I was just checking out the grocery store ads this morning. We get ads for Publix, Albertson's and Winn Dixie. Albertson's has a great coupon for you to use. Remember, Publix will take competitor coupons which is great because Albertson's has a 5.00 dollar off coupon when you purchase any frozen turkey 12 lbs and up.

Sure.. you could use the coupon at Albertsons too, but I really like Publix and I also have other store coupons that I like to use. For instance, CVS 4/20 (or what ever is current...) Target has sent me 5.00 coupons in the mail. I love to hand over everyone's coupons to the cashier and watch my total decrease!!

Hi, Lisa,

I noticed your posts about coupons and saving money and wanted to send this along for possible story consideration on Holiday strategic shopping that conquers budgets with bulk shopping and "buddy bonding"…

There will be a great deal of "making a list and checking it twice" to maximize budgets this Holiday season, and one strategy is in "buddy shopping" – it's all about the "power of two" for cost-effective and strategic warehouse club shopping for the Holidays. We work with BJ's Wholesale Club and shoppers can save while taking advantage of the benefits of bulk and multi-pack savings. In addition to their own coupons, BJ's accepts manufacturer's coupons – the only warehouse club that does – that allows for multiple coupons to be redeemed on multi-packs of "individual for sale" packaged items. An example would be: BJ's sells a 2 pack of mouth wash that is normally sold and packaged as individual items in other major retail stores; you could use up to two coupons on this type of packaging in addition to many other items – and then split the cost and items in half between shopping partners – for even more savings.

Items great for divvying up include paper goods, toiletries, produce, meats, candy, cookie and muffin variety packs, juices, soda, bottled water, soap and cleaners…just to name a few. By splitting big packages, Holiday shoppers are also spending less per item than if purchased at a local grocery store (more than 30 percent over supermarket prices).

Besides savings on money, time and gas, shopping partners can finish off the "savings experience" with their own kitchen-side "packaging party," to divy up the purchases and then settle back knowing they've checked off their lists with the best savings possible.

Thanks for your consideration,

Tracy Tilson
