Original Message As you can tell, grocery prices and starting to go through

the roof! A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine introduced

me to using coupons while items are on sale.

I have never used coupons because I always thought that if

you bought more than one item, let say a box of cereal, I

thought that you could only use one coupon. The truth is that

you can use a coupon for EVERY item you purchase!

She gave me a list of websites to visit that matched coupons

to current sales. Come to find out when you do this, you can

get A LOT of items for FREE! I cannot tell you how amazed I

was after learning this! For instance, yesterday I made a trip

to my local Harris Teeter which is having a super doubles

coupon sale. This means they will double coupons up to $1.98

in value. This means if you have a coupon for $1.00 off, it

doubles to $2.00 off. If you have a coupon that is $1.50

off, well then it is $3.00 off! I purchased about $220.00

worth of groceries for $42.00 with most of that being tax.

Fruits & Vegetables

Commercially frozen fruits will last up to a year in your freezer. Commercially frozen vegetables have a life-span of only eight months. Another option for storing these items for long periods is canning them. If you plan to buy these items in bulk, on a regular basis, it would be a good investment to consider purchasing a canning machine to insure the food is kept air-tight.

Dried beans kept free from moisture can last for several years. This is an excellent way to stretch your money, plus beans are full of protein for healthy eating.


Most juices that you buy, such as apple juice, can last 3-5 years un-opened. If you are unsure of how long your juice will last, contact the manufacturer consumer phone number.

Optional Items

* Chocolate - unsweetened 18 months
* Coffee, vacuum pack - One year
* Milk, canned - One year
* Molasses - Two years
* Nuts - Eight months
* Oils/salad dressings - Three months
* Peanut butter (unopened) - Six months
* Sauces, condiments, relishes (unopened) - One year
* Shortening - Eight months
* Syrups - One year
* Tea - 18 months

The important thing to remember when buying in bulk, is that a deal is only a good deal if you actually use the products that you purchase.
