How to be an extreme couponer

When it comes to shopping, Judy Pezza, of New Jersey, is what many would call extreme. Most people come to the grocery store with a list. She comes with a two sided binder of coupons.

"This is food on this side and then the other side is health and beauty," Pezza says.

Judy says people look at her like she's nuts but she says she's on a mission to save her family thousands of dollars a year on groceries and you can do it too.

"Once you get the hang of it it's easier," Pezza says. "At first it's a little overwhelming."

Pezza says rule No. 1 is: Don't just rely on the in-store sales; be a smart shopper.

"A lot of stores will put signs on the end caps saying buy one get one free but the price of the first one is double what it would usually be," Pezza says. "So you're really not getting an amazing deal unless you have a coupon. So you have to be careful of that. Just study the ads. They are your friend."

You can save on more than just food.

"A product like feminine products, these could be on sale but you might do better if you got to promotional codes.com and when you get to the checkout there will always be a code to put in the box," Peeza says.

If you have allergies or a special diet, don't worry there's a coupon for that, too.

"There are specific websites you can go to that have all organic and gluten free," Pezza says. "All those all natural coupons."

For those of us who just don't have time search the web for deals or sit and clip coupons, some stores even have special gadgets to help you save. Like this device at Stop and Shop called Scanit.

"Scanit is used with the stop and shop loyalty card," says Arelene Putterman of Stop and Shop. "When you're coming into the store what you will see on the scanner unit is some cost saving exclusive offers."

Either way you choose to claim your savings, Pezza says whatever you're buying there's sure to be a coupon for it.

"A free coupon. It's for a free product. This is what I call coupon angels. Someone left it," Pezza says. "They knew I was coming so I'm getting me some sauce, free!"
