We’ve all seen the stories on the news about how this person got $268 worth of groceries and only paid $13.62.
They clipped coupons and used them on triple and double coupon days and in conjunction with sales.
That is a really cool idea.
But, not every one is lucky enough to be able to do that.
There are many areas of the this country that don’t even do double and triple coupon days.
So, you just have to find some other ways to cut down on your grocery bills.
The best way to find the best deals is to look at the store flyers. Many stores even post them online. Some stores even will send them to your inbox.
Unless you find a lot of great deals at several stores, I suggest you pick the one that has the most bargains.
I know many people say the opposite. But, running all over to the different stores uses gas which can negate any potential savings you may get.
Over time, you will begin to see a pattern of when food is lower priced. When it is low, you stock up.
Some good examples are baking supplies around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Ham and turkey are on sale at that time too. Ham is always on sale around Easter as well.
Cream soups, especially mushroom, are on sale around those holidays too.
As fas as meat goes; when beef is higher priced, pork is lower and vice versa. I don’t know why. But, it usually works that way.
Produce that is in season is always less expensive than any that is out of season.
When things are close to expiration, some stores will mark them down. The product is not necessarily bad, but it will need to be used soon after buying.
After a holiday stores will put things out on clearance. Things such as egg nog or holiday colored candy.
Hopefully these tips will save you some money!
