Learning to Save on Groceries

March 28th, 2008 at 06:56 pm

On Wednesday when I got home from work, I found an application for a grocery store savings card in the mail. If I filled out the application and brought the card into the store, I'd get 10% off on my groceries for the first month.

On Thursday, I brought the card to the store and got an $18.07 discount on my grocery order. Sweet.

I perused the grocery coupon sites but I did not find many coupons for the foods I purchase. I did not remember bring my grocery chart with me, but I will bring it next time and I will employ the services of my ten-year-old to scribe the prices for me as we purchase items.

So, progress--even just a little bit--is a good thing.

    I just read all of your entries. I'm excited to learn more about your journey! Welcome to the SA family. I just joined this month after months and months of lurking. Anyway, groceries are a huge expense. Anything you can do to cut that cost should reap great rewards towards your goal. Best of luck!

    Have you read Rhonda Barfield's book about her feeding her family on $50 a week? Can't think of the exact title, but might prove helpful. You could ask after it at your local FREE library.

    You are sure to get loads of tips from this site and bloggers!

    My favorite kick is getting a coupon doubled on something already on sale in the grocery!

    OK, if there is a coupon for something you have a foreseeable use for (in a month or so) I suggest getting it and stocking up space allowing. Such as dry goods, canned goods. Don't go overboard, just basics.

    I buy seasonall things, just after the season and store, such as Christmas cookie sprinkles at 1/2 price, which store easily for a year.
