  2. I save money by using coupons when I grocery shop. I also buy only what is on sale that week and what is needed for meals. I can feed a family of four on thiry dollars a week very easily.

  3. I make a list and stick to it to avoid impulsive buys.

  4. My best frugal tip is that I do a lot of shopping online and before purchasing, I do a search on prices for that item and I also look to see if there is any coupon/discount codes available for the store.
    Thanks so much.

Some of the things we're doing right now to save money is: we're doing the BP Thank You Days rewards program - we've gotten $30 in gift cards from BP; every three or four months I email the companies of our favorite products and request coupons; and I participate in rewards programs like MyPoints, Swagbucks, and Irazoo.

  151. I always use a grocery list, I always use coupons, and I always read the circulars online before I go. Sometimes I see items on clearance that are a better deal, so I cross some things off my list and get the clearance items instead. I save about $5000 each year just by being diligent and paying attention to what I am doing.
