My friend Shannon and I were so excited to meet with a few of you last night at our coupon class! We may have overwhelmed you (we both talk way too fast . . . ) but here are a few links we promised to share that may help you out:
- Before clipping a single coupon, first determine your family’s grocery budget.
- If you’re totally new to couponing, start at the beginning.
- Identify top prices on specific groceries before you go to the grocery store.
- You can make huge changes in your families grocery budget just by choosing to shop differently.
- Many items that you purchase can be frozen to lengthen their shelf life.
- Your grocery shopping experience will be so much more enjoyable when you have a happy cashier.
- Check out all the current deals this week at CVS, Walgreens, Target, Publix, Kroger, Wal-Mart or Amazon.
- And, if you don’t have a coupon to your name (bless your heart!), you can start by printing a few over at Coupons.com, Red Plum, Coupon Network and Smart Source.
