No stores in our area double or triple coupons ; several refuse to take them at all; buying sale items& marked down is often the only sure way to cut expenses; also shopping close to home; spending less on gasoline that way!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shopping at wholesale/club stores & combining their own with mfr.coupons is the best coupon deal around here,
I saved $19+ this week using just straight coupons; plus several items were on sale so my savings were even better!
Still we went over budget by nearly$20. Hubby got 30 cans of light beer, maybe enough to get him through the summer( 1/2 can per day)he also got pretzels to go w/ the beer,"life's little pleasures"
