EXCERPT: Elisabeth Leamy's 'Save Big'

How BIG are our SAVINGS?

How much can you save through Creative Couponing, our third Guerilla Grocery Shopping weapon? Man, this is gonna be great! I can't wait to tell you! Once again, I assembled a balanced list of 50 products from every category that that a typical American family of four purchases regularly. Every product had an accompanying coupon. The "before" price was $191. The "after" price was --get this-- $39! Now, check out the yearly savings:
Creative Couponing Annual Savings
Regular price: $9,932/year
Price using coupons: $2,028/year
BIG SAVINGS= $7,904/year

$7,904! Folks, that is quite simply a life-changing amount of savings! Price-matching alone saved us 44-percent. Stockpiling ratcheted the game up to 54-percent. By adding Creative Couponing as the final layer of savings we have reached an 80-percent discount. 80-percent! $7,904 is the kind of savings that will have you on your way to other BIG moves like paying cash for a car or making a substantial down payment on a house.

BIG TIPS Don't use your coupons right away. Wait until you can do a coupon combo.
Use CouponMom.com to match coupons to stores sales.
Find out which stores in your area double or triple coupons.
Use store coupons and manufacturer coupons together.
Print Target coupons from other websites if Target has taken them down.
Hand X off of Y coupons to the cashier first.
