Many people have used coupons from time to time, but where you will see the most significant savings to your grocery bill is when you start with the items already on sale for that week and use the coupons to bring the already low prices even lower.
Most people don't realize that grocery store run on a fairly regular rotation just as a yearly calender. By following the items that are already on sale and stocking up on enough products to get you to the next sale you are sure to save your family hundreds each month.
Remember couponing does take some practice and you may not see the savings right away. When you're just starting to coupon $30.00 dollars saved on a single trip is great. In now time you'll be saving more than your spending on a regular basis.
