Using Cents-Off Coupons to Get Free Groceries

With a little bit of know-how and a few regular cents-off coupons, you can get some of your groceries for free. I’ll tell you how.
Feeding your family is a top priority that can be made more difficult with rising grocery prices. Fortunately, there are a few strategies that you can use to get some of your groceries for free. Let’s take a look at how those ordinary cents off coupons can get you free groceries.
Using cents-off coupons can almost be as though you were playing poker or bridge. You want to use that coupon at the exact right time to make it work the hardest for you and your grocery budget
The most valuable grocery coupons in my book are those that are anywhere from 75 cents to 99 cents off. I’ll explain a little more about this in a future post. For now, just gather those coupons up and read the following.
For our example, let us say that you have a coupon for 75 cents off of any size toothpaste, and your store normally doubles coupons. If you want something for free, wait to use that cents-off coupon until one or both of the following scenarios occurs:
The couple can be tripled. While most stores do double coupons, some stores only triple on certain days, while others offer triple coupons (to clip and combine with your regular coupons) every so often. Triple is the goal.
In this case, your 75 cents-off coupon is now worth $2.25 or the cost of a medium tube of toothpaste. Free! Or, if you can only double that coupon to $1.50, go for the sample size tube of toothpaste and get that one for free.
The item on the coupon is also on sale at the store.
In this case you can still double your coupon to $1.50. When toothpaste is on sale at 2 for $3 ($1.50 each), you’ll get it for free.
