I purchased the Woman's Day magazine savings issue (ithas a pizza on the front).
I didn't see much that I didn't already know. They talked about pairing coupons with sales. The problemihavewith that is my bare bones budget does not cover a lot of ready made things or non essentials.
The other thing that they covered was economical meals that do double duty. I call that stair stepping --making double of a meat or ingredient to get a head start on a meal later in the week. This too takes planning.
Half priced food does take some work. After you get set up it should take you about the same rime or less time than before. Basically, you trade a dozen trips to the grocery store or a marathon of time at Costco and the stress of what's for dinner every night for One trip to two stores and an organized meal plan for the week. An hour of prep when you find time shortly after you shop, saves about four hours of time during the week.
