The Internet is Your Friend
We love the Internet. Don’t we? On the Internet, you can find absolutely anything you need. This is true when it comes to saving money on groceries too. A valuable site for saving you money and time when it comes to buying groceries is the Penny Pincher Gazette.
Here you’ll not only find coupons from the four major coupon brokers, you’ll also find the sale circulars for grocery stores in your area. This handy feature allows you to see what is on sale. Then to save even more, you can print coupons for groceries that go with the sale.
For example, if soup is on sale at your favorite grocery store, that’s great. Take the $0.15 off and you have a good saving. But, if you combine that $0.15 off with a thirty cents off coupon, you’ve saved a total of $0.45. — much better. Do this with your entire grocery list, and you’ve really saved big bucks.
Now, to make sure you use your groceries that you saved so much money on, check out their recipe section. Here, you’ll find recipe suggestions that come with a coupon.
