I would like some ideas on how to save on my groceries at the store. The way prices are going up and up, I need to save all I can. Thanks ahead for the tips.

All of the previous ideas are great! One of the things I do is shop at a "bulk food store". These stores are usually small and independently owned. They buy food in bulk (flour, sugar, cereal, spices, peanut butter, rice, pasta, etc.) and then repackage it in smaller sizes, and sell it really cheap. The variety of goods they sell is amazing!
Another idea is to only buy things like dish detergent, shampoo, deodorant, body soap, and paper goods such as toilet paper tissue, etc. at the Dollar store. I would strongly suggest buying a copy of the book "The Tightwad Gazette" and reading it from cover to cover. (08/16/2008)

I go on the supermarkets internet site for specials and coupons. Some major drugstores have great prices sometimes
on coffee, paper goods, dry cereal. Check their websites, too. (08/19/2008)
Shop the market in the opposite direction. Usually they have you start in produce and end in dairy. The store is laid out to coax you into spending as much as possible. By doing it in the opposite direction you have more control. (08/20/2008)
I found a great source to help, Angel Ministries on the internet. You find a list of churches in your area that offer the food. Each month's menu is posted online and they have great packages at low prices. They have new senior meals where you get 10 balanced meals for 25 dollars, and their regular monthly packages are only 30 dollars. (08/20/2008)
I found that one of the best ways to save money is to use google for printable coupons, and to join a free coupon forum so I can talk to others about what is on sale each week.
My favorite coupon forum is: http://thecouponcupboard.com/ (08/22/2008)
Eat before you go. Make a list and take it with you and stick to it. Don't look at the racks next to the cash registers because those are there to get you to be impulsive. God Luck! (08/25/2008)
I've found the best way to save on juice is to buy the frozen concentrates. I've found nice berry blends for $1.29 per can which makes a nice size pitcher of juice. You would pay over $3 for the juice already blended. It really takes no time to do this. (10/25/2008)
