Choosing Your Supermarket

To shop Albertsons, or to shop Smith's -- that is the question.  Okay, so Shakespeare is probably cringing!  But it is a good question.  Choosing a grocery store can be challenging.  There are a few things to keep in mind when making the decision:

Most of us don't have the time to visit two or three grocery stores each week to catch the great deal of the week.  So it's important to understand that really great deals are often driven by the manufacturers marketing plan.  So it stands to reason that if they're going to be marketing their product in one of three stores in your area, a similar deal will show up in the other stores - possibly at the same time (probably within the month).

It's your money and you get to decide when, how and where you spend it.  Get to know your neighborhood markets and choose one that offers the services your looking for - one that caters to your needs.  Is the store clean?  Can you find a shopping cart when you need one?  Are the boxes and cans dented?  Are there enough people to service the specialty (meat, bakery etc.) counters?  Are the prices clearly labeled?

Okay, so you're choice has narrowed to two stores.  But wait!  One store definitely has cheaper prices than the other.  So we should choose that store, right?  Hold on a second.  Often the most expensive stores will save you the most money.  Remember, you will not be buying at "original" prices.  You will be buying items on sale - AND using a coupon.

Your time is also valuable.  What stores are in the closest proximity to your home?  How many registers/checkouts are there?  How long does it take you to checkout?  Is the checkout person courteous?  Are they able to bag your groceries without breaking your eggs or smooshing your bread?

Once you've made your decision, shop with confidence.  When you are a 'regular' at 'your' supermarket, the store personnel become familiar with you also.  You will learn which checkout personnnel are friendliest to couponers and the best times to shop.  You will become familiar with product placement which will decrease the time it takes to complete your shopping trips.  And if your needs change or you become dissatisfied for whatever reason, make a change! 

No Inserts This Weekend

Just a reminder -- There will be NO INSERTS this weekend!  For you couponing newbies, Smart Source and Red Plum do not deliver inserts on major holiday weekends.  But keep your eyes open for next week's inserts -- you can expect the Smart Source, Red Plum and P&G to show up at your house!

You can also reference the 2010 insert schedule HERE.

20% Off at Cold Stone

In honor of E! Entertainment's 20th anniversary, Cold Stone is offering a 20% Off coupon.  Now this is the kind of coupon my husband will LOVE me for!  Just head over HERE to print yours.

Free 1 Year Subscription - ReadyMade Magazine!

ValueMag is offering a complimentary one year (6 issues) subscription to ReadyMade magazine (no credit card required).  Just head over here to request your subscription.  With information on projects for your home and patio, this magazine would be great for all you do-it-yourselfers.  6-8 weeks for delivery.

Walmart - Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon, $2.97

Chef's Requested is offering a $3 off any 8 oz. or greater Chef's Requested Product (the $3 coupon can only be printed once from each computer).  Walmart has these bacon wrapped filet mignon (2 to a 10oz. package) priced at $5.97.  They also have a bacon wrapped filet of beef package (2 to a 10oz. package) priced a little bit lower -- but not nearly as tender IMO.  However, both would be a great buy with this coupon.  While your at the Chef's Requested site, you may want to print the $1 off coupon also.  This coupon can be printed twice from each computer.

Albertsons Shop & Share

I thought I would share my recent shopping trip to Albertsons.  I haven't done this in awhile (share, that is - I shop all the time!). . . so here goes:

Total value of order:  $134.59
Preferred Savings:  $51.52
Coupon Savings:  $24.80
Total Out of Pocket:  $58.27
(additional $10 catalina print - Total Savings:  $86.32 - 64%)

I don't know what else I could do with my time that would make me $86 an hour!  Some will say that you can't buy items you need on a daily basis using coupons.  Not true!  This order consisted of:

5lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 pkg. Ore-Ida mashed potatoes
1 lb. sour cream
1 gallon milk
1 loaf Roman Meal bread
1 pkg. hamburger buns
2 pkgs. popcorn
1 bag tortilla chips
1 pkg. flour tortillas
1 Lawry's marinade
(15) 32oz. bottles Powerade
2 pkgs. Hunts pudding
4 cans Bush's beans
4 Marie Calender Homestyle Creations
2 Healthy Choice Fresh Mixers
4 bottles Hunts ketchup
8 cans tomato sauce
1 Renuzit Air Fresherner Crystals

All usable items, agreed?  While buying items I need, I'm also able to stock up (tomato sauce and Powerade, for example).  When you coupon shop regularly, you don't need to buy those same essential items each week.  Your shelves are stocked because you're using your coupons to buy your pantry items in bulk when they're on sale.  Even though cereal is on sale this week -  I already have 32 boxes in my pantry (yes, it's a large walk-in pantry) and I bought each one for under a dollar.  Stocking up on commonly used items when on sale, is a smart and efficient way to grocery shop. 

This is Grocery Smarts way of helping your dollar go further.  Not only can you save on your groceries, but you can also save on your household and personal care items.  For example, our home is so well stocked with deodorant, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toilet paper and razors -- I won't buy these items unless I get them for free.  Let me share with you how you can do the same.  Please visit the free website and then call me when you're ready to learn more.  We have a fun, simple way of explaining the details to you and your friends.  It doesn't take long, (about an hour) and you'll leave with a set of skills that will enable you to SAVE, SAVE, SAVE!
