If you want to save money by conserving on overgrips, and you only need 1/2 of the grip covered, and you want to build up the size of the grip, overlap the overgrip by 1/2 as you wrap it. This doubles the thickness of the overgrip and saves on the second grip that you would normally use to build up the grip size.
