Now she regularly saves two thousand dollars a year on her grocery bill and gets back 200-dollars a month in refunds and rebates.
Susan's tips for stretching a dollar:
Another way to save is on the products themselves. Manufactures are so desperate for you to try their products they offer instant discounts and refunds, like a bottle of liquid plumber that offers a full refund.
Walking the aisles of Di Cicco's market in Scarsdale with Susan is like going on a treasure hunt.
On the day we went along, Susan was doing extreme shopping, using only refunds and free coupons from prior purchases, and loading up her cart.
Before coupons, $148.16. After coupons, $9.49.
So if that kind of savings gets your heart pumping, Susan has a website (www.selectcouponprogram.com) with plenty of tips on using coupons.
She also has a free DVD to walk you through the aisles of the grocery store to get the biggest bang for your buck.
