Prepare to Shop-Becoming a Savvy Shopper Part 2

Now that you have become a Savvy Shopper, you should be organized and ready to go shopping!!

Creating a List: Once you have subscribed to The Grocery Game, you can start your list making! (Samples below are directly from Teri's List)
  • Log in
  • Next to each grocery/drug store you will see a link that says "TERI'S LIST" and open it
  • At the top of the list she has directions about how to read the list.
  • The big things to note are:

Green Items:
FREE! (Plus Applicable Sales Tax) Bold Text
Blue Items:
Best deals for stockpiling! Italic Text
Black Items:
Buy these only if you need them Normal Text

  • This is the top of the list. To view this list, my preference is to view "GROUP LIST ITEMS BY COLOR." This shows all of the items in order of color. When I first started I shopped all colors, now that my stockpile is large, I now really only shop blue and green items.
  • I recommend print the entire list the fist time that you go through it! I find that it helped the first few times to make sure you understand the different column. Highlight as you go the items that you are going to get.
  • After you get the hang of it, you can then check the box (all the way to the right) on the items you plan to get! And then when you have finished you select "SHOW ONLY SELECTED ITEMS"
  • Make sure to take this list with you to the grocery store because you want to make sure the items are actually on sale for the price listed. Sometime items are incorrectly marked.
    When I first started, I didn't realize that some sales are select items only. I made the mistake of not taking my list and actually bought some items that were not on a good sale. So just make sure to check that you have your list!!
  • When shopping watch to see how many items you have to buy to get the deal. Some sales you must buy the specific amount to get the deal or some coupons might give a specific amount of items.
  • In order to go to the store organized, I print off my list with the selected items I am going to buy. I then go through my coupons and place them in a note card sized expandable file (see below) according to the stores that I am going to. This helps when at the store to just pull out my list and my coupons instead of digging through my entire book for every item.

  • I always make sure to take my coupon binder with me!!! There are always extra items that we all put into our cart and most of the time there is a coupon to match!
  • One tip...just because you have a coupon for a name brand item that is not on sale does not mean that it is cheaper than the store brand.
  • Always make sure to take the store ad with you!!!
So...that seems to be all of the basics to get you into the stores!!! If there is anything that is unclear, please leave a comment and I will answer any questions I can!

Shopping Spree

So this week I was trying to spend as little as possible and get the essentials.

Store #1- Walmart
I headed out to Walmart first thing the morning to see if I could get a Mr. Potato Head for $1.99 with the price match from Toys R Us doorbuster deal and a coupon (thanks Stretching a Buck!!). I took my printed ad and headed right for customer service and spoke with a manager and ended up getting one for my little guy for Christmas! I am so excited! While there, I picked up some dog food, milk and eggs. Total OOP $15

Store #2-Walgreens
Later in the day, when both boys were down, I headed out again to Walgreens very excited about some great deals! I just love going to my Walgreens store! They are so nice to me even though I use LOTS of coupons. I have an ongoing joke with the cashiers and the managers know when I walk in the door! They are just wonderful!! So, My husband needed his prescription refilled and since it was filled at a different pharmacy last, I was able to transfer it back to Walgreens. I was so excited this morning when the mail came because there was a check from Walgreens for a transfer prescription for $25!!! So off I went to be a happy shopper!! Since this was a check, it has to be used all in one transaction, so I tried to stock up on things that I normally would not buy or are more expensive in order to reach the $25! Here is what I came away with.

18 boxes Kleenex (raincheck)(free + overage)
6 boxes Keebler crackers (free)
3 boxes Cheez-It (free)
3 boxes Keelber cookies (free)
4 Airwick air fresheners (free)
1 Aussi Conditioner $2 OOP ($2 RR)
3 Lubiderm Lotions $2.37 OOP ($8 RR)
2 Pedialyte $5 OOP ($3 in coupon savings!!!)
1 Quilted Northern $3 OOP
Trash Bags $4.99 OOP
Baking Soda $?
Animal Crackers $?
All of the Halloween items were 75% off. I found several items that did not look like Halloween that I picked up for gifts and stocking stuffers!
3 Jump-ropes with gum $.74 ea
5 Candy Cars $.32 ea
1 Candy wistle $1.?
6 Sports ball lollipops $.32 ea

After all of this and my $25 transfer prescription check, I paid out of pocket $.90

I was so excited about this deal!!!! For the extra items that I purchased I did have coupons for most of them to help get more for my money!!

One of the managers at this store told me something about coupons that gave me an "Ah-ha" moment! He said that "coupons are like cash." I never viewed coupons as cash. I always feel that cashiers view them as such an inconvenience. But at this Walgreens they view all coupons as cash and do not give me a hard time at all when using them! I heart Walgreens!
$.90 OOP
$100 Savings including transfer check!!

Store #3-Albertsons
I had to pick up some Sargento Cheese with the raincheck from their last sale when it was 5/$5! I took along my $.40 off assuming I would get face value for it since they are not doubling coupons, but as I was checking out all of the coupons were doubled. The managers said some coupons double and some do not, all of the time!!! It was not an advertised double deal week, but it will double some coupons!! It was so worth the try! 6 bags of cheese for $2 OOP!!!

Store #4-Safeway
2 Pkgs. Huggies $9.99
Use in store coupon (ends 11/21) $7.99
Use $2 Mnf. coupon
Use cellfire and shortcut coupons
final price varies with ecoupons =Average $4.50 per package

I had a raincheck for the Nivia Lipcare when it was $1 and since they have been out of stock since that sale they allowed me to use my $1 coupon even though it was expired. So I picked up 6 of them and used my Mnf. Coupon for the 2 Free Nivia Body Lotion with purchase of 3 Lipcare. So 6 Lip products and 2 Lotions=FREE!!
I also had a Safeway printed coupon for $2 off any MomtoMom product. So the wipes were priced at $1.99 so they were FREE!!

OOP for the entire picture was $4.77!!! that was a 94% Savings!!!

This week the Nivia Lipcare is BOGO so combined with the Mnf. BOGO you can get 2 Free and for every 3 you get use your Free Lotion Mnf. Coupon!!!

This was an awsome week!!!!! I was so happy with how little I spent out of pocket!!!!

P.S. sorry this is such a novel. I am so excited about all my good deal, I cannot stop talking about it!! Thanks to my wonderful hubby who helped with the boys all day!!!
