Even if you don’t relish the idea of clipping paper coupons, sign up for your grocery store’s loyalty and e-coupon programs.

For example, as a Midwest shopper, Meijer is my go-to grocery store. Its mPerks program lets me clip virtual coupons and sign up for personalized rewards. For example, if I spend a certain amount within a month’s time, I get $20 off my next shopping trip. It’s a simple way to save without needing to do anything more than punch in my loyalty number during checkout.

Meijer certainly isn’t unique. Next time you go shopping, swing by the customer service desk and see if your store offers a loyalty or e-coupon program.
