How to Start Saving on Groceries

Savings habits are hard to establish. Hard like when you first decide to not order soft drinks in restaurants and order water to save a few dollars, or deciding to only fill your gas tank according to the gas app on your phone.  You will forget!  You'll be half way to filling your tank before you pull your phone out. Or your waitress will walk away to get your $2.56 drink before you can realize that for your family of 5, you just blew $13 on 60 ounces of "who cares".  


It will take about 90 days to get to a point where you always remember to check your phone app before going to the grocery store.  We have spending habits that work the same as our savings habits.  Yet, this is the future of coupon clipping.  It's time to  serious about saving money with your phone and computer.  You will need to have your apps loaded and clipped so you can redeem all your digital dollars.

Yo may be wondering if it's worth it.  It is worth it!  There are hundreds of offers on apps like Ibotta for products you purchase each week.  HUNDREDS.  Your My County Market App has items that are not commonly found on traditional coupon sites.  Look for produce coupons on both apps. I've saved on tomatoes, bananas, even garlic.  I have been buying salad kits for the family weekly off the County Market app. You definitely can save extra money with the apps, no doubt about it.

You'll need to establish this habit so that it becomes part of your routine.  To do this, you need to connect it with another habit you already have established.  For example, is there a habit you have on Wednesday that allows you a few minutes to prep your phone?  For me, it's Wednesday morning after the kids are set to school.  I have a window of about 20 minutes before my day begins.  This is when I make a cup of coffee and check my daily to do list.  This is already my routine, so I'm going to tie this new behavior to an old one.

After coffee, and with my to do list review, I will click on the apps and put digital coupons in my wallet.  It will only take a couple minutes, but it will be set before I reach the store.  That's it!  It's on Wednesday, the first day of shopping week, and when offers are renewed.  It fits with my already scheduled routine.  And, it will save me money and become a new habit.   

Wednesday is your best bet for establishing a new savings habit.  Try to find an already existing habit on this day you do every week.  Look for habits like picking up  kids from soccer practice, lunch plans, favorite TV show schedule.  Before you know it, your app shopping will be second nature.

The New Pennies

The new penny pincher book has a lot of people relooking at pennies.  So many people that were not clipping the coupons have started with the new offers.  Many of our loyal penny shoppers have stepped up their savings game.  Personally, I love having the new options.

One of the questions I am getting is in regards to using multiple coupons.  This disclaimer is always on any store coupon, so that you can not combine another store coupon to the offer.  You can however add a manufacturer's coupon to your store penny pincher coupon.  County Market encourages you to make a coupon match!

There are several ways to make that coupon match. You can match a standard printable or newspaper manufacturer's coupon.  In each coupon book, there are easy matches to these standard coupons.  You can also match to phone app rebates, and mail in rebates.  Some of the best phone apps are found on MyCountyMarket.  You can usually pick up one or two off of Ibotta or  Checkout 51.

We're getting a lot of feedback about how easy it is to pick up penny pincher books at the stores.  Couponers are loving the fact that you can pick up an extra book at customer service.  You no longer have to worry if your booklet does not arrive in the mail.

Another big feature is that there are two sets of coupons in one book.  That is double the previous book count.  So with double the coupons available there are more choices for users.  Personally, I love the fact that we have two time periods to buy.  You no longer have to pick up all your offers in one weeek while you are shopping.  This allows you to plan out and space out your buys through the month.  I love the freedom of the new book!

Join our conversation about the new penny pincher book on facebook.  We have lots of coupon shoppers sharing match ups, and deals on our facebook page.

2nd Half of Penny Pinchers

Are you ready to use the second half of your April Penny Pincher book?  It is truly an amazing upgrade with many new features.  We are into the second half of the redemption period.   Here are the top reasons why you should pick up a penny pincher book and get shopping!



1.  It's Double!  There are now two times as many coupons in the penny pincher booklet per month.  You have 48 coupons to use throughout the store.  We're in the second half of the book right now, and you have 24 coupons to pick.

2.  There are coupons valid each week of the month.  Half the booklet is good for the first two weeks of the month, half for the last half of the month.  This gives everyone a chance to hit the store and rack up some savings.  Even those folks with monthly pay periods.

3.  It is availabe at the store.  The mail service is not the best in rural areas for delivering the booklets, so now they are providing 1000's of them at customer service.  No more worrying if you forgot a coupon at home, or if it did not come in the mail.

4.  There is a preview online.  You can look up the current month's penny pincher book anytime at mycountymarket.com  

5.  There are coupons on fresh foods included in the booklet.  You will find fresh foods from dairy, meat, and produce in the booklet in both sections.

