Strategic Shopping is about combining sale prices, savings programs and coupons to pay the lowest possible prices for all of your grocery and household items.
For most people, the time spent planning and organizing smart shopping trips will actually have a higher financial return than going to a part-time paid job. For example, if you save $100 on a shopping trip because you spent two hours planning your deals list and organizing coupons, your average hourly rate would be $50 an hour. Keep in mind that you do not pay income taxes on savings, so you'd have to earn $75 an hour or more to take home an extra $50 in income.
