Grocery Savings

January 30th, 2011 at 09:21 am

I have been updating my coupon savings this month and as of today my total grocery coupon savings is $154.75.

This is only on grocery items! My dh and I do shop for sale items on household and entertainment needs.
We try to curb our spending as much as we can. Dh has a collection that he is constantly adding to and sometimes he does over spend in that category but we are working on it.

How much do you save every month by using coupons?

    My coupon savings aren't even close to yours. I would say a good month would be saving around $15 in coupons. My biggest frustration with coupons is having to buy two or more of things. Our local grocery store gave me a coupon to save $1.50 on 4 boxes of Cheerios. That might work if we had a family eating boxes and boxes of cereal. I'm the only one who eats Cheerios and storing 4 boxes can be a challenge.

    Wow, your coupon usage leads to more savings that I have ever even come close to! My sister does a lot with them, and she finds the best insurance for her to keep them organized is in a small file box that she takes with her to the store. It works for her, because she takes the time to be organized about it.

    I keep my coupons in a small file box too.Smile
    I put dividers with tabs to keep it organized. My categories are baking, beverages, canned goods, cereal, dairy, cleaning supplies, condiments, frozen foods, laundry needs, health and beauty, paper/plastic, pasta/rice, snacks, and miscellaneous.

    It usually takes me about 10 minutes to look through them before I go to the grocery store. I make a shopping list and use coupons only for the items I will actually use. Last night I saved $7.55 with coupons at the grocery store. I thinks that is a good return for 10 minutes of work.Smile
