    Another thing I try to do is combine store coupons with manufacture coupons. I’ve gotten products for less than $1 by doing that. Also, we pretty much by generic unless a coupon makes the name brand the cheaper option. I wish our grocery store gave you $0.05 back for reusable bags since I’ve really started doing that…it would be a nice bonus. This has only happened to me once but one of our larger grocery stores has this scan/bag as you shop options and then you hook the scanner up to a self run registered at the end to pay. Every so many customers they “audit” to make sure people aren’t stealing and if you’re honest, they give you $5 off your purchase. Pretty cool!

  • ok I found you and bookmarked you in my new laptop. What a nuisance all my bookmarks are gone. It kills me all the sites I’ll forget and never find again. Not as much as losing my sweet baby’s 2nd birthday photos, but it still irks me.
