Saving money on groceries is important for all Canadians. Your grocery budget is one of the highest variable costs in your monthly budget. My family has saved over $3,100 using coupons since June 2010. It may not sound like a lot of money but this is money saved after taxes that we can use to put towards our TFSA or RRSP savings accounts.
Coupons are great because it helps you extend your after-tax income. With a marginal rate of close to 30% in my province, I would have had to earn an additional $4000 to match the return using coupons gives.
How can I get started?
