How do you save money like that?

We get asked this question quite often when people learn how much money we save on our grocery bill (usually 50-75% off regular prices). For us, saving money is driven partially by necessity and partially as a strange hobby of sorts. It does take TIME, however. You'll find that time and money are almost always a tradeoff, and it works that way with bargain-hunting, too.

Once you familiarize yourself with the terms, abbreviations and rules of the game, you'll find it's not difficult to reduce your spending.

If you don't already get the Sunday paper, you'll want to consider a subscription or make an effort to stop and purchase one or more every week. Even that is optional, however, as many coupons are now available in printable formats.

I'll try to regularly post the best grocery deals for Macomb area stores. In addition, I'll post freebies, drug store and online deals when they're good. Please feel free to ask questions or chime in - I don't have all the answers, but I'll do my best to help!

  1. "Strange hobby" LOL

    50 percent off regular retail price is pretty realistic if you take the time to shop this way.

    Many of us in southeast Michigan have more time than money these days, so you may as well take the time to do the coupon / rebate deals.

    Put the money you didn't spend at the grocery store toward another expense you can do nothing about.
