Save More Spend Less: Supermarket Savings
By spendlesssavemore on July 29, 2013
This week I will be giving tips on how to make the most out of the places we shop from your local dollar store to your big box stores. As always planning your weekly or monthly shopping trip takes planning ahead and research and visiting your favorite online coupon supplier, that’s us I hope. So, knowing how to save the most you can at the stores you frequent is what this weeks’ focus will be about starting with your shopping plan.
A shopping plan starts with taking inventory of your stock pile and then pulling out your weekly inserts then going to your our coupon page and the hot coupon page to maximize your savings and stock up when you can. To make things a little clearer on our hot coupon page you will see this photo to next to coupon so you will know it’s the test price at this time and time to stock up.
Shopping at your local supermarket gives you the advantage of purchasing national brands at a fairly discounted rate when you use store inserts, coupons and print coupons this is not always possible so check out the coupon policy for your store to know if you can combine coupons or if you can only use manufacture or in store coupons to make the best deal possible.
Best supermarket deals can be found in the produce aisle they are normally less expensive than in your box or warehouse club. According to the national database at the groccerygame.com retailers tend to reduce produce prices as the seasonal produce is at its peak at the beginning of the season and again at the end of the season. For example a summer staple strawberries can be sold for as high as $2.99 a pound in the middle of the season and begin to drop in the end of the season to as low as $2.00 for 5 lbs. Keep an eye out for this because strawberries hold up well when flash freezing for winter or fall use. I love a fresh strawberry smoothie in the winter time. Keep this in mind for not just strawberries but other summer time fruits and vegetables soon to be discount in the coming weeks. For more tips and money saving coupons visit www.where2save.com
