*Please scroll down for some other ways to save on your grocery budgets without double coupons.
BREAKING NEWS - Kroger (NKY/Cincinnati/Dayton Division) has decided to discontinue the use of double and triple coupons in more areas of the country, effective March 1st. There are 118 stores that will be seeing this change.
It is a sad, sad day in the couponing world.
Make sure you take advantage of their double couponing program before the new policy goes into effect on March 1st. Even if you are not in this particular region I have a feeling this is a glimpse of what is to come for all regions.
So what does this mean to all of us Money Savers here at Saving Dollars and Sense?
Well hopefully it will mean we will get smarter about how to spend and save our money in new ways! I am the kind of person that doesn’t like to put all my eggs in one basket
- Menu Planning still is my #1 money saving tip for grocery shopping!
- Drugstores still offer really great customer incentive programs that you can use to save on just about anything and I’ll continue to share the drugstore deals with you!
- Shopping online is many times a better deal for me than in the stores and I feel very VIP when I can have my stuff delivered to me
I certainly hope that other grocery retailers do not decide to follow Kroger’s lead. I know that so many of us have learned how to use double coupons properly as a way to save on our grocery budgets and it saddens me that those who weren’t being ethical with coupons have hurt those of us who have followed the rules all along.

But I’m afraid to say I saw this coming back when Extreme Couponing started to blatantly show coupon fraud to everyone who watched. Then new couponers wanted to go out and do the same thing they saw on the show. In fact I had plenty to say on the matter after I watched the very first show.
I am not too worried about this sad news because I know that all it means is I will need to find new creative ways to stretch our finances and I plan to share everything I find with you here at Saving Dollars and Sense just as I always have!
Thanks My Litter!
