I'm saving money in this economy by being more aware of sales and matching coupons to them.

I save money by buying only what I need with a coupon on sale when at all possible. I have learned to cut back on using water, electricity, etc when not needed.

We've started looking carefully at sales and coupons, and planning our menu around what is on special. We're also getting some of our dry goods in bulk and saving a lot that way.

Julieh said...

I don't buy anything unless it is on sale or I have a coupon.

makeetis said...

My family has cut out eating out. We may do it once a month now. I have been only buying things that I know will make a good meal with some leftovers for later. Things like chilli, spaghetti, and things like that.

Debi said...

I am using my coupons more, I make sure to take them with me when ever I know I am going to a store and I too watch the sale papers and compare.
But even with that, I have tryed to cut down on buying and stretch things out.
Thanks for the contest :-)

tatertot374 said...

I would love to win. We really are trying to cut corners at the grocery store. We try to buy all we can from local farmers and use lots of coupons with sales at the store.
Thank you for the chance

Vanessa said...

We've cut out eating out as much as possible. Instead were preparing fancier meals at home that end up costing about $7 compared to $35-$50 eating out. Also, I'm going to ALDI and picking up a few things at other stores that they don't carry. We can get a lot more for our money and don't go crazy shopping because there are less choices. Oh, and I have been clipping coupons a lot more too.

Wherever the kids need to be driven, I run the errands I can run that are near where they are to save gas. I use my crockpot a WHOLE lot more because then I can buy cheaper cuts of meat

We are actually cutting down our snacking and soda drinking. We are drinkings tons of more water and are eating less, which makes less trips to the store. We are also cutting down on impulse buys, which help a lot!

I've tried to cut corners by eliminating unnecessary expenses (such as downgrading my cell phone, cable, and internet service plans) and rediscovering the world of discount clothing and grocery stores to save a bit more money each month. And, of course, coupon clipping is an extra failsafe plan to add a little cushion to my budget!
