Do you know what is better than a grocery coupon for cheap eats? How a bout a free lunch?
Is there anything better than a free lunch? Umm, well, yes there is as a matter of fact. How about a free lunch, dinner and breakfast, or several of them a week? So here is the answer to the riddle, what is better than a grocery coupon for cheap eats? Tons of them that give you free breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Don't think you can eat for free? Guess again, I'm going to tell you how.
I don't know about you, but times are tight, and frankly, food manufacturers are feeling the pinch too with sales in most sectors still slumping. You may be wondering how they are trying to increase their sales and the answer is with coupons, lots and lots of high face-value coupons. So how will this information give you the free eats that are so much better than the cheap eats we all love?
The harder the food manufacturers are trying to maintain their market share, the higher the face values of the coupons become. What does this mean for recession weary consumers? More cash in your pocket when you purchase their products. In some cases free food, and lots of it, can be had with just a little preplanning.
You see, the secret nobody wants you to know is that correct coupon use will often get you a cart full of free items. Here's what you need to know to score your freebies:
Things You Will Need
1. You need lots of coupons, tons of them for like products. Make sure the face values are high from between $.50 to $2.00 each.
2. Sort and store your coupons in a file box, accordion file, or folder for ease of use. You will need to be able to find your coupons when you need them.
3. Find the nearest double coupon store. If you do not have access to a double coupon store in your area, then select the cheapest grocery store in town.
4. Now, get out the weekly sales flier for the store of your choice. Work your way through the ads and match up your grocery coupons. See the deals? You should be able to find about 10-20 items per week that are reduced between 50-90%. Stock up on those, and buy as many as you can.

Tips & Warnings
Warning: with copious coupon use comes the possibility for too much free stuff and an overflowing pantry. Date and rotate your food items to ensure freshness and food safety. I'm not kidding, I get so much free stuff when shopping that I end up donating to the local food bank whenever my pantry gets to full to avoid spoilage. As many as 4 big donations a year.
