Are you paying for air?

When bargain hunting, it is essential to have complete focus. This is why it is suggested that you shop alone and at a time when there is a smaller crowd inside the supermarkets. It takes skill to find the best deals. For instance, you can get an easy discount when you use coupons like this SAVE $1.00 on ONE (1) 144oz or larger XTRA or TWO (2) 75oz or smaller XTRA, XTRA Nice ‘n Fluffy Softeners, or XTRA Sure Shot Paks. But to maximize the savings from your coupons, there are other techniques you can employ.

For starters, it is important to watch the weight of the items you place inside your basket. Say one brand of crackers costs $4 and the other $4.50. But before you assume which is cheaper, take a closer look at the net weight and pick the box that contains more actual food. You want to pay for content, not air in the packaging.
