Food costs are high because oil prices are high. The trick is to find an easy way to lower food costs through grocery coupons. Actually, the real trick is to lower food costs without lowering your standard of living. Oil is at the center of your food costs, because it is used for everything from the fertilizer to pest-control, harvesting and transportation to the store. In this article we'll look at using grocery coupons to lower food costs (both at home and dining out). Major Grocery stores offers Grocery coupons almost weekly. The power of promotion, via grocery coupons is a great way to lower costs without lowering your standard of living.

While there is nothing we can do about the price of oil, there is a way to lower food costs (and other household goods) without feeling like you're chewing on shoe leather. The game involves using the concept of promotion to your advantage. A favorite promotional gimmick that has been around for about 100 years, is that of the coupon. Manufacturers and promoters love the coupon, because it has no real cost unless you actually buy their product. The challenge for the coupon savings is, it is time-consuming for you. Now, thanks to the Internet, you can lower your food costs, along with saving on your other household needs, as well as dining out using coupons more efficiently.

Tcat recently discovered, what over a half million other people already know. This is the website couponmon.com
To get anywhere in the website, you must register. However, the registration is free. for those of you who do not trust passing out your e-mail address, may I suggest that you first visit bugmenot.com and get a disposable e-mail address for registration.

While on the topic of bugmenot, I should point out they also have coupon codes for online retail stores, as does couponmom.com

Overall I have found couponmom.com to have more savings options than retailmenot.com however it is quick to check both.

What most impressed me about couponmom.com was grocery deals by state. Founder Stephanie Nelson now has 10 employees keeping couponmom.com running. As a road warrior, I find being able to zero in on deals local to where I have landed for the week to be quite a time saver in cutting my travel costs. I hope you lower your costs with ease as much as I have.
