    My rules:
    1) don`t buy unnecessary stuff! (most important)
    2) NEVER go hungry for groceries (really important)
    3) Make bigger shoppings, but seldom
    Optional:
    Make grocery list for a whole week (with planning meals - but it`s hardcore edition of savings :D )
    BONUS:
    *NEVER LET your fiance/gf/so to take your card or let her "buy what you want"*

    I am a coupon gal.
    Sometimes I purchase $1200. Worth of groceries for 20 or 30 bucks!

    I have a large family so I had to learn about couponing a long time ago.
    It's quite exhilarating when you see the receipt going lower instead of higher.
    On average, for a family of 10 and sometimes more ( because I do foster care) I average approximately $50.00 a week for groceries. Which is really good considering that in my family, I have a kiddo that is allergic to milk protein. (So nothing baked with milk) and a couple of vegetarians, including myself.
    It is a lot of work though. :)

    I am in the U.S. I am not one of those crazies you see on TV. I am just patient.
    I collect and save the coupons then use them at the same time that there is a sale. Simple.
