Couponing is a good way to save on groceries. Now I have not always thought so. I was a Wal-Mart person. My thinking was - Wal-Mart's cheaper. I thought that name brand foods was still more expensive. My mom gave me coupons by times, and I forgot I had them. I just didn't believe it saved me any money.
I have been enlightened. These last months of couponing have convinced me. It is worth using coupons. I wish I could figure up how much I have saved since I started. But that is impossible.
I usually feel pretty good at saving 50% on my grocery bill. Sometimes I can and sometimes I can't.
1. Most coupons are not over $1.
2. Giant will only double the first coupon on like items.
3. Some coupons have a limit of 4 same coupons.
4. I cannot stack coupons often.
How do you get free stuff? Do different areas get better coupons? Are some stores just better with sales and coupons?
Our Shippensburg-Chambersburg area has Giant, Wal-Mart, Weis, CVS, Walgreens, and Target(no produce and that type), and Food Lion. Are there other stores that normally do better with coupons?
I would love to hear some comments on how you do couponing. Do you buy $100 worth for $10?
