This week we’ve enhanced the list to include coupons and offers we have previously mentioned, but that are still available.

Cheap Groceries! October 1, 2010

This post is courtesy of my cousin Lisa:

There is a free trial period, but the subscription costs $10.00 for 8 weeks.  Basically she teaches you how to use coupons at the grocery store properly.  I’m sure you’ve heard of the people who can get $100.00 worth of groceries for $10.00 – Well this is what she is teaching you.  She takes all the homework out and gives you the list of what ever grocery store you sign up for, I shop at Cub.  She will then give you a list of all advertised and non-advertised sales and which coupons to use, and yes you must get the Sunday paper and clip coupons.  I just meal plan according to what’s on sale.  I’ve always used grocery coupons but until I started using this site was clueless on how to get the most of them.

The most I’ve saved on 1 grocery bill is $96.00 and the least is $22.00 but my average is around $60.00 every time I grocery shop.

Just another way we can all shop smart!
