|An actual receipt of mine! (BEST YET)|
The hardest thing is just getting started! I've watched my coworkers do this for almost 4 years and still wasn't on my game like I should be. Then one day (SUNDAY) I just decided to get a paper. Just a mere $2 changed the game for me!! You are bound to find at least $2 worth of savings that apply to you! So it's worth it! then you combine that with going online.
Kroger and Publix have their own coupons that you can use WITH the manufacturer's coupons. That's called STACKING!! And they also double coupons that are $0.50 or less EVERDAY!! Check out their weekly ads so that you can go into the store PREPARED!
Only purchase what's on sale. I know that's hard but you can shop to the sales. Before you know it you will begin to have everything on hand that you need and then will only need the essentials (milk, bread, butter, etc.)
There are tons of sites dedicated to helping you find the best deals and even FREE items. They often put out what's free at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, as well as the grocery stores! They will tell you when the coupon was printed in the paper and sometimes even give you the link to a printable coupon.

Subscribe to their blogs and you can get the tips sent right to your email. I use google reader and I will just go there and all of my blog subscriptions are listed together. These sites are not just dedictated to groceries. You can find deals on electronics, clothing, toys...anything!!! They also do a weekly round up of retail stores with coupon codes or printable coupons.
My fiance became a believer when he came with me on a mini run! My total then was $0.41!
|Most of the stuff in there was for him! LOL!|
