Just a few tips–
1) keep a price book so you know what is a good price or each item (Incase you see it on sale or discount then you know if it’s a good enough
deal to stock up on )
2)If you use coupons, watch sales so that you can combine sales andcoupons–even better if a store near you will double coupons.
3)If you use coupons, it’s worth your while to have many—especially of
items you use a lot of. I print coupons from http://www.boxtops4education.comand I try to check out websites for items I use a lot or really like.
Many companies offer coupons on their website. You can print coupons at
http://www.smartsource.com, though I personally can not make it work on mycomputer.
see if these services are available in your area. If not, you may wantto pick a particular grocery store (the one that doubles coupons!) and
keep the sales ads over a 12 week period and compare. Supposedly, all
stores run their sales in a 12 week cycle so if you see a good deal on,say, spaghetti sauce, then you want to buy enough to last 12 weeks until
it is on sale again. I haven not tried this myself though I plan to.
5) http://www.upons.com another website that gives “electronic” coupons forcertain grocery stores that use a preferred shopper card. You go to
their website and click on what you want and they are “added” to your
card and automatically come off when you purchase these items or theirexpire. I have not personally found any of the coupons there to be ones
I really used, but you might. Sometimes there are quite a few and
sometimes only a couple.6) consider joining a coupon swap –you can find an established one at
www. familycorner.com by clicking on “forums” and then looking for