6.  All these coupons are "Store" issued coupons and can be matched with a Manufacturer's coupon. you can match them with printable, app rebates, newspaper coupons, hang tags and tearpad coupnos, and you can match to the my county market app.

7.  These are much easier to cut and carry.  The smaller size fits in your hand, and in your coupon wallet easy.  These even fit in coupon binder sleeves.

We're pretty excited for the new coupons, and we think you will be too.  Drop by our facebook page and let us know what you think!

Top 5 Grocery Apps

When it comes to saving money on your groceries, there's an app for that!  Most stores these days have apps that give you directions to local stores, or hours of operation.  But to actually save money with an app, you'll need the good ones.  Your phone can be full of apps that save you money.  Yet most people do not have the 5 best apps loaded and ready to go at any time.  These 5 will save you money and are easy to use. 



1.   My County Market App It just makes sense right?  You shop at the store, why no use their app?  It has County Market's store brand coupons you can use each week, and coupons for brands not found on other apps like Pepsi, Frito and Produce.  As you select the offers you want, the savings are accumulated in the app when you scan your Max Card at the checkout lane.  Simple and it saves you real money. 
 

2.  Ibotta app for rebates The rebate app and the coupon app work together.  You can use both (should they match up) on the purchase of one item.  Rebates are credited direct to the consumer's paypal account after you claim $20 in savings. Once you download this app, it will ask which store you wish to shop, click on County Market, and start gathering up the items you want to save money with.  That's it. Just select them.  Once you check out, it will auto read your Max Card and your money is added to your account. Simple. 

3.  Retale App.   Start by using an app that gives you all the sales circulars weekly.   Retale includes all the local circulars, including County Market.  Never miss a deal by not having a newspaper in hand!


4.  Gas Buddy.     Don't overlook something simple as Gas Buddy.  It will let you know if its worth an extra mile to save $6 on a fill up.  Updated by consumers, and confirmed by consumers it often will save you $.20 to $.35 per gallon on gas.  Here's the kicker-you already have $.25 off gas coupon from County Market right?  Now use it at the best possible time. 


5.  Checkout 51. It's very similar to Ibotta, but has slightly different offers.  It works the same way, but you take a photo of your receipt upon checkout.  

These money savers can add some serious bucks to your year end savings.  Why wait?  Load them onto your phone now.  They are FREE! Visit County Market Coupon News Cookin w Coupons's profile on Pinterest.

2X Penny Pinchers Start This Week

This week is buzzing with news of our new Penny Pincher booklet.  It's twice as big, not 24 offers, but 48.  There are new features, like having a Penny Pincher available every week.  The booklet will be featured online so you can see all the offers at any time.  You will still get them in the mail, and in addition you can pick up extra copies at customer service.  As always, you can match a Penny Pincher to a manufacturer's coupon, a phone app rebate, or My County Market app rebate.



When I looked at my first offers, three stood out to me a great buy for anyone.

1.  Kraft Shredded Cheese, Kraft posts printables sporadically on Coupons.com, and you can always freeze shredded cheese.

2.  Onions! Anytime we have a produce offer, I snatch it up.

3.  Old Orchard Juice, Match to online printable (scroll down page)  $.50 on 1

There are 21 other great offers in the book, but these are the 3 I think most all customers can pick up.  With a LONG redemption time period printables will pop up and max out along the way.

3 Simple Steps to Save on Groceries


Strategy #1   Never shop without a plan. Impulse buying can wreck your grocery budget.  And never shop hungry!   It seems like a simple strategy and it works.  The plan starts with having a good idea of what your family needs to buy this week.  There are hundreds of phone apps for you to jot down notes. You may want to break down your plan into sections.  Buy this week, buy sometimes in the next few weeks, or buy sometime next month allows you to prioritize your purchases.  Then your plan should be matched up with the weekly sale ad.  If it's on sale and matches with any item on  your needs list then it becomes part of the buy plan.  If you are in doubt of what items should be on those lists, you should look at your past purchase history. This is simple, just pull your past few receipts and take a look at the things you have been buying.  Which would you purchase again? 

Strategy #2  Only buy when stacking 2 or more deals.  Many extreme coupon shoppers only buy items when they know they are getting the absolute best deals.  Having an item on sale usually means that the item is discounted between 25-40% off regular retail.  If you stack another form of savings you can get into the 40-65% savings range.  That is where most coupon shoppers try to find their deals.  You can stack a sale item, with a coupon (store or manufacturer), with an app rebate, or with a by mail rebate.  If you use this strategy, you will need to keep a close eye on all types of stacking options. 

