I have some fantastic advice to share...

For the last 2 years, hubby and I have been using the Grocery Game.  The savings are INCREDIBLE!!!  Yes, you have to clip coupons and keep them organized and it's a little bit of work, but so worth it!  We pay about $20 per month for the list on 3 stores in our area and we spend $300 or less per month on groceries.  And our pantry and fridge is always STOCKED!!  If we didn't use this system, we would be paying twice as much (maybe even more) for all the food we have.

what exactly is "the grocery game?"


I realy want to learn more about this, but certaintly not take it to the extreme as I saw on the TLC show. I am a control freak though with a bit of OCD when it comes to organizing.

Really?  Do tell, do tell.  Our budget will be changing (hopefully) within the next six months, as we are putting an offer on our first home next week, so I am looking for different ways to cut back.

We do Target, King Soopers, and Safeway in our area...


If you decide to join, please PM me for my info as I do earn credits for referrals... but I'm not just telling you to tell you, it really is amazing and so worth it!


The gist of the whole thing is this company basically tracks the sales trends at stores and coordinates with coupons coming in the newspaper or in store ads.  They tell you exactly what to buy when, and when to use the coupons to get the most savings.  It is amazing.  And yes, you will be that annoying person in the grocery store line who takes forever because you have so many coupons.  But as soon as you see that you "saved" more than you even spent on the bottom of that receipt, you will be so pleased.  So let those full price paying a-holes give you nasty looks all they want!! LOL

That sounds very interesting and definitely something I would like for DH and I to sign up for.  We are hopefully going to be moving soon, so I will wait until we get our house, but Allie, I will definitely be in touch with you to get that.  I would LOVE to be that person with all the coupons.  LOL.
