Default What's the most creative thing you do to save money on your grocery bill?

Is this a tough question or what!

I found it while banging around Rachel Rays web-site.

I submitted my answer to this sweepstakes question. My answer was, I
get my coupons from the internet. This saves me time. I can search for
only the products I use (that's a lie, you still have to thumb through
sheets of stuff you don't buy) It gives me access to coupons you won't
find in magazines and newspapers.

I filled out the form, spent 20 mins constructing my answer, I hit the
submit button and all I got was a big 404 error page. grrrrr... I hit
the back button and all of my work was gone.

What is wrong with these people!

My solution to saving money on the grocery bill is that I send my kids
to the supermarket(with a list) instead of going myself.

Our creative thing is to avoid the kinds of products that are likely
to have coupons (well, except for the occasional TP coupon.) We shop
mostly the outer edges of the sto produce, fresh meat and seafood,
and dairy.

We dip into the rows for rice, beans, flour and dry pasta, but don't
buy enough of the other stuff to make coupons worthwhile.

We're lucky, though, because I'm at home all day, don't have much I
have to do for daily work, and love to cook from scratch.

BTW, "banging around Rachel Ray's" *anything* gives me pause. :-)

Back in my college/grad school days and while being unemployed, we'd
eat roadkill. Fresh roadkill, though. No skunks, though.

I don't find it tough at all. The most creative thing I do,
particularly when money is tight, is to allow myself one "luxury" item
each week. That way, I spend less, but don't feel so deprived.

of honey

I only buy sale items to stock the pantry.
Then, I do meal planning from the pantry stock.

Not alot you can do about fresh veggies/deli items.
Tho, when asparagus was .99/bunch, I bought
bagfuls and blanched/froze them.

Have you tried walking out backwards with a cart full of groceries, in the
style of Abbott and Costello? Only they were walking IN backwards.
