Amanda said...

While I'm not a coupon queen who somehow manages to get PAID at checkout, I do my best to clip them, print them, or digitally load them to my savings card. I then match them up with sales to maximize my savings.

When there's an exceptionally good coupon on a product I purchase regularly, I'll pick up multiples of it on ebay (Typically costs under $2 shipped for 10-20x) This has been especially helpful for pet food and litter!

Thanks so much for the chance to win!

I stock up, use coupons and shop sales/markdowns. I also use my freezer to avoid throwing food away.

I buy what's on sale, match it with coupons and stock up! Since I started couponing I've saved a ton and our stockpile keeps growing.

We save money on groceries by using coupons, buying store brand staples like sugar, eggs, milk, ect (we can't tell the difference on these things from national brands), stock up on marked down meat, and sign up for store alerts. Most store allow you to upload coupons onto your shopper card to save even more!
