Couponing 101 Part 2: Store Types
1. Wholesale Clubs – These types offer big quantities and discount prices. These are great places for getting deals on produce and meat. Most everything else will be cheaper elsewhere. Clubs DO NOT accept coupons. i.e. Sam’s Club, Costco, BJ’s, etc.
2. High-low Stores– These are your drugstores and high end grocers. They will generally be higher on most items but offer “sale items” at rock bottom prices hoping to get you in and spend more money. Coupons are accepted and most high-low stores offer a double or triple coupon program. i.e. Kroger, Harris Teeter, Lowes Food etc.
3. Always Low-Stores like this offer low prices to start with. This is where you would shop if an idea you needed was not on sale somewhere else. Coupons accepted for face value. i.e. Wal-Mart
About the Author
First and foremost I must give credit where it is due. I would not be able to do this with out God. He is my provision. I'm blessed to able to stay at home with my two little ones. He always meets our needs no matter how big or small. I have a 6yr old boy and a 2yr old girl who for the most part keep me running. I've been married to my best friend for 7yrs. I'm always looking for a deal, and now I'm helping bring them to you. The purpose of this blog is to share my every growing knowledge of couponing, shopping, & frugality. I will also post sites I think you might enjoy and insists on my faith. I know that part is not "politically correct" and may offend some people but I honestly do not care. The Word is not and never will be "politically correct" until politics get back to the principals that they were originally based upon. Having said that I will get off my soapbox and back to the couponing. I starting couponing when we were in the Marine Corp a few years back and now it's become a part of me. If I don't have to have it or don't have a coupon, I try not to buy it. I say try b/c I'm a former shopaholic. LOL! Now I'm one with coupons! So needless to say Black Friday is my FAVORITE shopping day of the year!
