Now that you are actively filing your coupons, clearing out extra space for storage and getting more comfortable with the drugstore shopping it’s time to start preparing to REALLY STOCK-UP!
Stocking up is the best way to achieve your grocery savings. Chrissy has a wonderful example of how stocking up saved her family a ton! It’s a story we’ve told to MANY people, and it’s one of the first “validating” examples we had to share with our friends and family!
One of her family’s favorite meals is spinach lasagna. They have it every month and she doesn’t even have to think about how to make it–she’s on autopilot! It also happens to be an expensive meal!
If Chrissy made this meal for her family one time each month, without taking advantage of sales or coupons, the cost would be about $15. But, by buying all the ‘stockable’ ingredients when they are on sale and coupling that sale with a coupon, when possible, she can cut the cost down to about $4.50!
That’s savings of $10 a month, all year long, on ONE meal.
Now, can you imagine if you did that with every meal your family eats? That’s the plan!
