GRANA here;
 Using coupons &  MAKING M LISTFROM THE ADS, I often get items @ half price or better.
Shopping reduced racks for produe, meat& bakery items all year long.
Also going over  he registertapeto be sure sale pricesrang p correctly & creditfor coupons wasrecieved
Many items FREE!!
 I buy seasonall7(  produce in  summer; heavier meats needing baking/roasting inthe cooler weathewr.
Mayo&  pickles in the  spring summer, when the store lowers prices  to  bring shoppers in for the most wanted items in the summer.

Don't find many bargains.  Try to combine sale prices and use coupons.

I found peanut butter on sale for $1.50 a jar and it was part of a promotion.  The promotion was buy 10 items and get $10 off on your next shopping trip.  That made the PB only 50¢.  What a deal!!  Now I can make cheap cookies.

Kroger had their 16oz sour cream & cottage cheese on sale 10 for $10.00 with Oct. dates & I found 4 jars of Knorr powder chicken bouillon ( equal to 250 bouillon cubes) 1/2 off with use by dates of Sept. 2013.  I bought 2 (that is equal to 500 cubes) for the nice sum of $ 5.78. The other store had a special sale buy 8, get $8.00 off & I had coupons for 2 of the items on the list so I got 2 Kraft cheddar singles Mar. 2013 dates(reg. $ 4.39 on sale for $ 2.49 minus the $1.00 & coupon =)$ .99 each, 2 Kraft 16 oz blue cheese salad dressing(ugh!! for hubby) Feb. 2013 date (on sale for $ 1.99 minus the $ 1.00 & coupon = ) $  .49 each & 4 Crystal Light 12 qt each ($2.00 minus the $ 1.00) for $ 1.00 each AND by buying the Crystal Light I got  $ 3.00 coupon off my next shopping trip (like getting 48 quarts for $ 1.00). I also bought hubby his salisbury steak (reg. $ 3.28 on sale for $ 2.00 each so I bought 3) he gets 2 dinners & a lunch out of each. I also bought him his beef pepper oriental dinner(reg. $ 3.25 on sale for $ 2.50), I was going to buy him 3, but there was a sign on the shelf "buy 2 get a 16oz  bag of long grain rice free" so I bought him 4 & got 2# of rice free ($ 1.14 each), that is another 8 dinners for him (I do not like the stuff), red seedless grapes were $ 1.00# & really nice so I bought a little over a # (the bird will have to share with me), bought a nice head of iceberg for $ .77 & bought hubby 24 glazed donut holes (on sale), a pretty good shopping trip.