Strategy #3  Shop during low peak hours and take your time.  This strategy keeps your impulses under control.  If you shop when there are is not a rush in the store you'll have more time to review your buying options.  Should you buy this item now, or wait for a potential sale next week?  If you are not rushed you can also think more clearly and do some meal planning as you shop.  A rushed shopper grabs more prepared meals, more convenience foods and more overall items.  A bag of 15 apples becomes easier to grab than picking your own 8 apples for the week.  Less waste, is money saved.

Ibotta Ibotta Ibotta

One of the easiest phone apps you can use in 2017 is Ibotta.  It's a rebate app that allows you to save money on groceries.  It is a rebate, because you get the money direct to consumer.  The store does not accumulate the savings like with coupons.  The money is paid out to the consumer direct, it is paid each time you reach a $20 threshold.  You can take your money in the form of a paypal deposit, or an Amazon gift card, or many other gift card options. 

One of the appeals to Ibotta is the way they offer brands and non brands at the same time.  You can get dollars on all kinds of brands, and often you can get any brand rebates in the dairy department and in fresh produce.  These work together to allow you to redeem many rebates during a month.  There are generic offers each week and these change frequently.

Ibotta offers other ways to save money too.  One of the best ways, is to offer you a bonus system when you consistently use Ibotta, and redeem rebates.  This is the best way to increase your savings on items.  The bonuses can add up to a lot of money.  Usually you will get $2 bonus offers when you redeem 3 rebates.  When you apply that amount to each item, you are adding $.67 per item, which is a good product value.   As you redeem one bonus, others will be offered.  These bonuses can be awarded on your choice of purchases.  Some who use Ibotta regularly insist these are worth more than the basic offers. 

Finally, you can get $10 when you sign with a referral.  Always use a referral code to get started, it's free money! (Here is a general code if you need one  wnmjkey)  Then after your first redemption, you will be allowed to share your own referral code for $5 per person who signs up and redeems an offer.  It's a great way to put you over the top of any redemption.   There is not a limit on these bonuses.

The best part about using Ibotta at County Market is that you don't have to scan in your receipt and wait for approval.  All purchases with your max card are automatically calculated.  You pick your offers before you shop.  You shop and scan your max card.  That is it!  It will post to your account, and when you hit $20 you redeem your savings. 

Use all the bonuses, sign up money, name brand, and store brand offers to add that extra savings to your annual goals.

Start Getting Rebates

Rebates are the icing on the cake.  We watch the sales, we clip the coupons, and we stockpiled the goods.  The very last step is to file a Rebate.  These can add another layer of savings to users.  As I mentioned last week, we recently moved.  I’m thinking that an extra $100 each month would come in handy. So step number 1, is to look for some rebates to use over the next 90 days.

Some rebates are for goods only.  The Kimberly Clark rebates, the PG rebates are good examples.  These dictate which brands qualify for money back by mail.  These are usually good for $15-$20 on a purchase of $50 or more.  Not bad if you can stockpile, use coupons and hit a sale.  By the time you add these discounts up it’s often over 75% savings.
Then there are the alcohol rebates.  These still confuse people.  How do I know?  My sister called.  She has been listening to me tell her about rebates for 3 years, and she just got it last week.  
1. Alcohol rebates are for FOOD not liquor.  They offer you a rebates on purchases of meat, produce, cheese, salty snacks etc.  
2. When you file the rebate, it matters where you live (address requesting the rebate)  not where you purchase your groceries.  
3. Some rebates are High dollar rebates.  This means that they offer a high value to the amount you need to purchase.  For example, one out now says Get $20 on any $50 grocery purchase.  That is high dollar, because it’s 40% on the purchase of any groceries.
4. You need a qualified receipt.  That means from a well known grocery store, like County Market.  Bob’s corner market isn’t a good idea.  The store logo must be on the receipt, The store address, date and time of purchase must be on the receipt.  
5. You will be asked to circle the Regular price of the items.  Here is why CM receipts are best.  If we are running a sale on ground beef, and it’s regularly $6.50, and you paid $3.50 you will get credit for the full $6.50.  So let’s say you buy $50 in ground beef, yet pay $30 out of pocket, you’ll get $20 from the rebate, you just saved 80%.  That’s fantastic savings.
6. Some offers are NO alcohol required.  Missouri customers. Please get your rebate forms and start getting money back.  If there is no alcohol portion, it’s all refunded.  Missouri shoppers should be getting 75% of their groceries free all the time. 

Here are some places to look online for more rebate forms:

Hot Coupon World  You have to set up an account to converse with those who have forms to trade.  Once you have an account, just follow this rebates only board until you see something you can use.  I find that North Carolina traders are great for Missouri buyers.  I live in MO, and NC has the same offers.  If you are in IL there are 28 states that will have the same offers you have. 

