Coupon Clipping


This is nowhere near that extreme couponing, but whatever I can do to help trim that grocery bill. M has pointed out that none of the supermarkets in the Capital Region do double coupons [Edit: Price Chopper has since started to double coupons up to $.99 due, apparently, to the news that ShopRite that will be coming our way.]. The nearest Price Chopper that does is in Bennington. Hannaford from what I can tell doesn’t double, but will take competitors coupons and internet coupons, with certain restrictions.  No clue about Walmart, but I really try not to get groceries from there. Shoprite (which will soon be in Niskayuna!!) will double coupons, but I don’t know if they’ll keep it once they’re here.
I don’t know if coupons are really worth it – a majority of the coupons were for items I don’t even want. And the way it looks, you have to buy a lot to make it worthwhile (I could be wrong with that, but that’s what it looks like).
Meh… I’ll still give it a go and see how it pans out. Perhaps the biggest challenge will be to remember to bring my coupons when I go to the store.
