What day do you find is the best day to do your shopping? I am new to the coupon world. I prefer to do my shopping during the week rather than the weekends when the family is home. Is there a weekday that is better to shop? I find myself putting off shopping until the last possible moment. Before couponing I was waited until we were nearly out of everything. Now I wait until I better run or the sale will end.
How do you do your shopping.? Do you make one trip for your bargain / coupon shopping and a 2nd trip for your grocery list or do you do everything one time. I'm still juggling this whole coupon thing. Hopefully, I will get better. I am loving getting the good deals specially the FREE ones but I think I make it way more of a job than it has to be. It seems to take me forever to gather and organize all of my coupons and make a plan. I'm the type of girl who wants to run in get my list and be out of there. I definitely do not want to run into ten people and chit chat. I'm on a mission after all. Can you tell shopping is not my favorite thing to do.
What about goofy things you do in the name of a deal or coupon. This past week I had a Kellogg's coupon for $1 off of 3 boxes of fruit loops or cereal. Fruit Loops was the cereal I was buying. Pub lix had it BOGO...OK y'all this makes me feel so dumb. I bought only 3 boxes of cereal. I was so focused on the $1 off I forgot to get my free box. Boy was I mad at me when I realized what had happened.
Tips for Shopping Success
*remember your list
*plan your meals ahead of time and around what is on sale
*remember your coupons , take a minute to organize them with your list
* go at non busy times of day (I prefer to go during the week in the early morning, some people like really late evening)
