amazon prime pantry

Limited time only

Amazon Prime Pantry

Amazon Pantry can be a great way to find deals on food and household items. Occasionally they run specials, for instance: Buy 5 items in a specific category and save $6! What’s even better is the items are delivered directly to your home. How cool is that?

Coupons.com

Instead of cutting out traditional coupons one by one just print the ones you want. Search through the database and select your desired item, print them, and bring them to the store. You can find a lot of variety on coupons.com


Redplum

Another great site to find coupons. Print them before your upcoming grocery trip. TIP: If you don’t have a printer at home you can pay a small fee to print at your local library. Also, for those who live in apartment complexes or condos you can use your business center if it’s available to you.

Savings.com

 Similar to Coupons.com, you can print coupons before your upcoming shopping trip. Use the two coupon sites to find deals on the items you use often. It’s a great way to save.

Coupon Surfer

Coupon Surfer is another great option for those looking to print coupons before their upcoming shopping trip.

Thrive Market

A great online option for those who are looking to save on organic/healthy options for the family. Some items are cheaper than whole foods and other organic stores. It’s hard to find good deals in the health food market so this is a great site to check out. Plus, you can save 20% on your first 3 orders, and $49 purchases get you free shipping.

Other tips: 

Buy Frozen

Buying items frozen may be a turn off for some, but it’s a great way to reduce waste and in turn, save money. I often buy fruits and vegetables frozen because mine tend to go bad before I use them.

Buy Store brand items

Don’t buy the name brand items. Save a few bucks and go with the off-brand. In most cases, they taste the same and cost much less.

Buy in Bulk

With big box stores such as Sams or Costco, you can buy in bulk to save a little money. I find that it’s best to research your local prices before making purchases in bulk. Make sure that buying in bulk is really saving you money. Living in Hawaii I utilize Sams Club just to save money on gas, the savings with gas alone pays for the membership.

Leftovers

Eat leftovers the following day for either lunch or dinner (or both). It saves a lot on groceries, and you get to skip a day of cooking!

Sunday Paper

Just like mom used to do! On most Sunday’s you can find coupon inserts and clip out the coupons you want to use on your next shopping trip.
