Owner of MVParentonline.com, Kelley shares tips on how to save before heading to the grocery store.
To check it out first hand, Eyewitness News shared the experience of her coupon savings.
Kelley says it starts with planning.
"You have to start watching the weekly ads. The prices change weekly. They change between stores," she said.
The night before her trip to the grocery store she makes a list of what she needs.
"Having a list is so important because it kind of keeps you focused," said Kelley.
Salamone has coupons saved and organized in two different binders.
That way, it's no problem finding them before the store.
"Some of them are the ones I saved, some coupons have a very long expiration date," said Salamone.
When she's at the store, Kelley gets what she needs based on her list and coupons.
Sometimes she says you have to make some changes.
"They don't have Vidalia onions so I'm going to use the sweet onion instead," said Kelley.
On our trip with her, she even got a rain check on some items that were sold out on Friday.
"I'm going to get four bags of veggie chips for free," she said.
Kelley also sets a goal for every grocery trip.
It's to stay under or at just about $50.00
Her grand total before all the coupons was $158.00
Afterwards, she paid just about $54.00
"That's a good receipt right there. I should frame it!"
Kelley says a lot of couponing is trial and error.
She says don't get upset if you didn't save as much as you thought, as it takes some practice.
