How to save money on your groceries and supplies when you live in a rural area.
Where I live, the only choices for shopping are the dollar store, our local grocer, and walmart. About an hour away I can shop at walgreens, harps, target and kroger. An hour away in a vehicle that has no a/c can be very taxing when you have a 2 yr old! However, if I am going anyway I make sure I get my list ready along with my coupons and ads. Let's not forget about savings cards too! Lots of ways to save when I can get into the bigger towns. But I'm here today to talk about how to save at your local stores. I recently found out just what ads our local walmart will price match on. Boy was I suprised when they told me they honor the ads from the stores I listed above from the nearby bigger town! Next time your in walmart, ask someone at the customer service desk or simply ask your cashier like I did. I can now benefit from the ads that target, krogers, harps, walgreens, dollar general, family dollar, freds and a few more that I can't remember! Another way to save is to match your coupons with the ads, and have walmart honor the ad. I shop at our local grocer for anything I need that is on sale for the week. For example, our local grocer (Thriftway) is offering a 4lb bag of the best choice sugar for only $1 when you purchase $25. Since I need a couple of other items I seen in the ad, I don't think I'll have a problem getting my bag of sugar for a buck. The key is to know what you need, hopefully find a coupon for it, match that product to an ad if you can. I try to go to the Thriftway on Saturday's, since that's the only day they double coupons (up to 50 cents) but the do a stamp saving program that helps on the price of milk, eggs, bread, icecream, and water. In closing, I want to say thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog and listening to me ramble on about saving!~Michelle
