How Often Do You Grocery Shop?
I have become somewhat of a price expert when I grocery shop. Junior (my husband) and I go to four different stores, and buy their sales. I never, ever pay full price for meat. I only buy what is marked down, or if it is a really good sale. For instance, my favorite meat is London Broil, but I hardly ever buy it, because it is expensive. This month, a local store had it on sale, so I bought a couple. Ground beef and chicken are easy to find on sale, so I always have those in my freezer as well.
I learned a long time ago from my mom to always watch the register as things ring up. It seems like every time I shop, there are mistakes. It's easier to have them fixed before paying than after, so I watch closely.
I recently started clipping coupons, and they do save some money, but I still find buying the store brand is usually cheaper. Most things I am not too picky about, and there are even a few things I like better in the store brand.
Not beans, though. I am a stickler for Bush's.
