Cut your grocery bill in half

I was standing in line at the checkout counter and saw the headline cut your grocery bill in half, it caught my attention on the Woman Day issue. Of course being the frugal momma that I am, I am always looking for some new tips. The secret ingredients Use Coupons!

The Recommendation : is a time-saving way to watch coupons and check prices. The "rock bottom" prices on hundreds of products each week and matches them up with manufacturers' coupons for the best possible savings at your local supermarket. The Grocery Game has exclusive databases that track manufacturers' coupons along with weekly sales and specials, both advertised and UN-advertised

I personally haven't used the grocery game nor have an interest in it. There is a $1.00 trial and then costs you $5.00 per month to use it. For someone who doesn't have the time to look at grocery fliers and match coupons up, it maybe worth it. I am going to pass since I rarely use coupons.

A good source of grocery store coupons is mentioned in the article and I do recommend it. The Coupons Clippers has a lot of coupons that you can order online and have them mailed to you. Also check out ebay.

My 3 personal recommendations on saving on groceries is:
1. Pricebook where you keep track of prices.
2. Weekly grocery fliers
3. Menu planning

Enjoy your savings!
