Don't think you have the time to cut coupons or search for dinners? Think it's too much work for not a big enough reward? (I'll talk with you about that later!) But for now, know that you can STILL save money on groceries. There's a resource lurking right around the corner that you may not be aware of- the clearance rack!
WHAT?!? A clearance rack at a grocery store!?! I know, surprised, right? At the back of many stores, kind of hidden in the hallway to the "employees only" area, there is often a section of items that are marked down because the boxes and cans are dented. Last week, we found a jumbo pack of diapers there for $3.00! It wasn't opened, not squished- we gladly took it! At another store, I found McCormick spices marked down to a quarter! and not expired or dented or anything! I snatched up all they had :)
Some places are lucky enough to have whole stores devoted to selling dented merchandise. I haven't found one in Lincoln. (If you know of one, please tell!) But I have found good deals at Alps (27th and Y). This is a great place to consistently purchase generic items for less. They often have brand name items, too. I am also loving the Bread Outlet at 48th and Old Cheney. You can get bread that's marked at about half the price of the grocery store. Yesterday they had too much bread and marked it all at $1.00 per loaf. They have mostly Sara Lee and Earthgrains products.
So, those are some ways to save money on your grocery bill without cutting a single coupon. :) Have any other ideas for me? Check out other tips at Works For Me Wednesday.
