme couponer'
The average manufacturer's coupon is now worth $1.20, according to food marketing analyst Phil Lempert of SupermarketGuru.com. That's a nice amount, but serious savers combine these coupons with in-store coupons and sales.
Sites like CouponMom.com (free) and TheGroceryGame.com ($10 for eight weeks) offer sales-tracking services for most states and major grocery stores. They'll tell you which items are on rock-bottom sale and alert you to manufacturers' coupons you can use. Manufacturers' coupons are in most Sunday newspapers and at sites like Coupons.com and Redplum.com.
