Saving on Groceries and Saving your Money

first_imgBy Auyanna McBride, AFCPE-FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship InternWith the cost of groceries on the rise, many families are turning to couponing to save money on groceries.  There are several resources that offer great coupons.  Some of these include Sunday newspapers, www.coupons.com and the local store/commissary.  To save even more money, military families should try to shop at stores that double their coupons and only get items that the family uses.  A great way to start a savings program is to take the money saved on coupons and use it to open a savings account.  Most stores print the savings from coupons at the bottom of the receipt so their customers can see exactly how much they save using coupons and store specials.  This is a great incentive to use coupons even more because the more money people save, the bigger their savings account will grow.  For more information about savings strategies for military families, visit the Military Saves Web site at http://www.militarysaves.org/.This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network Blog on August 30, 2013.last_img
