Welcome to the second major series of posts on Frugal Made Fun! Each week, I'll post 1-2 tips on how to develop your own plan to save money on groceries. I'm going to start with some of the most basic, easiest things you can do to save money, and then progress from there. You can take as much or little advice as you like. As the series progresses, a little more work may be involved, but you will definitely save more money.
Shop at stores that allow you to use multiple coupons on the same items. Some stores allow you to use a store coupon with a manufacturer's coupon on the same item...when combined with a sale this can mean free or close to free items!
A few common stores that accept multiple coupons on the same item are CVS, Publix, Walgreens, and Rite Aid. Some stores require that you have at least as many items as you do coupons. And sometimes stores will put out coupons that *look* like store coupons (i.e. they say "Publix" or "CVS" on them but they may also say "Manufacturer Coupon" somewhere on them so be sure to double check before you try to combine coupons!
