Save using Winn Dixie coupons, and BOGO’s and save your food stamps…
While food is quite expensive, and grocery dollars just do not stretch as far as they once did. The average family spends about 15% of their total income on buying food and the steady increase in prices keeps them from enjoying some of the simple things like eating out, the movies, and other entertainment outings that are essential to living well. This percentage will do nothing but increase over the next 5 years, as stats make this much clear. In such a scenario, coupons, food stamps can be somewhat heaven sent for those that struggle to maintain a household.
It seems hard to believe, but something so simple like buying food (groceries) has become quite expensive (not to mention when talking about large families) and many people are unaware of the existence of coupons for food, much less about the discounts that can be obtained by its use. In some cases they just choose not to use them. But I am here to tell you that coupons can save you real money, yes dollars in your hand.
Like anything, there are many different types of coupons, so you should be able to distinguish which can be useful and which not, the internet is a great source for coupons, but you must make sure that you are using a trusted site. For example, there are coupons that are valid only for purchase in some specific stores, and there are some stores that will take the competition’s coupons. This is something I always consider, because many of the items on sale in one store, may not be a sale item in another. Some of the supermarkets that accept competitors coupons are Publix, Winn Dixie, Target, and many others. If these stores have branches near your home, then it makes sense to get coupons from other supermarkets and use them to your full advantage.
Getting coupons for food is quite simple. Many of these coupons come with your newspaper, magazines and pamphlets that companies will mail right to your home, so don’t check the newspaper alone. You can also find them on the internet. Without doubt, the fastest way of finding the coupons you need exactly is through the online world. By a quick search you can find just about anything you need. For example, the other day I was going to purchase something at Michael’s Arts and Crafts store, and I went online and found a 40% off coupon on any item not already on sale. So just like that I saved 40% off the item priced at $39.99. The most impressive thing was that Michael’s took the coupon right from my smart phone. No paper coupon, no printing, nothing but savings. You can find different types of coupons to use at the local stores, supermarkets and retail chains.
With respect to the discount that you can earn using coupons, food stamps, and other savings codes, this depends very much on where the coupons/savings are issued. Typically discounts figures are in the 10-20% range, but like I shared above I saved 40% at Michael’s. It is rare to come across coupons that give you up to 50% off some products but they are out there, just search for them and use them to your savings heart delight. For the largest and juiciest discounts best thing to do is be vigilant and constantly register on stores websites, then frequent for new issued coupons and savings.
