How?? Why?? Please explain!

I go onto some of the coupon sites and everything, and I would love to get the deals where you stack coupons and get free stuff. My bff's BIL is a SAHD (enough acronyms for you?) and he gets tons of free stuff. He has a stockpiled basement, and -- this is the part I love-- they have an entire set of shelves allocated for the free stuff they don't need, and it all goes to charity.
For fun, a few times each year the family takes an entire minivan full of toothpaste, floss, maxipads, cereal, etc to the mission and donates it, and it's all stuff they got for free.

I don't have the time to hardcore do it right now. I do clip coupons and if I catch wind of a good stacking opportunity, I will do it, but that's the extent of it for now.

I coupon, but my stores aren't as good as the ones on the Extreme Couponing show. They don't double them and won't stack (store coupon plus item coupon at the same time).

Still, for the last two weeks I've saved $90 each week on my groceries using coupons and store promotions. That and I am up to 70cents a gallon off of gas at my Sunoco.

I use the coupons from the Sunday paper and make my list against the store sale pages.

I don't buy in bulk, but will buy a two for deal since I have an extra fridge and freezer.

There was a guy on the show that donated a lot of his free stuff too.
 
How nice!

I saved a few $$ last week with the buy 1 get 1 free deals- and with the few coupons that I used I ended up saving about $20. I didn't need many groceries though. LOL
