Value Whore

Yes I said it, I'm a Value Whore!

Want to know how I get the great deals I get?

Wal-Mart Price match is my friend. Most weeks I spend about 10 minutes perusing the grocery ads from various stores (don't forget to look up the ethnic stores ads!) A working knowledge of spanish (or korean) could be helpful here, but I stumble through and survive anyway.
I make a quick list and leave with a shopping cart of healthy food for around $40. I also leave a trail of people who are pissed off that I held up the line for 2.5 minutes and they are paying $100 for the same stuff!

Another key is to combine coupons, sales and gift card deals when the stars are lined up just so.

An example:

Fusioin razors on sale for $6.99 each with a $5 gift card back when buy 2. Use 2 $4 off coupons and you net out at 50 cents for a razor that usually costs $9.

At any store you can  manufacturer's coupons with register rewards or Extra Care Bucks  or store coupon deals to "make money". You can use these money maker deals to pay for stuff you usually can't get a deal on like milk, eggs, or meat.

Use free item coupons to meet the minimum purchase requirements to use store coupons. Market street puts great free item coupons every week (free milk, eggs, bacon, chicken, paper towels etc.) with a minimum $10 purchase. I almost always have $4 or $5 worth of free item coupons to use towards my $10 minimum purchase.

Here are some of the resources I use daily to make sure I miss out on as little as possible.

The Coupon Clippers

I order my coupons from The Coupon Clippers and Ebay.  No need to spend lots of money buying papers. Just buy the coupons you think that you will use every couple of weeks.

I also print coupons from Coupons.com, Red  Plum and Smart Source. You can load coupons on your store shopping cards at Cell Fire and Shortcuts too.

MoneySavingMom.com is also a life saver. She posts the best of the best deals and freebies that I don't have time to find on my own.
