    I love finding someone who loves great deals just like me. This is a great website and I’ve already started spreading the word with my friends. I’ve been an avid couponer for over 30 years and I still love it. Keep the great ideas coming! By the way, love the website design. ;)

  2. Marianna says:

    Follow great blogs (like yours) to keep up with the best deals, sales and coupons!

  3. Happi Shopr says:

    We comparrision shop, use coupons (though I’m still learning) and the like. Also, never, NEVER grocery shop hungry and stick to the outside walls of the stores – all the fresh stuff is there so no preservatives and the like.

    • The Discount Dame says:

      Never shopping hungry is a good tip! I try to keep to the outside edges of the store as well…but our frozen whole grain waffles are right across the aisle from the chip section…I think Safeway is trying to sabotage my diet! Hehehe

  4. Elizabeth Johnson says:

    When grocery shopping I love to use coupons on sale items

  5. Tl Moyer says:

    I use coupons and watch for sale items.

  6. brandy says:

    I use coupons on items at my favorite grocery stores when they are on sale and I use my customer card which usually gets me the item for free.

  7. Nancy says:

    My favorite money saving tip is to shop farmer’s markets for produce. Prices are usually cheaper than any grocery store with perhaps the exception of Aldi’s!

    • The Discount Dame says:

      I used to shop farmers markets as well because of the low prices, but now that I use the Safeway J4U program I get my produce MUCH cheaper there…and it seems to last longer.

  8. Jennifer Winchester says:

    shop sales and use coupons

  9. Sarah Zaengle says:

    I make a list of the best sales each week from local ads. Then, when I am out and about, I stop at specific stores for specific items, then stock up!

    • The Discount Dame says:

      Great advice Sarah! Stocking up when prices are low will save you so much money…nothing is more expensive than that last minute run to the drug store because your out of something.

  10. Helen says:

    always do your reearch before you go be prepared and keep organized

    • The Discount Dame says:

      Helen you are a gal after my own heart. Organization is key! Be sure you click on over to my beginner’s guide section and check out my articles and videos on coupon organization.

  11. Sunnie says:

    Id say make a menu plan, I like to do an inventory of all my meats and make a plan from there/.

    • The Discount Dame says:

      Planning out your menu for the week is a GREAT way to save, people don’t realize how much food gets thrown away each week! That’s just money in the can! I try to plan my menu so that each day’s meals piggy-back off the last. We BBQ’d night before last so last night the left over steak morphed into steak burritos. Left over scrambled eggs work great in fried rice…the possibilities are endless!

  12. Mandy Kauffman says:

    I always pair coupons with sales!

  13. Danielle Priser says:

    I’m all about the coupons and sale matchups!

  14. amy says:

    may not seem like a lot, but line drying, and using wool dryer balls. saves electricity, the sun is FREE!

  15. hannah says:

    Be flexible with your budget so that you can stock up on items when they are on sale. For example, i went over budget this month to stock up on butter – going in the freezer – , since it was on sale for $2/lb; and stocked up on olive oil since with sale and coupon it was 50% off – and I bought enough to last for quite a while.
    This way your dollars can buy more!

  16. Tim says:

    The one money saving tip I always tell my wife to use is to always eat BEFORE she goes grocery shopping. If you aren’t hungry you will not be tempted by all of the overpriced snacks.

    • The Discount Dame says:

      I make sure my hubby and son are fed if they decide to tag along, otherwise…they are budget blowers!

  17. Ed Nemmers says:
