One of the ways in which God leads in the area of finances is spending the financial resource He gives us wisely. There are many reasons for this, but two of the main ones that we have always focus on are; this allowing to save more money when those accidentals come up, (which ALWAYS do!!) as well as being able to give to and serve others through our these resources.
Unfortunately, the cost of living is just plain expensive and once we paid off our major debt we focused in on saving money in many other areas of our household budget, especially, groceries!
I have made the mistake of trying to shave TOO much off my grocery budget and that has left me feeling defeated and frustrated! So, I have become more realistic about it and follow the old $25 per person, per week rule, adding $30 a week on for pet and household supplies and toiletries. The original rule is actually $20 per person, however, since I am home with kids for three meals a day, my husband often packs his lunch as well as my son, I add $5 more per person, per week.
In a week I try to stay around $160 for everything from food to laundry soap. In order to do this, I try to take advantage of the local sales and coupon deals.
I am going to share with you some of the great deals I have found this week as well as how I go about using them!
Dollar Generals are almost everywhere and often have great deals! Recently, I found out that they have this handy little perk called digital coupons. All you have to do is look up Dollar General digital coupons online, fill out the information form, click on the coupons you want to use and get prepared to save! The information form will ask for your cell number. When you are ready to check out, on the pin pad there will be an digital coupon icon to push, it will ask for your mobile number, it will then deduct all the coupons she chose off your total! No cutting out coupons, no sorting! I love it!
HyVee also has some great ways to save. Most people are familiar with their fuel saver card. Aside from it helping you to save on gas, you can also load digital coupons onto your fuel saver card by downloading the HyVee app on your phone. When the cashier scans your fuel saver card, your coupons will be deducted off your total!
I still print paper coupons off of coupons.com as well. Some great sites to look on for coupons are Money Saving Mom and Krazy Koupon Lady.
Here are the deals I found this week.....
DOLLAR GENERAL DIGITAL COUPON DEALS
SO, that means if you wen today, including your $2 off $10 purchase coupon, you would only spend $15.55 cents on all of these items! If you went Saturday and got $5.00 off $25.00, as they normally take the $5 off first and then the other coupons, you would only spend around $12.55 on all of this!!
