In world 1-1, if you stay in the pipe area that leads to the third star coin, you won't be crushed. Instead, it will lead you to an area with a ton of coins and 3 1-up hidden blocks (they are where there are missing coins)

I get my lives (and mushrooms) stocked up in world 6. in the mushroom bonus place (where you run into the bullets on the map). If you collect all of the blue mushroom balls without killing any bullets you get 3 mushrooms and 3 lives each time.

Another way: on World 1-3 you can pick up the Venus fire trap or his fireballs using Yoshi. Throw it at a bunch on enemies to get some extra lives.
