When most people think of saving money while shopping for groceries, they think of using coupons. I find using coupons to be quite a chore. It’s difficult for me to take time out to start cutting coupons for products I don’t even use or even joining some of those coupon cutting sites I hear so much about. Get premium coupons now in the Coupons.com Savings Club.

There are even websites you can join that actually let you buy coupons for products you normally use. The way it works is; you pick and choose, say 10 to 15 product coupons. When you buy them at the checkout you get a pretty substantial savings on these manufacturer coupons and you can use them virtually anywhere. In other words, for two dollars worth of coupons you end up saving roughly $6-$15. Using the sort of system can actually add up to quite a bit of savings throughout the year.

However, my favorite and only way to save money while shopping for groceries is probably the easiest method. I use weekly ads or weekly flyers as they’re sometimes called.

I use Publix weekly ads from their official website for a store near my home and I assemble a list containing the buy one get one free offers of my choosing. Then, I quickly skim through some of the other available offers and with within 10 minutes or so, I have assembled a list with the potential to save me approximately $30-$50 per trip for $150.00 worth of groceries.

I save an average of $100.00 a month with this method which if fine by me! That’s an extra $1,200.00 a year I can use for a trip or anything else I would like.
