    I always read circulars, cut coupons, and usually follow a list. But to save the most money when I grocery shop, I leave my boyfriend at home. Big Grin That man has the worst impulse control ever. Our grocery bill is at least double when he comes along.

    I do the same as Roxy. I clip coupons, go to the supermarket website to see if there are store coupons (both Whole Foods and HEB have printable store-only coupons online)

    Oh, and always eat before going grocery shopping... NEVER grocery shop on an empty stomach!

    It would be nice if WholeFoods had products to use coupons on. Big Grin

      Whole Foods posts coupons on their website at . They carry many items for which manufacturer's coupons are issued, like Annie's Homegrown products, Barbara's Bakery, Burt's Bees, and Seventh Generation - just to name a few.

      You can use the Udi's coupon you posted at Whole Foods Market. Wink

    I agree with Roxy, there are certain people you never take along when grocery shopping. My son is one of them! Big Grin

    I watch for BOGO's that I use and then look to see if I have a coupon. I don't stockpile but I do try to look for bargains. I take a monthly trek to Whole Foods to buy my Mayo and some other things that Publix, Target & WalMart don't carry. When I go to Whole Foods I print out their coupons first. I plan other stops so I am not wasting my gas on one trip.
