What's for Dinner this week? Many mom hear this question through out the week.. Have you started your menu yet?
I've received several emails from you, asking on how I save and organized?
Every Monday I will be sharing tips on how, help you succeed at the grocery store.
Here are my tips for you this week. Getting setup to save money and organized.
Follow the steps below to be on your way to cut your grocery bill in half.
1. Check your pantry and fridge before making your list.
(it is important to know what you have before buying)
2. Get the Sunday paper for the coupons.
3.Check online for coupons
4.Set up an email account just for for your coupons.
5.Sign up at your fav mfg sites for coupons, trust me you will be glad you did. I use soymilk every month they send coupon out for a free 1/2 gallon, that's a $3.67 savings a month.
6.Use ziplist to store your menus, and create a shopping list, you can send this list to your phone..
7.Sign up to Rachel Ray newsletter, she sends 7 days meal planning to your email..
8.Sign up for Campbell soup newsletter, amazing dinner ideas using soup.
9.Sign up for Simple magazine monthly meals newsletter.
Here are my easy peasy process:
Wednesdays, I save my grocery stores flyers to check what coupons are in the Sunday paper.. I only carry coupons of items I know I will be using.
Example for Spaghetti I always use rolls, I will cut the Pillsbury coupons, compare the grocery store flyers for maximum savings.
Target,have deep discounts on certain items each week, they also have in-store coupons as well. I save $ by not printing those coupons at home, rather I print them from the gift registry section located at each target.
Here are examples of savings. Stove Top was $49. at the Grocery store it was $1.89. that is a saving of $1.40..
Walmart has free items weekly, with coupons..
I devote 1 hour a week to setting up menu, cutting coupons and getting my list ready, in turn I save regularly between $22-29 weekly on my groceries. Some weeks I save $45.00 when the item is bgofree, then I use a coupon, further deep discount.
Next week I will explore the wonderful world of Drugstore and how they can pay you to shop there.
1. Dice the Green Pepper, Red Pepper, Onions, Garlic (3 cloves) add Oregano, Evoo, Smoke salt.
