Pinching Your Pennies-An Amazing Resource

Pinching Your Pennies is probably my favorite money saving website. At the click of the mouse, you can find deals-grocery and nongrocery- listed by state. Arizona has some amazing contributors who list the deals per grocery store and the cheap or free items available each week using coupons. This website saves me so much time and money!

I know there are other websites that charge for this FREE service that Pinching Your Pennies offers the general public.

Pinching Your Pennies lists which coupon insert- Smart Source, Red Plum, or Proctor and Gamble- and the date that the insert came in your Sunday papers. Pinching Your Pennies has a deal with the Arizona Republic where you can order multiple Sunday papers at a great discount. Visit PYP for more information!

So, when my coupons come, I place them in a folder with the date and the initials of the coupon inserts-RP, SS, or PG- that arrived that week. I copy and paste what deals I want to use from Pinching Your Pennies and paste the deals into my word processor on my computer. After I print my shopping plan, I find and cut the coupons finding them in the dated files I store them it. It makes couponing so easy!!! It saves us a lot of money.

I hope this can help you as well!

10 Ways to Save Money at the Grocery Store

Welcome, KOLD13 Viewers!

I hope this site becomes a valuable money saving resource for your family!

10 Ways to Save Money at the Grocery Store

  1. Have a weekly meal plan. Go through the store ads and plan your meals accordingly. If chicken is on sale, plan 2 meals that week that include chicken that week. Remember all store ads can be found online.
  2. Make a shopping list according to your weekly plan. Stick to the list. I allow myself 1 indulgence purchase per trip. If you stick to the list with 1 variation, you will save lots of money!
  3. Track prices of items that you buy regularly and stock up when they hit their lowest prices. For example, I stock up on my favorite name brand spaghetti sauces when their price hits $ .99. I know they only are sold at that price 3 or 4 times per year.
  4. Know the regular price on your favorite food items for the 3 stores you shop at most. You can find a printable tracking sheet at To the side note the lowest sales price that you generally see on the item.
  5. Try to limit your shopping to only one day a week. You would be amazed how much the little trips to the store add up!
  6. Avoid crisis shopping especially when hungry. It’s 5 p.m. and you are starving, you run into the store to just grab some things. Those are generally the most dangerous events on your pocketbook. Eat before you ever step into a grocery store.
  7. Coupons! Coupons! Coupons! Safeway, Bashas, and Frys double coupons taking up to $1 off. Pair coupons with sales items to get amazing deals. is a free site that lists the Arizona Free/Cheap weekly deals using coupons. Using this resource and my coupons, I get free or next to free food, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, etc…
  8. There are many ways to find coupons. The Arizona Daily Star offers their Saturday and Sunday with coupon papers delivered to your home for $5 per month or $60 per year. offers free printable coupons right from your own computer. You can print them directly from this website. You can print each coupon you like twice. Sign up for store mailings. I get coupons every couple months mailed to me from Frys. Most food companies have websites where you can print off coupons as well.
  9. When your coupons come, do not cut them until you are ready to go to the store. Place them in a file folder noting the date they arrived and the coupon insert initials. SS stands for Smart Source. RP stands for Red Plum. Pinching your pennies lists the deals telling you which insert and which Sunday it was delivered. I copy and paste what deals I want to take use into a document. Then, I cut the coupons and place them into an envelope labeled with the store where I plan to shop.
  10. Don’t forget about CVS and Walgreens freebies using coupons, Extra Care, Bucks, and Register Rewards. I list the coupon deals for each week on my Savvy Savings Tucson blog. Click here for information on how to get started saving at CVS.
