As soon as I unpack my groceries from my reusable grocery bags, I put the empty bags near the door that is on my way outside. This way I can grab them on the next trip out to the car and have them ready for my next shopping trip.341
When I get to my favorite grocery store, there are large signs around the parking lots reminding customers not to forget their shopping bags.
I'm sure you've seen all those dollar stores that seem to have sprung up everywhere! Well, guess what? They really DO save you money. If you are a sharp shopper, you can find many wonderful bargains at dollar stores. Bags of chips for a party - $1. Brand name over the counter medicines - $1. Fun gifts for a child - $1. Candles to decorate your house - $1. Holiday items - $1. Don't miss out on these wonderful savings
Just be aware that some of these stores say they are dollar stores, but do have items that cost more. I avoid those stores & only shop at stores where everything is $1 or less!
In my house we eat a lot of chicken, pork chops, and ground chuck. I'm a member of Sams club and we buy these things in bulk. For example you can get a pack of split chicken breast at Sams for about $14 and you can get about 4 meals out of one pack. Same applies to the pork chops and ground chuck.
A few more things: 1. Don't be afraid of store brands. 2. Be willing to deviate from your list for great deals. 3. If you can wait shop on double or triple coupon days. 4. Get rain checks when sales items are out of stock. 5. As your preferred store to match prices from other stores.
