1. Always use the weekly sales circular and menu plan around it. 2. Combine sale items with coupons for further savings. 3. Shop somewhere that does double coupons (like Ralphs). 4. Always use a list and stick to it to avoid impulse purchases. 5. Never shop hungry. 6. Consider the 12-week sale cycle. Items typically go on sale at their all-time low every 12 weeks. Learn the prices of the things you buy and when they hit the low in the cycle, stock up (as long as the items won't perish before you get to them).
