A new Bham couponer? Welcome aboard
Like Rose said, pick one store. Learn it inside and out. Aim low to start, 20-30% off your bill. It takes time to build a stockpile, and the stockpile is what lets you pass on the less than stellar deals in time, but for now, you most likely still have to buy staples that a lot of us have oodles of already. Over time, you'll be able to cut your grocery bill (or your HBA bill, whether you choose a drugstore or a grocery store first) back much more than that, but it's gonna be a work in progress for a while.
The articles and blog posts and instagram pics are all only part of the picture. For every super sweet transaction like that, there are plenty of sub-optimal ones. For example, I paid full price for Sudafed this week. Didn't even have a coupon on me

General comment -- posters share deals or crow triumphant transactions of 98% discounts or FREE items or money making transactions. Those are great but they are not the majority of anyones retail purchases.
If you are just starting out, try for a more reasonable goal -- like I am going to save 30% off my groceries. It takes time to build up a coupon supply and a full pantry.

Do you have a computer & printer? If the coupon insert in your newspaper seems less than the previews then maybe you need to scroll through the printables thread here on the sd forum & print mqs for the stuff your family needs or likes.
But do not do that until you get the coupon polucy for your local store. You are going to feel silly if your store does not accept home printed coupons or limits them differently than newspaper coupons or blinkie/ tearpad mqs.

Newbie on Coupoing
I am trying to learn how to coupon but I am feeling very overwhelmed and I am not sure where to begin. I have read many different articles about how to coupon but I think I need someone to show me step by step. I would love and appreciate any help that I can get!

Per purchase means "per item that the coupon matches". The wording "per customer" is then redundant but unfortunately it is read/interpreted as "one per transaction" by many cashiers/employees. My advice would be to use multiple coupons per transaction unless someone stops you. (Pick good cashiers.) I have found it sometimes difficult to fight on this one.

|amystri||Can someone tell me what "Limit 1 coupon per customer per purchase" means? I read this as only being able to use 1 coupon for the entire transaction so if I want to use another coupon I would have to do a second transaction... sound right?|

You can keep this at the top of your list by clicking on "thread tools" at the upper right hand side and click on "sticky this thread". You can do this for any thread that you want to show for you at the top all the time.
