Crazy Coupon Freak,Part 3

The third and most powerful step to successful coupon use is called building a food storage or stockpile. When a great deal is found, buy in bulk. This is why accumulating multiple coupons is necessary. Buying a lot of one thing at a great price can lead to never having to pay full price again. For example, buying six months of cereal at a great price means cereal will not need to be purchased again until you run out. This can be done with many food items and most household goods.

By combining sale prices with coupons I NEVER pay more than $1 for a box of cereal. Other things that I have been able to purchase have the store give me free or next to free: laundry soap, dish soap, bath soap, dog food, bread, produce, deodorant, tooth brushes & paste, shampoo, pasta, toilet paper, baby wipes, baking mixes, pickles, salty snacks, razors, condiments and more more more....These are NAME BRANDS!!! The key is: when the price is low STOCK UP!!!!

Sherri, that's awesome that Matt was in the papper, what a proud wife you must be! I gotta hop on this coupon band wagon, I read your blog and feel like I'm just throwing money away.

I do that too. I'm not quite as religious on the coupons, but I always stock up on the bogo deals.

I am just starting in with the coupons thing - i get 3 Sunday newspapers, and check the sales at grocerysmarts.com

but I don't feel like I'm using them the best ... do you think it's better to cut everything up?
