This weeks Grocery Game Challenge is all about coupons. Every Thursday evening the flyers arrive at our door and we sit down to take a look at what’s on sale for the week. Although we don’t actually figure out what we will buy until Sunday (this is the day we set aside one hour to do coupon match-ups and our shopping list) we like to make sure we are organized to cut down on time spent on this task. One way is by utilizing not only the flyers but coupon match-ups which are completed weekly by my mate at Save Big Live Better.
I thought it would be a great idea to post Save Big Live Better’s Weekly Coupon Match ups here for you to design your shopping list. Once you have your grocery budget for the week and your coupons you are now ready to rock and roll. I find the match up list easy to use and saves us alot of time, and time is money right? The Grocery Game Challenge runs Mon-Sunday each week so the match-ups will reflect what’s on sale in that flyer rotation.
So hopefully the coupon match up I add weekly to The Grocery Game will help you like it helps us! Come back after your weekly shop and post what you spent along with your coupon savings. You can read The Grocery Game rules Here and play along with me all year-long. You can also WIN a Monthly Prize. In April we congratulated Nicola Don who contributed and WON our Monthly Coupon Prize Pack… it’s that easy to Play,Save and WIN... (PSW)
Our shop this week will be low we hope as we don’t need too much.
