If you’re interested in saving on dog food and not paying full price for your Blue Buffalo Dog Food Purchases then you are probably also interested in hearing about other ways to cut down on your grocery bill. Here’s a great video from the “Coupon Mom” that can help you with just this task:
When I first started working on saving money, I thought of it as a fun game, instead of picking it up as a chore. Especially at a grocery store, they’re so many programs and promotions that you can put together to save a lot of money.
For the past 9 years, I have been interacting with shoppers and teaching them how to save money. And they ask me the same questions over and over again; “How can I do this quickly?” “How can I save like you save?” “How can I find good coupons?” “How do I figure out my store?” And it just made sense to put everything that I learned over the past 16 years into a book that is very easy to understand. So any shopper can pick up the book and find the topics that interest them, and learn how to save in those areas immediately.
One of the best ways to save money is to stock up on items when they’re on great deal. And the way to do that is to have multiple coupons. Now I actually collect multiple copies of the Sunday paper. So I have 5 of these coupons I can buy 5 items. I’ll stock them up and I won’t ever have to pay full price.
This store has items that are 10 for $10. You need to know, actually, you don’t have to buy 10 items. I have a coupon for $0.50 that the store will double. So I’ll get the item absolutely free because I know I only have to buy one. One of the tricks I teach in my book is how to interpret coupons so you can save the most money. So for example, this coupon says save $1 off any baby product–you go by what the coupon says and not necessarily the items pictured.
One of the tricks to save the most of coupons is to get coupons for items you like. In my book I talked about how you can actually e-mail companies and ask them to send you coupons and some will. Many people ask me hoe they can save money on organic food and actually there are a lot of coupons for organic food. This item is usually $2.50, it’s on sale for $1, I have a coupon for $0.75, so I’ll pay just $0.25 for an organic item that I liked.
Before I knew how to be a strategic shopper I can remember going to the store and feeling stressed because the register price will go up and up and up. But now that I’m a strategic shopper I enjoy seeing that register price go up because I know when I hand them my card and hand them my coupons, the price is gonna come way down. Going to the grocery store is no longer stressful, now it’s fun.
Now it’s time to check out. This is the fun part. So before any savings, my total is $114.28. I give them the store discount card, and that brings it down to $78.95. But the fun part, is the coupons. One I giv all my coupons, I end up saving another $77.33, I pay only $1.62 for $114 worth of grocery. That’s what I call fun!
My hope is that other families will read this book. They’ll learn how to be strategic shoppers, it’ll ease the financial stress and most of all, they’ll have fun saving big money.
