Your local Albertsons grocery store sales are one of the ways that the store attempts to save you money on your weekly grocery bill. By researching these sales, either online or from the flyer that comes in a newspaper, you can learn to save quite a bit off your grocery budget.
If you wrote down what you typically purchase for a week’s worth of groceries, and then took the Albertson’s flyer to compare what is on sale, I am sure that you could find plenty of items to substitute that would save you a lot of money. For example, if you typically purchase a chuck roast regardless of price, but this week you went through the flyer and saw that beef round was on sale and would save you 40%, you could buy that instead and still make dishes that your family would recognize and eat.
Since today’s economy is unstable, saving money can be a priority and groceries are one place that we can save and not skimp. If you get serious about saving, you can add coupons to your sales items and save that much more than the average Albertsons store sales shopper. Imagine that Albertsons gives you a dollar off of a product and then the manufacturer gives you another dollar off. You just doubled you savings without much effort.
To illustrate what your savings could be, let’s take an average family of four. If your normal budget is around $200 a week without sales or coupons, cutting that down to size would be fairly easy. If you purchased only items on the Albertson’s sales flyer, and each item saved you a dollar, and there were 50 items on your list, you would save $50.00. This level of savings is rather unusual, but these numbers are being used for easy math. Even if you saved $0.50 an item, you would still save $25.00.
If you added coupons to that savings of $25.00, you could possibly double that to the $50.00 originally mentioned. That would make your grocery budget $150.00, all because you started being conscious of what is in the Albertson’s store sales ad. Imagine what you can do with $50 a week back in your pocket.
