With a family of 5 I try to save as much as possible. I heard about Crystal's ebook about saving money at the grocery store at Amy's site and decided to check it out. I have saved alot of money at the store! First I checked out my local Food Lion store sale flyer and based my meals around what meats, vegies etc. they had on sale. I also went by the Grocery Game's method, its only $1 for an 8 week membership, I figured what did I have to lose right? My first trip was to Food Lion to stock up on TP, snacks i.e. cake mixes, cereal, paper plates, ect. My total before savings was $49.28 after I used my MVP and coupons my total was $21.07. I saved 59% on my grocery trip! My second trip to Food Lion I spent $31.13 on TP, great sale and we always need it right, LOL, cereal again we are stockpiling here and my hubby snuck in some cheese no coupon for that tho, my total after savings was $16.56 or a 49% savings. I never buy things I don't need, except when hubby sneaks things in the cart! LOL and the idea again is to stockpile the things you need when they are ON SALE, and they you save money later. Today was my big shoping day. I bought a weeks worth of food using the method of Crystals and the Grocery Game, my total was $233.09 before MVP and coupons and after $161.36, a 32% savings, not to bad. This metod of savings certainly helps, I don't buy food or items that I won't need which is soooo important LOL! Check it out and let me know how you do!
