Your local stores give out sales ad fliers regularly and you should be alert for the brands and items that are featured on sale. When you see B1G1, B1G1F or BOGO, it means you can buy 1 item and take one home Free. A Peelie is a kind of coupon on the package of the product you buy for peeling off. Understand the basic terminologies for discounts and coupons will save you a lot of money.

Planning meals ahead will prevent you from shopping on impulse when you get to the supermarket. Planning for the whole week in advance will prevent you from dashing off to the store in the middle of the week, using up your valuable time and your extra budget. Stick to your plan, unless the ingredient you were counting on is out of stock which rarely happens in this modern day and age.

Be familiar with your neighborhood store so that you do not miss any good deals. Find out if they accept double coupons or have discount cards for loyal customers. Some neighborhood stores have their own version of store discounts and coupons which you can take advantage of. Many stores also have a rewards system where you can accumulate points for frequent shopping.

Knowing the rules of the store you go to regularly will enable you to combine all the special offers, discounts and coupons so you end up paying the lowest possible prices for the goods you purchase. Although some stores do not allow using coupons when the products are offered on a “buy one, get one free” scheme, there are special cases of overstocking and they will allow any kind of coupon deal just to clear up space in the stockroom or warehouse for new arrivals.

In many cases, the Sunday newspaper is loaded with grocery discounts and coupons. Buying two or three copies of the newspaper when the coupons featured are for items you regularly use will pay for the newspaper expense and save you a lot of money. There are also printable coupons on the store’s own website or the website of your favorite brands.