Ebay  Here is a search link I set up so you can see how I do it.  I search "Beer rebates" and this is what pops up.  If you want to narrow it down add "IL" Or "MO"  or "IN" to your search.  

Lynns Coupons and Rebates  She has everything.  PG by mail forms, liquor forms, nbpr forms and general items.  She runs this small business form her home in FL and does a great job of trading as well.  So if you decide you want forms for free, pick up extras to trade for credit on account.  You can follow her fb page too.

Where to find the BEST coupons

This week we're going to open up and talk about finding the Best coupons.  The best coupons are high dollar, BOGO coupons and rebate forms.  They offer you a pretty good return for your time picking them up.  Here are some of my top secret tactics to keeping my coupon stash full of the Best coupons.


1.  Know what's out there.  It helps if you know what you're looking to find.  I use coupon databases and trade boards to let me know what's available.  For example, I purchased a turkey for Thanksgiving and although I picked it up at a good price, I want more!  So I went to Hot Coupon World and searched the word turkey.  Turns out I'm looking for a Heineken Turkey offer for $10 valid in Missouri (where I live).  So Next time I'm in Hannibal's County Market I'll be looking for  that form.

2.  Pick up coupons in the store!  Yes, you can pick them up to use at the time or a later date.  We ask that you do not take them all.  Some of the very best offers are Tearpad coupon offers you find in the grocery store.  Sometimes you'll find them hanging on displays mid aisle.  Other times you will find them at the customer service desk.  Our team knows I'm looking for coupons so they sometimes tell me they have new ones a the desk. Gather peelies, hangtags, tearpad and blinkie coupons every time you shop.

3.  Use online services for high dollar coupons you can not find in our area.  I admit, Florida and California get some pretty great coupons that never see the Midwest!  I use a service for inserts out of CA, and a clipping service in FL that offers high dollar rebates and tearpad coupons.  In the past I've signed up for mixed envelopes of coupons for a small price.  It's worth it!

4.  Look in the trash.  Yep. I ask for all the Catalinas at the registers when I shop.  "Hey do you have any Catalina's in the trash that other customers didn't want?"  There are always a few.  The best one on record was a Catalina reward for $10 on my next purchase, that the customer didn't want, and the cashier didn't know what it was.  Score!  I always look for those blue faced catalina coupons.  People just don't know what they are and end up tossing them.  They are dollars redeemable by anyone.

5.  Visit the liquor department.  Even if you do not buy liquor!  Some of my best coupon scores have been $2 on meat hangtags-NO alcohol purchase required!  Or picking up FREE 2 liter of soda purchase, limit one per transaction (I shopped a lot that month).  There are great food offers hanging around in the liquor department.

6.  Get on coupon trains. These are listed on sites like HCW,  A Full Cup, and other coupon sites.  They have members who will send you a trade envelope of mixed coupons they do not want, you then send one to them.  It works and costs you the price of a stamp.

3 Strategies for Coupon Success


Strategy #1   Never shop without a plan. Impulse buying can wreck your grocery budget.  And never shop hungry!   It seems like a simple strategy and it works.  The plan starts with having a good idea of what your family needs to buy this week.  There are hundreds of phone apps for you to jot down notes. You may want to break down your plan into sections.  Buy this week, buy sometimes in the next few weeks, or buy sometime next month allows you to prioritize your purchases.  Then your plan should be matched up with the weekly sale ad.  If it's on sale and matches with any item on  your needs list then it becomes part of the buy plan.  If you are in doubt of what items should be on those lists, you should look at your past purchase history. This is simple, just pull your past few receipts and take a look at the things you have been buying.  Which would you purchase again? 

Strategy #2  Only buy when stacking 2 or more deals.  Many extreme coupon shoppers only buy items when they know they are getting the absolute best deals.  Having an item on sale usually means that the item is discounted between 25-40% off regular retail.  If you stack another form of savings you can get into the 40-65% savings range.  That is where most coupon shoppers try to find their deals.  You can stack a sale item, with a coupon (store or manufacturer), with an app rebate, or with a by mail rebate.  If you use this strategy, you will need to keep a close eye on all types of stacking options. 

Strategy #3  Shop during low peak hours and take your time.  This strategy keeps your impulses under control.  If you shop when there are is not a rush in the store you'll have more time to review your buying options.  Should you buy this item now, or wait for a potential sale next week?  If you are not rushed you can also think more clearly and do some meal planning as you shop.  A rushed shopper grabs more prepared meals, more convenience foods and more overall items.  A bag of 15 apples becomes easier to grab than picking your own 8 apples for the week.  Less waste, is money saved.
