I did both the Grocerygame and SavingsAngel. You only save money if you buy the things that the coupons are for and you really stock up. My grocery shopping style does not fit. I don't like buying premade/boxed/bagged meals, sugar/salt laden snacks. My son may have a sensitivity to food additives/preservatives/dyes/BHT ect. so reading labels are important and being in an apartment I can't fit large quantities of the stuff I would buy like toothpaste. It doesn't include fresh produce or milk ect.
Good luck.

I have not used that, but wondered if you have heard of Angel Food Ministries. This Ministry is open to everyone. This Ministry sells approximately $70.00 worth of groceries for only $30.00. There are local host sites all over the United States.
Their website is www.angelfoodministries.com.
(We have nine children, and using this ministry has cut our food budget in half!)
Blessings,

I haven't but I will check it out. I do use www.savingsangel.com It sounds like it might be the same thing. You get either a two week free trial, or one month free when yuou purchase one month. I love it, and save all kinds of $. I don't have time to follow the sales myself, and it tells you what is on sale where, and where to find the coupons you need. It also lists things in a percentage value of amount saved. I save over 50% on my shopping bill, usually more like 65% to 70%. And if you do check it out, use my referral code, it is: 6001 Happy shopping!

I signed up for the free trial. I had a stack of coupons. And in the month that I had the service, I never saved a dime! To really see savings you need to hoard supplies. Meaning if BBQ is on sale now, you buy it and save it till you need it. Well BBQ might not need replacing for months.

You are supposed to stockpile your items and that's really how the savings start to happen. That doesn't work for my shopping style or family. Also we don't have the space in our kitchen to stockpile groceries for many months.

The trial used to be free or something like $1. Give it a try and see if it works for you.

I am not sure where you live, but if you can purchase a set of Debbie Myers Green Bags for fruits & veggies that will help reduce your grocery cost. A set of bags is 9.99 and there are 20 bags. Each bag is reusable 20 times - so doing the math, that's about 5 cents a bag!

Furthermore, if you can begin shopping at discount stores for your groceries, that will help save some money. Sav A Lot and Aldi are the 2 I frequent. You may be purchasing an off brand of food, but to some that doesn't matter. I also try to buy things that are only on sale when I don't go to the discount stores.

Hi there. I do the "grocerygame" and I buy a lot of groceries for 10 to 15 dollars. I only buy the stuff that is on the stock up color (their list is color coded). I also go to the Kroger on Corunna road because they double up to $1.00 on all coupons. But remember they change policies so you need to watch for that. Also, the Kroger they use in the game assumes doubling to $.50, and the ads/sales can vary per store. I had trouble doing it at meijer, because I don't think that meijer marks their sales(on the aisles) clearly and I was constantly getting to the check out only to find out that I had picked up the item that wasn't on sale althought the sign was in front of what I picked up. Good luck. Also, I still bought the things that I needed for regular, at Walmart where it was cheaper if it wasn't on the color code.

Yes, I use it. I did the $1 trial with Kroger and Meijer, then went to just Meijer after that. It takes a few weeks to accumulate your coupon stock to see the full savings, and you have to shop for what is on sale, not just what you need right now. I think it is great, and I have gotten some things for free~ on sale for $1, then $1 coupon, so I just paid sales tax. E-mail me with questions... [email protected]____.com, or I would be grateful for the referral credit if you don't have one~!

yes for nearly 2 years now. As some have said you can take the extra time to figure things out for yourself but it is extremely cheap for what it saves you(time and money). I haven't paid for things such as toothpaste,toothbrushes, shampoo/conditioner(We like Herbal Essence or L'oreal Vive), deodorant, soap, cleaners, etc. in at least a year. Things like feminine needs I pay about $.50 for. For food I get things here and there free but mostly at around a 70% savings. I suggest you go to their website and check out the message boards and ask you questions there(the boards are free to use). Sign up for the 4 weeks free and see if it works for you. Remember to sign up for all the available stores in the free trial!

HI! I tried it about a month ago. It looked really easy on TV but when I signed up,it seemed to be more time consuming than cutting out coupons and reading the sales papers myself. Maybe I didn't give it a good shot or maybe I am stupid but it was to time consuming and a little confusing to have to pay for the service. Sign up for the trail period and let me know what you think. Maybe I didn't follow instructions.
Good luck!

I used it for a couple of months and once I got the hang of it I canceled it. Its really an easy thing to do. Cut coupons every week and than watch the adds. I only buy items that we need/use and dont stockpile like the website says you should do. The key is to match up your coupons with items that go on sale. We definitly save more than normaly would since learning how to do this. Good Luck!!!

Hi,

I saw Teri on an infomercial explaining how the game works and they actually followed her to the grocery store. So it's pretty easy to understand. Did I join, no way. If you understand how the game works, why give her your hard earned money, take the time to do it yourself. But if you don't have the time, then I guess it's would be a good investment.

When I tried her method, I spent $160 in grocery and only paid $63 :)

Good Luck!
