Just wondering where do everyone get their grocery.
As for me, I shop at walmart, price chopper, aldi, tops, whichever has better deal.
Recently, I also start using coupon and have noticed I can actually save some money!!!  :thumbsup:
I just started to go to a site called    mrsjanuary.com    it has coupons and other ideas on lifestyle. Yes we shop at the same stores
We do?! Wow... maybe we live in the same area?! :)

I have been using coupons now for almost a year. I have a spare bedroom in my house with shelves and shelves off groceries and soaps/detergents/ paper towels. Two weeks ago I went to the grocery store my total was $176 after my coupons my total was $24.53! I will never pay full price for an item. There is no need to! Yes it is a lot of work! I enjoy it though ad it is definetly worth it!!!

I wont have to buy deodorant or toothpaste for at least 3 years if not more! I have 38 rolls of paper towels. I could go on and on.

I can't even begin to describe what it has done for my family!
Definetly saved a lot of money!!

After I start using coupon. I recognized no need to buy toothpaste and floss cuz you can actually get them for free.
Deodorants, body wash, and personal items such as pads or pantyliners can actually be very low price.
Supplements only get them when they are buy 1 get 1 free.
As for food, buy them when they are on sale and put all in freezer which can keep the food a little bit longer.
During this hard time, I guess just have to do what we can do to go through and save as much money as we can.
Have fun shopping and saving as much as we can!!!

I shop Jewel in chicago. I wish there were grocery stores in illinois that doubled and tripled coupons. Nobody in illinois does it!

WOW!

Where are you shopping?!?

We've got Kroger nearby, but they only double coupons $.50 and under.  It's a shame because this is a very economically depressed area, and people could really benefit from doubling coupons. I remember reading on one of the couponing blogs someone saying it seems like the areas that could use doubling the most are the areas that don't double.

I buy my produce  from a produce stand  and my meat from the local butcher shop.  The rest of groceries from  my local supermarket which doubles the coupons

I shop mostly at Kroger, I do use coupons only when the product is also on sale.

So for the people who admit to being extreme couponers, I must ask, do you actually pay for the 10-15 newspapers to get the ads, do you get them from your family members, are you someone that goes to the self serve stand put in your coins and take all the papers (STEALING!)? :wave:

We do the majority of our shopping at Super Walmart. We use coupons and we also price match other stores sales. On occasion we shop at Kroger and Albertsons if they are having a buy one get one free type of sale because Walmart won't price match those.

I went to a coupon work shop last night and learned alot.  I am going to start using coupons and see what I can do.  It is amasing how much money can be saved when using coupons.  I have never used them before.  I am excited about this.  Came home and printed a lot of coupons off internet.  I am sure I won't need them all but there were some I could use.  I hope everyone has good results with them.  Everyone have a good day.  And God Bless you.
