Counting coupons, discount cards, etc, what is the typcial percentage of savings on your weekly grocery shopping expedition?

How do you get the discount that you normally receive?  Any tips for getting a bigger discount?

Idk. I don't do coupons because I can't remember them. So no idea. If I were really having tough financial times I'm shop the sales and make my menu based on those items.

I would probably say at least 50%. I use coupons match them to the sales and use any overages for things that are harder to get on sale. I typically try not to pay at all by using my online earnings to cover my grocery bill with coupons and everything I do pretty well spending very little out of pocket.

No idea, because I rarely use coupons....maybe 5% (based on my average weekly spending and the occasional DG $5 of $25 purchase.)

I'd say 5-10% and I use coupons and price matching if that's possible
