How to get it on SALE--EVERY TIME
- Check grocery ads and store websites for sales and coupons.
- When you see an item advertised on sale, add it to your shopping list and stock up, making sure to note the brand, package size and cost.
If you have access to a computer, check for coupons online.
Caution: Most cents-off coupons offered by stores or manufacturers are for the more expensive, highly processed foods or for foods in abundant supply. Don’t use a coupon to justify buying a food that your family doesn’t need or that costs more than a store brand, even with the coupon savings.
Coupons are usually available for sugary snacks and convenience foods. Have you ever seen a coupon for apples or milk? Use coupons only for items you would normally buy.
