One of my favorite words on a coupon is ANY. That is right. The word any provides me with the least amount of restrictions.

When using coupons, do not make your decisions based by the pictures on the coupons. Instead, use the description of the words on the coupons. Based on the marketing techniques, the higher priced items most likely are shown, tantalizing you to make that purchase.

Food City is running two specials this week. One of my favorites is Midnight Madness.

This is a great week to stock up on the chicken and chuck roast at $3.99 pound. Food City has a large selection of buy one get one free on their brand name products. Additionally, Food City and Food Lion have their Mix or Match Event Sale. You must buy five selected items to save $5.

Kroger is having the event sale buy five and save $5. With these, you can mix and match as long you purchase five of the event items. This coming Sunday, several coupons will match up with Kroger’s event sale.

Remember, as you save money, make sure you take advantage of the 52-week money saving plan. This is the eighth week of the year. Place $8 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $36 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
