I enjoy being able to work with families to help them find groceries for 50%-70% off. Â When I do show folks how to get these products, I generally ask how many theyâ€™d like to buy. Â Most people are savvy enough to answer, â€œas much as I can use before they expire.â€ Â I love hearing this as this means they are building a safety net for their family – ensuring that they can avoid paying retail for that product over the next few months.
I regularly hear the question, however, as to when someone should stock up on certain products. Â We have a fabulous community at SavingsAngel.com and one of our Angels on Staff, Michelle (aka grnmom) maintains a list of stock up prices on some popular products. Â Once you have a nice pantry at home, I would also consider these to be the highest prices you should ever pay for these products. Â If you arenâ€™t actively shopping with your Sunday coupons, prepared to be amazed as youâ€™re about to see how youâ€™ve been losing hundreds of dollars a month.
