Just curious how and where everyone learned to coupon?

I've been reading little tips here and there from friends and am starting to understand the process. Whille I've started saving much more, I'm interested in graduating from "I use coupons" to "I get most of my stuff for free" status. :smileytongue:

Did you take a class, have a "tutoring" session with a friend, figure it out on your own? Any tutorials out there that you recommend?

I'm still on the basic using-coupons-to-save-a-few-dollars-at-the-grocery-store... but I've got a friend who works pretty hard at getting big deals and gift cards and such that I'm starting to bug for advice.

My sister-in-law started couponing 2 months before me and she was really the one who showed me the basics. After that I did LOTS of reading and LOTS of trial and error. It takes very little time to get the hang of it.

Well I learnt from a website called smart canucks... reading the brags on that forum has really helped! and self taught other than that!
