    I love your list. I usually shop with a list, but if I forget it and ‘wing it’, I always spend more. Great TT and happy Thursday!

    Great list. I keep saying I’m gonna get more organized about our shopping/cooking…. but it just hasn’t happened yet. Someday….

    I agree…but there are some things you shouldn’t buy the generic of. Razor blades. I can tell you from painful experience.

    I especially LOVE Rainchecks! It’s kind of like your own private sale – they don’t expire and you can wait to use them until a great coupon pops up!

    I shop with a budget and a calculator. I have a set dollar amount in my mind and will not go over that amount no matter what. I deduct the cost of each thing I buy (Added tax and rounding up in my head!) and when it’s gone, it’s gone. I never go over my budget that way and usually I’m under because I have coupons. :)

    Great list! Meal planning is crucial- so many people miss this. I do mine for the week ahead before my weekly grocery shopping- so I can plan off the sales and specials. Save even more. My fave tip is coupons though- I’m addicted!

    Lots of great tips. It also helps me to shop less, find stores that honor all competitors’ ads by matching their prices, and never shop hungry!
