I'm not one to subscribe to a newspaper, so I don't get the coupons. I've been stumbling accross various online coupon sites like couponmom.com where the coupons are free. To me it's faster to buzz through them online and click on the ones you want instead of cutting them out.

It's not the paths you choose, it's what you do with those chosen paths.

Hi Carol, thanks for posting such excellent tips to make grocery shopping a little less traumatic! My bf and I clip coupons, but we need to do like you do and tailor them to the sales instead of what we've been doing lately, just using a coupon as an excuse to buy something we don't need.

88 cents a bag for Birdseye is an incredible deal!

One thing we are already planning is to buy meat in bulk and freeze it for later, just as you suggested. We have been paying full price for meat and we need to really pay more attention.

Thank you for welcoming me!!

Dieting is not a piece of cake.

Welcome Kathy! You're in the right place.

If you don't do this already: Closely look at the weekly grocery sales flyer ads, and stock up on sales. Gradually throughout the year, one sale at a time, buy a little more than you will use, and fill your freezer with sale meats and veggies, and fill your pantry up with staples. Write dates on with a sharpie marker, and use oldest first. Also I clip coupons.

For example last week a local store here had 16 oz bags of Birdseye frozen veggies, 5 or 6 dif kinds, for 88 cents a bag. That's cheaper than generic, AND, I had Birdseye coupons. Matching coupons with sales is beating them at their own game. I filled up my freezer.

Then if laid off or prices go way up, or you can't get out of the house due to weather etc., you have your own stockpile. NEVER PAY FULL RETAIL.

Hi there, my name is Kathy.

I joined the team to learn more ways to save. Especially at the grocery store where things have gotten sooooo expensive.
