Parents -- you don't have to break the bank when shopping for school supplies. In many cases, you won't have to spend any money at all.

Have you heard of extreme couponing? We spent time with an Irondequoit mother of three who is a couponing queen. Pam runs the blog, Extreme Couponing Mommy. She says it doesn't take an expert to walk away with free items but it does take patience and a bit of time.

She recommends before you do any shopping to check a store’s website first because many do the work for you -- offering easy to find online coupons that you can print out at home before you go.
