What Was That Website?

Hi Moms, not too long ago a mom posted a request wondering how to cut grocery costs. One of the responses had a website that had a spreadsheet with all the weekly specials (ads) from various grocery stores. I thought I bookmarked it but somehow I didn't. Does anyone know the site? Thanks!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

Thank you all for getting me those sites! Groceries are such a huge chunk of our budget these days, and now that summer is here I have all three home for all three meals, it'll be an even bigger chunk. So here's to all the savings we can get, huh!

www.sistersavings.net and it's completely free. I print the spreadsheets and highlight the items I want, then go shopping at Walmart and price match. I usually go on Wednesdays so I can price match the double ad day at Sprouts, which has the best deals on produce. But lately I've been getting produce through a co-op at www.bountifulbaskets.com and that seems to be even cheaper and last me so long that I haven't gone to the store in a long time, except to grab a gallon of milk. The co-op also occasionally does more than produce, like bread, beans, granola, nut butters, and today there is a deadline for ordering 1/4 cow that is local and organic, grass-fed, etc. Speaking of which, I'm ordering a quarter cow (all nicely packaged and labeled), and I'm willing to split it with you if you're interested. It's a lot of meat for my family, but I love the concept. It's healthier and more ethical because the animal is treated very well. Here is where you can read about the price and what you get: http://www.bountifulbaskets.org/offeringinformation/beef....

couponmom.com, this shows you the deals on only Fry's grocery store and also a lot the drugstores around. Check out Vickysdeals too, it is a website that is dedicated to saving money. The ladies on there trade coupons, share their ideas to save money and where to get great deals.

couponsense.com, but you have to be a member. Monthly fees are $15.09/month, with tax, but totally worth it! I save MUCH more than $15/month using it!!! C.

I have been using www.thegrocerygame.com for a little over a month. It is free for the first month, then it costs $10 every 8 weeks for one grocery store +5 for additional stores. It lists what's on sale and what coupons to use, it even lists when the coupon was in the paper. I have heard about the sistersavings site but haven't checked it all out yet. So I couldn't say which is better, but it's always good to check out options!

I use a program/system called Coupon Sense. Their website is couponsense.com. I would recommend finding an instructor to help you learn how to use the system. It does have the ads and allows you to create a shopping list all the while it shows you what coupons go with the ad items.

I have 4 boys myself, ages 14, 13, 10, & 8, so I definately need the savings! I do save at least $20 a week using the system; although I don't use it like many do.

Good luck!

Hi S.!

The website is http://www.sistersavings.net/ and it is updated every Wednesday I believe. Just click on "Weekly Sales AZ" to get a list of all the grocery sales going on at Fry's, Albertson's, Bashas, Safeway, Sprouts, and Food City. (They even give you menu suggestions based on what's on sale) I always either print out the sale list or check the website before I go grocery shopping and it has helped me out a LOT.

You may also want to check out http://www.bountifulbaskets.org/ - it is a food co-op for fruits, veggies, bread, etc. that I've used as well and have liked. Good luck!! :)
