Greetings all! This week's Tuesday Tip is one that I started living by a few years ago... Couponing!
I am by far not the best coupon-er out there, but I get great deals and lots of freebies for my family! I do this by checking the coupon inserts in Sundays paper and occasionally online. Most grocery/home purchases I make I use coupons from the Sunday paper, and I never go shopping for clothes, shoes, etc without printing out coupons. I love a discount!
Here's what works for me. I forgot to take a picture of all my coupons before I filed them, so just picture a table covered with little stacks of coupons for different categories :)
Next, I open up Harris Teeter's website, that's my grocery store of choice, because they double up to $1 and it is literally a mile from my house! I pull up the virtual circular and see what's on sale that week. Let's say this week they have pork chops and stew beef on sale in the meat dept. We will have that for dinner. I plan my weekly meal plan around what is on sale at the grocery store. Not a lot on sale that week in the meat dept? Then I go to meat in the freezer that I got at a bargain another week.
Any of my readers have coupon tips or stories to share? Please post a comment :)
