My husband and I are moving to AK this fall and I love to use coupons to shop for groceries! I have great success here in OK but I am wondering if there are any good grocery stores that are really coupon friendly in Anchorage/Eagle River (like ones that double coupons)? Thanks!!

There are two: Fred Meyers and Safeway. Also there is a Costco and super Wal-mart and Sam's Club. I don't know of them ever doubling coupons. Sometimes they have buy 1 or 2 and get one free. I really don't bother with coupons enough so maybe someone who does will have more info.

We've been using more & more coupons. The stores here do not do double couponing.
With careful planning, you can definitely save some money, but it's not as much as you are used to.

I have heard that Fred Meyer will stack manufacturer coupons with their store coupons. Do you know if that is true? Their website's coupon policy info isn't very clear about that.

Also, do you follow any coupon bloggers specific to that area that do match-ups with current coupons and current sales?

I think I may have been spoiled here in OK to be able to get my grocery budget under $400 a month for a family of four (including personal care, laundry and all cleaning products)! I know I won't be able to keep it that low in AK but I am sure going to try to get close!!!

I don't think any of the stores here are gullible enough to allow the extreme couponing done in the lower 48

I don't think what I do would be considered "extreme." If I find a really good deal, I do try to buy several of that item but not clean out the store by any means. I do however, try to maximize my savings and that has proven "extremely" beneficial for my little family! Plus, one of the best things about it is that you keep a lot of stuff on hand so you actually have to go to the store less!

$400 a month? wow. Can't imagine that being possible up here.

I'm trying to figure out how much I spend on groceries per month.. I'd say at least $600. And that's just for my family of 1: me myself and I!
