I check the circular before going to the grocery store and see if any of the items I need are on sale. I also use coupons faithfully and save a between $50-$75 per (large) grocery trip.

When I buy online, I always look for discount or free shipping codes.

I don't buy what I don't need.

This all the way! Once you start shopping by unit price you notice that many "sales" aren't such bargains at all and buying big doesn't always guarantee get you the best price........not shopping hungry can really save you too.

In my opinion a good shopper never follow offers and discount. Agood shopper check the smallest detail of a product/service then compare it with other service provider to check for the actual price in market.
