Find ways to save before your big grocery weekend

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - It's the time of the year when many dig deep into often at times shallow pockets -- and with a big weekend of grocery shopping before Thanksgiving, finding ways to save is key.

Coupon expert Delly Mellor shared some savings you can find at some of the local grocery stores.

Tips:

  • Use the grocery store sales flyer to find which items are on sale
  • Look for buy one get one free sales
  • Apply any coupons to the sale
  • If you don't have coupons, many free coupons are available online to print (for ex. my site www.dellysdeals.com has many as well as a coupon database that people can search to help find coupons to match the sale)
  • If you do have coupons, find a store (Lowes and Harris Teeter) that will double your coupons for you to maximize savings
  • Look for special promos in the sales flyers, where you get bonus items for buying specified products or a specified amount of products
  • Look for bonus coupons in the sales flyers
  • Buy a frozen turkey versus a thawed turkey b/c frozen turkeys are half the cost of frozen turkeys. Just remember to put it in the fridge to thaw 2-4 days before Thanksgiving!
