6 Simple Steps To Saving More This Year!

6 Simple Steps To Saving More This Year!

The passing of December 31st each year means many, many coupons expiring. Now with a new year comes new deals, new coupons and new saving strategies.

Here are a few reminders to help you save more this year!

  1. Set a goal for your savings:
    This may be as simple as trying to stick to a fixed budget...or more detailed.  Try to save a little more each time you shop.

  2. Do Not compare yourself to others: 
    One of the most common reasons I hear that people give up on coupons is: they can't get all the deals they read about. Remember,  start small. We all know what we are willing to pay for something. Next time you buy deodorant or bathroom tissue,  try to get it cheaper than you usually do. Try to beat your own prices each time you shop. Do Not compare yourself to others,be inspired by others, but be proud of what you are accomplishing too!

  3. Start tracking NOW:
    Get a journal, or spread sheet to help with this. Each time you shop write down how much you saved with coupons.

  4. Watch for coupons everywhere:
    Coupons really are everywhere.  In Magazines, newspapers, in product packages/ on boxes, by email newsletter,  manufacturer's websites, Facebook,Twitter, in store displays/booklets, websites (both printable and mail to you) and here for resources to help you collect coupons

  5. Start/continue to stock items you use regularly:
    I hate the term Stockpile, simply because everyone assumes it means hoarding.  A stockpile will help with your overall savings if done properly.  You need to be reasonable and learn the rock bottom prices of items you use everyday. You can save a large amount of money by picking up items when they are free or almost free. BUT always remember, there is a 4 to 6 week sales cycle for everything.  It will be on sale again!

  6. Use Cash Back Apps:
    Check the cash back apps every week for new offers and items to save on. Cash back apps allow you to purchase items in stores, then take a pic of your receipt to upload to the app. You can claim cash back on various items each week, and the amount is kept in your app account. Once you reach the cash out threshold ($20 for most), you can request your cash by cheque.
These are just a few things you can do to help you be focused and save more this year.
Happy Savings,
Ruth Ann

Shopping With the MCL Team: Ashley’s Haul

Unlike our lovely admin, Natalie, I don’t tend to do big shopping trips each weekend as I am only shopping for 2 (with a little one on the way). I usually shop once every two weeks, buying things to stock up on and the usual fruit, veggies and meats. I love Walmart and their new Canada-wide price match policy, so I am definitely excited for when the Supercenter in Moncton officially opens its doors! I set high standards for myself when it comes to savings percentage, and if I cannot get an item for at least 50% off retail, I don’t usually buy it. I consider myself the queen of organization, and if you ask, I probably have an excel spreadsheet for just about everything (yes, including my shopping list). So, here’s a tidbit from my “stock up” trip this weekend:
Superstore: Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a sucker for Starbucks coupons, and will give just about anything to get them. I wanted to use up the last stack of coupons I had from trades and people just giving them to me, so the $2.00 each sale at Superstore on Trinity was great.
Each drink was $2.00 - $1.00 coupon = $1.00 each + $0.10 deposit.
I bought 29 of them (since that’s how many coupons I had), with loads left on the shelf. My receipt says 47% savings taking into account the deposit and tax I had to pay.
Total price before coupons: $68.44
Tax Paid: $7.54
Total coupons used: $29.00
Price After Coupons: $39.44
Percentage Saved (Not Including Tax and Deposit): 50%
Walmart: As previously mentioned, I love shopping at Walmart and I love price matching to save even more money! Here are the things I purchased using both coupons and Canada-wide price matching:
5 x Similac Mom (pm’d Lawtons) $8.99 - $10.00 Similac Mom Cheque = ($1.01 x 5) = $5.05 in overage J
5 x Mott’s Garden Cocktail (pm’d Metro QC) $1.66 - $0.50 tearpad = 1.16 each x 5 = $6.30*
*There was also a $0.10 deposit per item = $0.50
2 x Eggo Waffles (pm’d Longo’s ON) $2.49- $1.00 = $1.49 x 2 = $2.98
**None of these items are taxed
Total price before coupons: $58.73
Total coupons used: 54.50
Total OOP: 4.23
Percentage Saved: 93%
