Savings!

Savings!

Woohoo! I found a new place to save, which is always cause for celebration around here.  Not only did I find a way to save money but it’s something that we spend money on every month anyway.  Did you know that the first Saturday of the month our local Albertson’s gives a 10% discount to military?

  Ok, ok…so I know that we have the commissary to use. It’s cool and the whole “not paying tax” thing but the 6% surcharge they tack on the end isn’t exactly wonderful. Since we don’t live on base and going to the local stores are a bit more convenient then I tend to look for sales and deals wherever I can. I don’t typically shop Albertson’s but just happened to glance at their flyer and saw the discount. Super cool!

  They often have some great deals going on at the same time. If you take advantage of the sales that are going on and combine them with the 10% discount you can save a ton of money. The first time I took advantage of this combined savings my total savings came close to $50.00. I’ll take that all day long! I’m a huge fan of saving money. The money saved on groceries can be used to go to other things: lessons for the kids, something fun for the husband and I, any number of things would greatly benefit from a few extra dollars in the envelope.

  Go ahead and check your local grocery stores and see if they offer a discount; they may do it every day, weekly, monthly, or possibly just yearly. It never hurts to ask and it could always help!
