C) want to save money on groceries and cut down on food expenses.
- With deal-shopping, LOSS-LEADERS ARE KEY.
- Once I find the amazing deals, I stock up on them using price-matching.
This is where convenience comes in. By price-matching at Wal Mart you take advantage of any other store's prices, without having to shop at multiple stores! So I get the loss-leader pricing of the other stores, all at Wal-Mart.
(Oh, and by stocking up I mean buying a reasonable amount of things that you plan to use in the somewhat-near future ((no one needs 40 tubes of toothpaste if you ask me…even if they are only $0.10!). If you have it around when you need it, you won't need to rush out and pay full-price for it in a pinch!)
produce, dairy, and meat.
- Once I take advantage of the good deals, I plan my week's meals around the items so they get used or store (or freeze) the surplus for another time.
I spend about 5-10 minutes “prepping” before I go shopping, do about 2 big shopping trips a month, and save like crazy. I'm too lazy to coupon, and frankly, I think I get healthier items for better deals WITHOUT using coupons. That's simply my opinion, though!
I plan to make a video soon of the literal “how-to's” of deal shopping, so I will get that posted soon. I hope you enjoy the article, I'm excited to share a bit of knowledge with the world!
