Ok, I've been using coupons for quite a while but I want to start using more of them to pay for my groceries.
Here's what I mean; Before we go shopping (its just my sister and I) we always have a list of items that we need as well as any ads and our coupons. This weekend we went to Crest in Edmond and spent $143. We only saved $10. We also shop at Homeland (only shop off the ad), Target (again, only off the ad) and Aldi's.
The items we bought were items that don't ususally have coupons like fresh meat and produce. We also bought pop (coke was 4 for $11). Sometimes our grocery bill has been as high as $170 with coupons. We try to buy enough food and such to last us two weeks. With my work schedule (11pm-7am 10 days on and 4 days off) and her's (Mon-Fri 7am-3pm) we don't like to run around all over town. We usually shop either in the early morning (that's why we like 24hr stores) or late at night. We try to go together as much as we can.
How else can we get more use out of our coupons?
