How do you save money at the grocery store? Coupons?

Last week I took my Mother for a doctor appointment and while in the waiting room, saw an episode of Extreme Couponing. Sure, the people saved money, but I do not need 50 boxes of laundry detergent!

I do not use too many coupons, generally the coupons I find are not for items/brands I usually use. I tend to go for in-store specials, 10 for $10, that sort of thing. I also look at the Manager Special section of the meat department, the meat that is nearing expiration, that I will cook within a day (I stay away from the poultry, though). I also buy seasonal produce to save money.

What do you do to save money at the grocery store?
