Coupons may seem like yesterday's news, but they're a no-brainer when it comes to saving money on your grocery bill. So pick up a Sunday paper, grab some scissors and get to work. Many stores offer double coupons on certain days, so try to plan your shopping day around this. If you forget to clip coupons, pick up a store flyer on your way in to see what's on special that day. Most grocery stores have additional items on special that are clearly marked throughout the store. And be on the lookout for "buy one, get one free" coupons for the ultimate savings.

Did you know? If you find coupons for items that you frequently use, you can buy more papers and clip additional coupons for maximum savings. Most coupons will state if there's a limit.
