Getting the FREE items at checkout

2Isn’t it nice to get items for free from the grocery store? To begin with, clip this coupon for $2.00 OFF 1 Swiffer Starter Kit (excludes Swiffer Bissell Steamboost and trial/travel size). The magic begins if your store values all manufacturer coupons at $1 or offers double or triple coupons. Automatically, you are handed the opportunity to earn certain items for free. For example, if you are looking at a 10 for $10 promotion on canned tuna, you can easily get these for free using a coupon with a $1 value. In some instances, if the value on the coupon is greater than the price of the sale item, you could even get money back. It is truly a joy, knowing that you are putting your money to the best of its use. There are times when you even walk away from the cash register with a negative number at the end of your tab. It is not impossible or extreme – just using coupons responsibly.

SHOCKING: Don’t get excited about a sale

2Don’t get excited about a sale. Shocking? Not really. The truth is, the grocery stores have made it a mission to come up with all kinds of tricks to make you think you are getting the best deals, when in fact you are not. Here is a solid example: you go to the store and see a big red tag on a pile of avocadoes on sale at $1.99 per pound. It is the week’s special and it even has its own big feature on the circular. The casual shopper will automatically be drawn to this display and feel really lucky to take advantage of such a bargain. But the true deal hound will not easily fall to this trick because she is aware that last week, the same store has put this same item on sale too but only at $0.79 per pound. This makes the best deal this week almost 3 times as much as the last sale. Now how on earth can you be excited about a sale that is actually 3 times more expensive? The key here is price tracking. Get to know your products and their prices and never be fooled again. In the meantime, grab this coupons and SAVE $0.55 on any 1 package of Frigo Cheese Heads snack cheese (8ct or larger).

When do you go for the higher end version of food?

2Most tips talking about saving money in the grocery store suggest buying generic over the name brands. If you have followed this advice without much thinking, you may have endured a lot of unsatisfying products which turned you off the store brands easily. Truth is, there is a method to this strategy. The only time you buy the generic item is when it is comparable in both taste and quality to the name brand. For example, there are generic cereals that taste the same with popular brands. The only different is that they are cheaper. Sugar will taste the same no matter the name, as well as flour and baking powder and baking soda. As an added benefit, buying store brands often come with a money-back guarantee on their products if you are not satisfied. It is worth giving a shot really. Only go for the higher end version of food when the taste is unparalleled or if you have coupons that get you discounts such as this $1.00 off on the purchase of any 1 package of JENNIE-O Turkey Breakfast Sausage.

Be Smarter With Shortcuts

2Convenience is such a big word when it comes to grocery shopping but you have to be careful to determine what convenience means for you. For instance, you can serve instant treats to your children if you get readymade cookie dough and even save $1.00 when you buy 2 packages any variety Pillsbury Refrigerated Cookie Dough with a coupon. However there are some things you need to think about like whether getting dried beans or canned ones. The dried is definitely cheaper but if you cannot be bothered to soak them overnight, forget it. The same goes for a bag of brown rice, which is cheaper than a box of instant, but you have to cook it for an hour. Going the do-it-yourself route is indeed economical but it has to make sense for you. For example, get the cheaper and bigger container of plain yogurt than single-serving flavored ones since they will taste the same and you can easily use up the larger container by putting it on smoothies and parfaits. Fresh green beans and salad leaves are easy decisions to pick over the bagged variety. Whole carrots also give you more value for money than the baby ones. Just chop and grate them to add to soups, spaghetti sauces, and salads.
