Saving with Food Lion ~ The Coupon Hub


Special thanks to Food Lion engaging me to participate in this sponsored post campaign. All opinions are my own.

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, our grocery bill kills my budget. As the Mom of three competitive athletes spanning elementary to high school, two of which are teenaged boys, I can not feed them fast enough. From having enough to make it through the week without running back to the store for forgotten items to having food that I can make ahead of time or that is portable to eat field side, I’m always thinking about how I can make the entire grocery shopping experience both affordable and efficient. When it comes to affordable, I am a firm believing in using coupons.

When I’m asked why I answer “Why not?” We need every bit of help our budget can get and frankly coupons can really add up. Yes it takes time but if its my job to make sure we are doing our best to keep expenses down and food is such a challenge in the budget, then its my job to make sure we are saving whenever and wherever we can.

Enter Food Lion’s new Coupon Hub.

Saving Money with Food Lion ~ The Coupon Hub


What I love about being able to save coupons directly to my card is they live on my card until they expire so I can plan ahead for my shopping trips based on what is on sale in the store, what I have in my printed coupon supply, what I have in my coupon supplies from other sources and save as much as possible with each and every trip.  While I know this might seem like a lot of work, in my world, saving $30 is worth my time any way you slice it.

    I have to say that Food Lion is the best about accepting manufacturer coupons. I’ve gone to Walmart with manufacturer coupons and they give me a hard time. At Food Lion the cashiers are always friendly and never give me a problem about my coupons.

    My tips: 1. Buy in bulk to maximize savings 2. Keep your eyes open for close-out items which are heavily discounted. 3. Ask friends/relatives/neighbors for their old newspapers so you can collect the most coupons!

  2. Melissa02-27-14

    Dang that is cool! My biggest tip is to buy in bulk. It’s sometimes hard to swallow getting a giant pack of toilet paper, but you really do save per roll and don’t have to worry about running out a fast!

  3. Kelly D02-27-14

    My tip is to take advantage of double coupon offers and to match coupons with the store’s sales or clearance prices. Sometimes certain sale items aren’t even listed in the circular, so it’s best to bring your organized coupons with you to search for savings.

  4. wild orchid02-27-14

    My tip is combine coupons with sale prices. Watch for a great sale, pair with a coupon, and then stock up on multiples of the same item. This will ensure you buy things at rock bottom prices, and will stock you up for a while!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I really like to organize my coupons in a binder inside plastic divided sleeves, the trading card size. I try to use my coupons on sale items to maximize my savings. With baby #4 here, that is a pipe dream for me now! I start off with the best intentions by printing, cutting, getting them in order by aisles and stack them up on the kitchen counter. When it is time for my shopping trip, I just grab the ones I know I need. I am not saving as much as I could, but every little bit helps especially with the MVP card!

    Thank you :)

    Combine store sales with coupons, use loyalty cards to get extra savings. Always carry your coupons with you just in case you find unadvertised deals and never leave the store without checking out the clearance stuff

  10. Amanda Sakovitz03-03-14

    I try to take advantage of double coupons to save

  11. Lauren E.03-04-14

    Im still new to coupining. I watch all the coupon sites where I can print, and then use multiple devices for a great coupon. I also follow blogs local to my area, whom show the best match ups. I especially love couponing for pet items as that can get expensive fast… I scour the isles for peelies, and save the ones for free cans under $1 to use at a specific store that doubles them.

  12. Kelby Carr03-04-14

    I definitely recommend online coupons you print. I have no patience for clipping newspaper coupons.

  13. Kelly {the Centsible Life}03-04-14

    I always look to combine store and manufacturer coupons or sales and coupons for the trifecta of couponing!

  14. Shannan P03-04-14

    My favorite couponing tip is to keep the coupon file in the car! That way it’s ready to go even for an impromptu grocery stop!

  15. Carmen Grant03-04-14

    My favorite couponing tip – don’t leave the coupons at home :)

  16. Erica Chao03-04-14

    I like to combine b1g1 free coupons with b1g1 free store sales to maximize my savings!

  17. Thomas Murphy03-04-14

    I just find as many coupons as I can online.

  18. Dana Adams03-04-14

    My favorite way to use coupons- digital! It’s much easier to organize, and I don’t forget them at home.

  19. Brandice Howard03-04-14

    only clip coupons for items I would ordinarily buy, plan meals around sales and coupons, buy bulk when I can, stock up on buy one get ones

  20. Allison03-05-14

    My best tip is find a store that price matches. That way, you don’t have to go to ten different stores every week to get the best bargains – you just take in your stack of fliers. Some stores won’t accept a coupon on top of price matching, and some will. I print out the store policy and take it with me so I can show any cashier or manager who might not know the corporate policy.

    I like to arrange coupons in my coupon purse by food type…frozen, dairy, canned.
