How To Start Saving On Your Grocery Bill

During the month of October Angela over at The Coupon Project had a series of lessons about how to start saving money at grocery and drug stores. She touches on the subjects of using sales and coupons, stockpiling, and even rebates, as well as coupon etiquette.

A number of people have asked me how to get started using coupons which I’ve addressed in my Steps to Grocery Savings, but I think she did a great job of taking the mystery out of it and breaking it down into do-able steps.

So if you’re needing some guidance or inspiration, start with her wrap-up here, then click on any of the lessons that interest you.

I’d love to see some comments from anyone who has started to save using some of the strategies that have been mentioned. Help inspire us all!

    Great suggestions, Donna! And I’ve seen those coupons left on the shelves before- so it was you! ;-)

    I do great sticking to my list, bringing all the coupons,and planning the menus. I don’t know if you mentioned this in any of the articles, but the “Managers Specials” are great, especially in the meat department. When I can find ground beef for $1.25 or so a pound, I buy every package. The same with steaks under $2. Then, I either quickly rework the next weeks menu in my mind, or plan on freezing these packs till later. Also, many stores now are offering you a small .03-.10 discount, if you bring your own shopping bags. I have a collection of reuseable shopping bags that we have been given and just have to remember to take them in. they give the discount per bag used so on a big shopping trip you could save a $1 or $2 more, not alot but every bit helps.
    If I have extra coupons that I don’t need, I sit them on top of the product on the shelves. They will get used by someone! And its secretly fun to leave these little goodies for someone else to find.
