Never Pay Full Price Again

As the weekly deals are posted at blogs on-line (I’ll post links to all of the blogs that I follow below) I cut and paste in Microsoft Word the deals that work for me. I begin by choosing the items that are free or under a dollar at each store. I separate my list by stores. Next, I print coupons if the links are included or from the coupon bar on my blog. Then I begin matching what’s on sale with coupons from my coupon stash. There are times when a coupon is listed by another blogger and it turns out I don’t have it. Then there are times when I have a better coupon than the one listed. I calculate my final cost and write it beside/below each item.

Examples Below

-$1 off Country Crock Spread printable (Food Lion)

Next, I look through my weekly circular. When I see something that I think I might have a coupon for I put a mark like a star, the letter (C) for coupon or ??? if I’m not sure if I have a coupon. Sometimes while I’m marking or later I go through the circular looking only at the marked items and take out my coupons for each store. I place the coupons in each store envelope as demonstrated in this post.

Finally, I print my list from Micorsoft and add any additonal items that I need such as meat and produce.

When shopping at multiple stores use your coupons at stores that allow stacking, doubling and tripling of coupons. These stores include:

*Publix~Doubles manf. coupons $0.50 and below, so a $0.50 is worth $1.00 off
They also allow using 2 coupons per product (1 store & 1 Manf. Q)
They also take competitor Q

*Bi-Lo~Doubles manf. coupons $0.60 and below, so a $0.60 is worth $1.20 off
They also allow using 2 coupons per product (1 store & 1 Manf. Q)

*Kroger~Doubles manf. coupons $0.50 and below, so a $0.50 is worth $1.00 off
They also allow using 3 coupons per product (1 store,1 Manf. Q & 1 e-coupon)

In an effort to save the most money, I’m not brand loyal and I remain open to trying something new if it’s cheap or free.

I hope that this information will help with saving on your grocery bill. Take it slow, one $ saved at a time.
