1. Get a store savings card (a must-have to get the sale prices!)
2. Check flyer for "bundle," WYB or "stock up" sales.
3. Check store flyer or booklets found in the store for store "sale" coupons.
4. Stock up on items when they are cheapest.
Here is an example of the savings you can get this week at Pick 'N Save/Copp's just by taking advantage of the sales, in-store flyer and store savings booklet coupons (no clipping or downloading required!) Here is a list showing how you can save 50% or more on many items!
Obviously, you wouldn't want or need all of the items listed below, but if you were to buy everything as listed, you would spend $93.37 instead of $210.89. That is an overall savings of 56% and not one coupon to clip! Of course, if you do have coupons for the items, you can increase your savings even more!
