Now that you know some of our price points for stocking up on items and the sales cycles it’s time to start thinking about picking up more than one item at the store when you have additional coupons to use.
Here’s a few things you should know before you start:
1) A Store Sale + A Coupon = Rock Bottom Prices And BIG SAVINGS
The reason that we match up the weekly advertisements to coupons is because that is the time that you want to buy your item. It’s also important to know that the closer a coupon gets to it’s expiration date the more likely you are going to see a reduction in that items price.
2) Sales tend to come around every 3 months.
I don’t encourage anyone to clear a shelf at any store to start their stockpile but I do encourage you to buy the amount of a product that you will need to last you 3 months since sales and coupons re-appear every 3-4 months giving you savings throughout the entire year.
For example in 3 months I will go through approximately 2-3 jars of peanut butter and after that 3 months I will be able to find another great deal to last us an additional 3 months and I won’t find it necessary to make a purchase without a coupon or a sale on that item.
If you stock up when their are rock bottom then you have eliminated the NEED to make a purchase later.
3) Choose One Store to start your couponing and stockpiling in.
It’s important if you are just starting out to choose 1 store. Don’t compare yourselves to others and don’t fall into the temptation of trying everything at once. When you master your first store then move on to a second.
