To save money, check weekly retail circulars. You'll learn to detect sales patterns and wait to buy during substantial discounts.
A study indicated that basket shoppers impulse buy. Use a conventional shopping cart to stay on track. Or make a grocery list.
These are hard to locate in supermarkets, but they're a treasure trove. Stockers check shelves for broken or rebranded items.
This is when you can find deals on perishable items like meat, produce, and bread. Make a friend of the butcher. Often, all you have to do at the end of the day is ask for a discount.
You may be loyal to certain brands, but retail brands may be comparable. Your total bill will be less, and store-labeled products are generally the same quality.
It's easy to think of a coupon as money. In fact, Bed Bath & Beyond actually counts manufacturer's coupons as cash against your purchase when you present them at the register.
Newspapers aren't the only place to find coupons any longer. You may find them on Living On The Cheap's Coupons page, SmartSource, Red Plum, and Target.com.
Using coupons and loyalty cards can save you an average of $480 a year on groceries, despite the fact that supermarkets are tracking your every purchase.
