Also, what grocery store do you think is the best value? I moved here from Indiana and found that the food prices here were a lot higher than what I'm used to. (Milk is $2.50 at home, here it's upwards of $4).

Thanks in advance!

All stores (Bi-Lo, Ingles and Publix) have a double coupon policy in place 365 days of the year. Each has their own limits on max value but generally a 50 cent coupon will be doubled at any one of the three mentioned. Occasionally Ingles has a triple coupon week but you have to spend so much and can only use so many coupons per order.

Buy Milk at Aldi or Sam's. It's much cheaper! Transportation is why it costs more down here. We don't have the railways they do up north. I'm formerly from Chicago so I know what you mean!

I do my "big" grocery shopping trips at Wal Mart Supercenter, but I do my smaller fill-in shopping at BiLo. They always double manufacturer's coupons (max value $.60, so a $.60 coupon will get you $1.20 off). You can also combine manufacturer's coupons and store coupons, which is nice, especially when an item is already on sale

I should add that the stores with savings cards (ex. bonus card at Bi-Lo) may only double coupons if you use their card. Bi-Lo and Ingles both have cards but Publix does not.

Also, Bi-Lo has 5% off for seniors on Wed. I know where my husband will be every Wed.

$2.50 in Indiana for milk is a good deal. The national average is $3.65 so we are not much higher than that if you know where to buy it like you mentioned. Although I haven't been there in a few months, Trader Joes had good prices on milk also.

Publix does that on Wednesday's too! I believe with Bi-Lo you have to sign up for senior discount and link it to their loyalty card. At Publix all you have to do is tell the cashier.

Our grocery shopping down here is mainly done at Publix and supplemented by Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. Would be nice to get a Harris Teeter down here at some point though.

HT used to have several Greenville-area locations, but when the company was doing poorly, they retrenched and left this market quite a few years ago.

That's what I've heard. I moved here in 2007 so I guess they were all gone by the time I got down here.
