Saving Big On Groceries--Your Turn

We're running a series on how one expert saves tons of money, but we want to know what your tips are.

You may be following our series on WITN News at Sunrise about  Grocery Shopping Secrets.  We are profiling one expert shopper who paid just $24 for $117 of groceries when we shopped with her at Harris Teeter in Fuquay-Varina (she lives in Clayton).  One of the parts of Faye Prosser's system that I like is she doesn't just shop at Harris Teeter; she says shopping at Food Lion and Kroger also have great deals for the taking. 

One person who commented on the story was quick to point out that coupon services cost money.  They are correct.  That is part of the story that airs all this week on WITN News at Sunrise.  Prosser maintains, if you do it the right way with good planning and strategy, that, too, will save you money. 

Some people have told me they have saved tremendous amounts of money on groceries.  I have a close friend who, once she started staying home from work with her children, planned her meals and shopping so professionally that she saved hundreds. 

We're hearing from the expert this week, so let's hear from you.  What do you do to save money?  Or, what questions do you have about the system we're talking about during WITN News at Sunrise this week?  You can follow along with the story as it updates on witn.com's homepage.

    Since seeing your report my wife has jumped on to couponing with both feet. While she hasn't yet bought $117.00 worth of groceries for $24 she has cut our grocery bill in half. I normally poo poo things like this, but thus far I'm impressed.

    Very interesting story! Makes me want to at try to take advantage of some of the coupons, rather than just tearing them out and then throwing them away 6 months later.

    Coupons are great, but I've learned that I have to be careful not to buy things just because they are on sale or just because I have a coupon. I clip coupons and shop sales for things I know I am going to buy anyway and try to ignore all the rest. Although it can be tempting, it's not smart to buy stuff you don't need or even really want - just because it's on sale!
