  1. To always grocery shop with a list and do not stray from the list

  2. I always go with an idea in mind of what I am looking for. I also take advantage of clearance items,sales,and coupons…all at once! BIG discounts!

  3. April Yedinak says:

    Learn when your stores mark down certain items like meat and bakery.

  4. jodi bradshaw says:

    buy what you need. its so easy to get caught up on sales and coupons and end up buying stuff that you don’t need/want and its actually wasting money more than anything.

  5. Donna Vineyard says:

    Make a list and stick to it!

  6. Use your loyalty cards!

  7. Shop the circular and buy what is on sale.

  8. Don’t go grocery shopping on an empty stomach. You’ll make impulse buys you don’t need at a premium price.

  9. Only go down the aisles in the grocery that you need to.

  10. My tip is to use coupons every time you shop

  11. Christy Anderson says:

    I look at sales before I go shopping and have a list and do not buy anything that is not on the list!

  12. Shop off season for best bargains. Like when summer things go on clearance, stock up for the next year.

  13. Make a list and use coupons!

  14. The key is to collect & organize your coupons, then when there’s a good sale/deal on an item, use your coupons. It’s all in timing. Stock pile when items are at rock bottom prices. If a store has “member” cards (ie. Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, Safeway, etc) get onboard so you earn rewards & member discounts. Subscribe to receive multiple Sunday newspapers, or ask friends & neighbors who throw theirs away. Make friends with your mail carrier to hook you up with extra inserts. You can also find & print coupons from online. I’m a newbie at couponing, but it didn’t take me long to “get with the program.” No more spur of the moment spending when something runs out because I have a supply of what I need and only shop when things go on sale to maintain my stockpile. :)

  15. I always check to see if there are online coupons that can be loaded on to my loyalty cards, check ibotta and I review my saving star account to make sure that i have coupons loaded and my cards added so that if I purchase something I can be credited. I also review sales, have my coupon matchups in a list

  16. Tara Liebing says:

    Always look through the store ad and your coupons before going to the store and make a list of what you are going to buy and what coupon you are using.

  17. Nannypanpan says:

    My tip is to shop at more than one grocery store to get the big sale/ savings items from each

  18. DOuble stack coupons and much as you can make a list and do all your errands on one day

  19. I keep coupons and check the weekly circulars, and I buy and stock up (not too much though, just what we will use in the next 1/2 to 1 year) there will be a lot more sales. Also I check different web sites/blogs that helps me figure out what is a good deal. Also ibotta app, and targets app is great!
    I can at target get wonderful deals by adding regular coupons, target coupons, cartwheel and ibotta!! saving saving saving!

  20. Stack a manufacturer coupon, Target coupon and use the Target Cartwheel app to get the highest amount of savings!

  21. Always have coupons and a plan for shopping. Don’t go without a list and a general idea of how much you are going to spend.

  22. I always to detailed 2 week meal plans and make a list before shopping.

  23. Don’t go shopping often and save pennies at home in an oversized baby bottle.

  24. Pat Caruso Burgess says:

    I always write out my grocery list in order of the layout of the store. That way i avoid having to backtrack and possibly grabbing an unneeded item on impulse. I also take advantage of Kroger’s new e-coupons they provide each week–they are so convenient!

  25. Target offers great coupon opportunities. In my town, no grocery will let you use a store coupon and manufacturer coupon other than Target. They also have Cartwheel deals. I load up on whatever deals I can find there — usually toiletries.

  26. my best is: looking for your post Kroger deals and making a list to save !!
