Save Money on Groceries

I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for ways to save money. Since food is one of my family of 5’s biggest monthly expenses, I especially like to save $$ on groceries. Here are a few ideas…

After hearing many rave reviews from subscribers of thegrocerygame.com, I decided to give it a try. Every week I get a list of the best deals on groceries along with information about coupons that I can use to maximize my savings. You save money by stocking up on groceries when they’re at their lowest price. The list I subscribe to is for Harris Teeter, but there are lots of other options to chose from. So far, I’m very pleased with this service. There’s a 4 week trial period that costs$1.00. After that a subscription costs $10.00 for 8 weeks. Give it a try: www.thegrocerygame.com

September is National Coupon Month. I looooove me some coupons 🙂 Here’s that website:
www.couponmonth.com

Finally, people keep telling me about Angel Food Ministries which “provides discounted food not only for those that need it, but for any others who appreciate deep discounts on quality groceries.” For $25 you can buy a food package worth $50 or more. This is open to everyone, regardless of income. Here is the website for more information and where you can find a local host site: www.angelfoodministries.com

And, of course, there’s also your friendly neighborhood Aldi store. When you don’t have coupons and don’t want to spend the time researching the best deals, Aldi always offers low prices. The stores are definitely bare bones, you have to bring or buy your own grocery bags, a cart requires a 25-cent deposit and you can count on a lengthy wait in line. But, the groceries are always cheap and you can get pretty much everything you need there. For weekly specials visit www.Aldi.com.

If you have any tips…I’d love to hear from you! You can post your comment here. Thanks!

I have three awesome kids – Andrew, Carley and Laura. My husband, Alton, is a delivery driver by day with dreams of one day publishing his own comic book. Yes, he is a geek, but I love him anyway.

I have been working at WBFJ since September 2004 when God threw me out of the boat I was riding in and set me on a new and wonderful course. I love co-hosting the morning show, although the lack of sleep does make me a bit loopy at times.

    Hey Tami – k, heard you talking about this Tuesday morning and I went on (i am an avid coupon fan), am doing the $1 trial w/ HT and Food Lion. One question since I couldn’t find this explained anywhere on the website – on the list, under manuf. coupon i see codes like (KL 7/30) or (PG 9/3) or some with S or V – do you know what those codes are? Also, for printable coupons have you tried http://www.wow-coupons.com? Found some good ones there too.

    The codes correspond to the specific coupon inserts in the Sunday paper. I know that SS means Super Saver, V means Vlassis and PG stands for Proctor & Gamble. I don’t know what the KL is. Thanks for the info about wow…I’ll check it out!
