Weekly Tip

Do you have a favorite grocery store? Do you have several stores that you frequent to try and get the best deal? Do you subscribe to or go out and buy a newspaper to get the latest circulars and sale fliers for those stores and then go bananas flipping through all of those ads, comparing, finding where you put them or where a family member moved them to?

Help yourself out a little by going electronic!

Visit the website for whichever stores you frequent and do a little searching. Most stores offer an email newsletter. You can often sign up for a weekly email that will include a current sales ad or information for your location. Many also include recipes and tips or interactive shopping lists (click on the item in the ad and it is added to your list). If that option isn't available, you can copy and paste your items into a Word document and keep a running list by store as you go.

Your sales ads will now be delivered to your inbox and as a bonus, you'll be saving paper clutter and your sanity! You can toss those paper ads in the recycle bin and never look back!

I've done this, too! I like when there is a search function, or when you can actually make up a list based on sales. Walgreen's lets you click on an item and get its coupon. This comes in handy for me, since I'm forever losing my Walgreen's circular, LOL!

I am going to give that a try!

Thanks for the tip!

This coupon thing must be genetic. You sound just like the gals that take care of me...which is a good thing. No, I don't do coupons...too much stuff in my wallet already.
