Hey Erin,
Great advice. I’ve already been using your tips for watching for when meat goes on sale in the flyers and coupons. It totally changes how you meal plan when you sit down with the weekly flyers. It’s amazing how much you can save!

Thanks again!!

I just checked out and unfortunately it doesn’t apply to me in Canada since we don’t have any of those grocery stores. Do you read any frugal blogs that are Canadian so I can see if they have any coupon website suggestions?

Great tips about protein shopping! Do you find the manager’s special meats in a particular section, or are they mixed in with everything else?
