Saving Money on Groceries with the Coupon Mom Method

The only thing I used to do to save money on groceries was to make a list before each shopping trip and stick to a monthly grocery budget. I didn’t use coupons because I figured I saved more money by purchasing store brands (preferably store brands on sale) and shopping at discount stores and farmers markets.

    What excellent advice. Having been through redundancy a couple of years ago my wife and I suddenly started paying attention to prices/sales/coupons. I don’t think we managed a 75% reduction but we did save a lot of money. Watch out for stores that try and fool you by doubling the price of something and then offer a 2 for 1 deal :)

    I’ve found that coupons basically reward flexibility. The more flexible you are concerning what brands you buy and what meals you make the more you can save.

    Combining manufacturer’s coupons, grocers coupons and sales is the way to save on grocery shopping. Also buying in bulk when itmes are on sale is a huge savings as well.

    Good article.
    We eat organic, and too bad there aren’t that many coupons for organic groceries.

    Is this the website that I seen on tv last week where the lady said we could tyoe our zip code and it would tell us when was the best time to buy certain items? I saw a little of the show maybe one of the 20/20 shows.
