I went through my coupons and I found four for 50 cents off the new dark chocolate Nestles chips.I'll get them at my Giant Eagle and get $1 off each.

I spend about 2 hours each week going through the Sunday coupons and store ads, and have perfected a system that works for me. I usually save about 50% on my grocery bill each week, combining the store specials, member discounts, paper coupons and e-coupons. Last week my bargain was 3 containers of Skippy peanut butter for which I paid $1.76 total. The key for me is to only shop once each week, only buy meat when it is on sale, and stick to my grocery list!

Hi Verlee,I try to do the same .Most of the time I can save 50% sometimes more but if the grocery prices keep going up I just don't know.I need to get my printer cartridge refilled so I can start looking on line some more.

I made out my grocery list for this week and I have $45 worth of coupons to use,plus everything is on sale that I'm buying.I should save over 50% after all is said and done.I don't want to be premature in saying this but the prices seem to be coming down just a little.The price of meat has been higher due to the poor corn crops this year.

Hi girls.  What web sites do you get coupons from?
I haven't been on here for quite a while.  Not feeling good.  Blood work tomorrow.  Hopefully, I'm not to weak or to fatigued to get it    Had to have computer looked over and cleaned too.
I use coupons, if I have them.  Meijers is the only one that I am aware that doubles .50 cents.  Krogers maybe???

Hi DiAnne,so sorry to hear you're not feeling well,hope you feel better soon! I usually go to coupon Mom.I also visit the product sites as well often they offer coupons on a lot of the brands that I use.The Sunday papers as well If there are good coupons I will often buy more papers even if you spend a couple of dollars sometimes there are many times that amount of savings.They mail out coupons,most of the times weekly.

I've noticed some of my stores say they will only take a certain number of coupons and some won't double electronic coupons.  Where I stopped today they had a long list (whole page) about coupong posted where they have their ad.

I saw some sales for Miracle Whip and/or kraft mayo for $3.49 in one store and $2.49 in another.  Have to watch ads closely.  I also noticed that the quart jar in now only 30 ounces.  Sneaky aren't they?

I was in a local Grocery store and my chin hit the floor.  This was an ad special, coffee $11.49.  This is unheard of!

Prices in New Jersey have gone up too.  I think it is the same everywhere.  I try to buy what is on sale and that I have a coupon for.  I also buy large packages of chicken and other things and then split it up for several meals.  I never go to the store without my coupons.

DiAnne - I use 3 online sites for printable coupons. My favorite is coupons.com. I also use shortcuts.com and pgesaver.com. For e-coupons I like cellfire.com.

We have 2 major grocery store chains that will double coupons up to $1.00, with no limit on how many coupons you have.

I also shop Target for some of my groceries, and they take grocery coupons but do not double the amount.

Posted by Maxine M


Hy-Vee has the red ones for 99¢ this week.  That is my top price to pay for grapes.  I have a top price for most things and wait until there's a sale to get my price.  Unfortunately some thing will probably never get back down to my price.  Sugar, for example, used to be 99¢ on sale (4 lb. bag in this area) and now SALE is $1.99.  What happened?

No Coupons in the Sunday paper,it seems there are never coupons on the holiday weekends.That works for me this week,I stocked up last week and will only have to fill in this week.I still have a few coupons to redeem by Wednesday before the sale ends.Hoping for a good meat sale this week. That's funny isn't it !! lol !

I finished up the rest of the coupons I had.I spent $41.05 and saved $32.50 with all my coupons.I bought 2 bags of the new dark chocolate chips.I had $1 off coupons from the paper a couple of weeks ago.I don't want to be premature in saying this but it seems some of the prices are down a little.I bought brownie mix for 50 cents a box with the sale and double coupons,I usually don't use too many mixes but they are nice to have on hand.I saw Bacon advertised this week for $2.98 # that's much better than it has been.Beef is still sky high,the bad corn crops this year didn't help with the price of meat at all.

My HY-Vee has some really good buys this week.  Their sour cream in the 8 oz container is only 39¢.  Most recipes call for 1 cup and if you have the larger size you have to think of something to do with the rest fairly quickly before it grows green fuzz.
They also had a lot of items for $1.00.  Pancake syrup was one of them that we usually get at Aldi's for $1.49.  Personally I like real maple syrup, but hubby likes the other stuff.
Pillsbury cake mixes are 77¢ (limit 2),  The best think was organic peaches and nectarines for 99¢ a pound.  That is a real bargain.

Domino Sugar is on sale for 2.79 a five pound bag. I used two 65 cents  coupons which were doubled to 2.80 plus Thursday discount  this morning and paid 2.91 for two five pound bags of sugar.
