No matter what you spend at the grocery store each week, it's more than likely there's room to trim. If you don't know where to start, don't like clipping coupons, or simply want to save even more I may be able to help.
As a Baltimore stay-at-home mom who never planned to stop working after my daughter was born, I learned real fast how to save money on groceries (among other things) Now, yours truly has teamed up with the Enoch Pratt Free Library to offer a couponing workshop.
Couponing in a Changing Economy will focus on how to buy the groceries you want, but at the price you like with or without coupons. We'll discuss how and where to find coupons, how to save money without coupons, and how to pair store sales, deals, and coupons to get items for next-to-nothing, sometimes even free! I'll also share my step-by-step grocery planning, shopping, and saving routine that saves me between 40 and 50% off my grocery bill every week.
If you're like me, you've seen the original "Coupon Mom" who can get $300 worth of groceries for mere cents. Who wouldn't want to do that? I sure would, but with a toddler at my feet (and in my grocery cart tearing and coloring on my list while pooling boxes of granola bars of the shelves) it's simply not possible. While, like most shoppers, I could certainly save more at the grocery store, with the limited time I put into clipping coupons and planning weekly meals I'll take a 50% savings any day.
So if you're looking for realistic tips, tricks, and tried-and-true methods for busy moms (and even busier families) to save money on groceries join me for Couponing in a Changing Economy. The program will be held this Saturday, May 22 at 2pm in the auditorium at the Enoch Pratt Library Southeast Anchor Branch on Eastern Ave in Baltimore.
