In Response to Re: Finding a GREAT bargain in the grocery store. : And of the $227 worth of coupons I pulled out one $ .55 .  I do so much of my shopping at Aldi's that almost anything that I would want to use a coupon for I can get at Aldi's for less. Also since my husbands fall I have been trying to clear out the freezer so I really have not been doing much shopping.  Sort of nice to see open spaces in the freezer.

I have to agree with you Nikki,most things at Aldi's are cheaper and in most cases such as produce are even nicer than the big chain store here in this area.Staple items are way cheaper too.I do couponing but mostly on things like shampoo,deodorant and other things I use that Aldi's doesn't carry.Milk,eggs,butter are great at Aldi's.I buy most of my meat when there is a sale then I stock up.I had my son run there today to pick up a few things .I really haven't done any grocery shopping to speak of since just before Christmas I'm working on getting rid of as much as possible before we move.I'm going to get some utility shelves to put in the huge closet in the hall and use it like a pantry to store all my staples.

I can understand not accepting coupons since they don't carry a whole lot of "brand" names.  What I find so strange is that they won't accept my credit card but they do take snap cards.  Always make sure I have cash when I shop at Aldi's.

By not accepting credit cards they can keep the cost of items down.  They will accept a Debit card.
This is sort of getting back to the conversation a week ago about retailers now able to charge the processing fee when accepting credit cards.  In reality they already do because the higher prices on many items reflect many of the costs of doing business.

Our area discount store (Marc's) won't take debit or credit cards because I was told they (The Bank) charge them (The Store) for the use of them.They do however take personal checks and cash.Coupons but they never double them.An Example of their prices 2  1 quart size Smuckers grape jam is 2/$3 with $1 off coupon = 2/$2 I could never make it that cheap.I buy two whenever there is a coupon.I sometimes give them away to family and friends.

I purchased two boxes of Lance Creation Crackers and a box of Golden Oreos. I used three coupons for a dollar each. Total paid 5.12.
I received a 75 cents coupon for Nestles Morsels so I decided to use it. The morsels were 70 cents. The cashier refused to give me my nickel refund so I showed the Store manger my receipt I received my nickel

I am totally shocked at chocolate chips for $.70 .  I think I would have purchased as many as they had on the shelf...without a coupon and saved the coupon for another time.

I have found that many stores have mark down sections.  Check the produce area for fresh vegetables that no longer look as pretty as they once did. Vegetables like this are great for soups and stews. The produce area may also have fruits that are just ripe or a bit past prime. Fruits like this are great for cobblers, sauces and or butters.  Home  made apple butter is so easy and very tasty. Also fruits that are ripe or a bit over ripe are great for a smoothie. Bananas freeze well and can be used for all sorts of things. The meat counter also has it's share of bargains.  Meat that has reached it's sell by date is often marked down. I found my Christmas Beef Rib Roast for $3.99 a pound rather than the $5.99 a pound it was on sale for.  bought 2, cut one into steaks and froze the bones for soup.  Served the other one for Christmas dinner. Sam's Club is a great place to find mark downs on meat. (Costco does not mark down they donate to shelters.) Shop after holidays for other bargains.  A ham purchased after Thanksgiving or Easter can be cut into chunks, frozen and then made into soup or sliced for sandwiches. Anybody else have any secrets they want to share?

When my husband and I go shopping at Giant's I get the flyer ahead of time and see what bonus buys are available on the items that we use. When there is triple buys i bring my coupons and also buy my meat on reduce and that is how I determine what I will make for dinner that week. With the bonus buys you get extra points so you can use it towards your grocery or gas. Since gas has been what it is, the most points I have ever receive was 1,230 points; I had $1.20 off gas per gallon!!

Bargains seem to be few and far between.  I try to combine store sale or specials prices with manufacturers coupons whenever I can.
