We do the "extreme couponing" periodically, or should I say when time permits which isn't often considering two working parents with 5 kids, baseball, soccer, cubscouts, karate, camp, school, homework, etc....
Couponmom.com is a great resource. You pick your location and store and the site will tell you where to find the coupons and match them with sale items at the store you selected. You can select items that you want and print a shopping list based on your selections. ACME in our are doubles coupons up to $.99, sometimes we have $.50 coupons for items that are 10 for 10 and end up getting them for free. Pasta, sauce and soup are very good for that. Check the store's coupon policy and verify it with a manager before you go in. Make sure to get their name and schedule so you can shop when that manager is on duty. Call them out on it if the sale rings differently than the store's coupon policy. We've gotten all kinds of stuff free, pasta, sauce, soup, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap, cereal and lots of other goodies. If it's not shelf stable you can save your food budget for items that are.
Pasta and cereal seem to keep exceptionally well when vacuum sealed with one of those home use sealing devices. You can buy one with the money you saved couponing :) Ours cost about $125 from Target and works REALLY well. We also make our own pasta and that stores well too in vac sealed bags.
Hope that was informative!
ACME/Albertson's and Shoprite in my area will double coupons automatically
