Coupon Mom SNAP Challenge Shopping List

The Coupon Mom SNAP Challenge

On December 14th, 2012, Stephanie Nelson demonstrated how to feed a family of four for one week at or under the SNAP (food stamp) weekly budget of $120 for a family of four on The Katie Couric Show. 

This list of groceries cost $210 full price, but after coupons, sales and promotions, Stephanie paid $98.80, a savings of $111.  She was able to buy food for 21 nutritious meals and snacks with five servings of produce per person, per day, as well as some staples that would last for a few weeks (such as flour, sugar, oil, baking mixes).  The list was based on these menus, which were planned around the store's featured sales that week. Remember, the key to saving big on groceries is to plan your menus around what the sale items are rather than planning your menus first, before reviewing your store's best deals that week. 

This particular shopping list was created with deals from CouponMom.com's Stop and Shop Deals list. Half of the coupons used were free printable grocery coupons

THIS LIST IS FROM A PREVIOUS WEEK and is an example of how you can create menus and a shopping list with store sales.  Use your store's CouponMom.com deals list to create your own menus and shopping list based on each week's Best Deals.  Specific items and prices will vary by week and by store chain.
