Giveaway: $25 ShopRite Gift Certificate

by Kimberly Hickok

It’s giveaway time! I recently had the opportunity to tour a ShopRite that opened in my area. I had a blast. The selection was great and I was thrilled with the number of local products that they carry.

When they asked if I would be interested in doing a giveaway, I said ‘YES’. So, for you, dear readers this an opportunity to win one of three $25 ShopRite gift certificates.

Just so you know, I’m not employed by ShopRite and I’m not getting any compensation for running this promotion.

Next, I need to let you all know that I’m thrilled that ShopRite has come to my area. There isn’t one that’s in my normal traffic pattern so I recently took advantage of their Home Delivery service. Sweet!

ShopRite Home Delivery

Now, on to what you need to do to be eligible to win your $25 gift certificate. Ready? I’ve decided to keep this simple. Just answer this question in the comments section below:

What is your best grocery shopping tip?

I’m not entering the contest, so I’ll tell you my favorite tip – I make my grocery list by section trying to follow the store’s aisle layout (go to the Customer Service desk and ask for a store layout) and I do my best to stick to my list.

This giveaway ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, October 21. The three winners will be picked randomly by the “And The Winner Is” widget. One entry per person, please.

Good luck!

I always make sure I only go shopping with a list. If you’re out running errands, or on your way home from work, don’t just think to yourself “Oh, I need some stuff… I should go shopping”. You will end up either buying things you don’t really need, not getting everything you do, or both!

Know your prices – for the things you buy, know at what price you will buy them and at what price you will take a pass. For me Arnold 100% whole wheat bread is $3. If it’s $3.50 I’ll buy it elsewhere. If it’s $2.50 I might buy two. Sometimes Haagen Dazs goes on sale for $2.50 a tub in which case I might buy eight containers to shove in the bottom of the chest freezer.

NEVER take a hungry husband shopping with you!

Give yourself a “splurge” budget. You know it’s not realistic to expect that you’ll stick to your shopping list to a T. Give yourself a small budget that can go towards a frivolous item.

My best shopping trip happened uears ago aan can never be repeated. I used to take my grandmother shopping. At first I was simply the sriver and company. After a while there was oxygen tanks, strollers for my kids and a motorized scooter involved!! I’ll never forget the time my Nanny took out a display with that scooter and kept going lime nothing happened!!!
I laughed till I cried while picking up hundreds of cans of vegetables!!!!
I miss you Nanny!!!

Arm with coupons and exact shopping list, never shop when you’re hungry.

Use the “shop from home” option… You make a list AND stick to it AND there’s nothing on an end cap to tempt you away from it!

Dina Van Auken October 19, 2012 - 1:49 am

Make a need and budget friendly list and stick to it! Coupons are important too. These days you can get online and have the coupons loaded onto your discount card. The shop online and pick up at store option is a life saver.

Don’t bring your children!!!! They will tempt you to buy things not needed and distract your shopping. 🙂

I always email myself my grocery list. The email goes to my phone… and now I don’t forget anything (no leaving the grocery list on a paper at home).

Amy October 19, 2012 - 12:23 pm

buy as much as you can in the produce section!

Erin October 19, 2012 - 8:20 pm

I pre-plan meals for the week….saves a ton of money when I only buy what I need!

I, like many, make sure I get refrigerated and frozen things last. When u get to the checkout counter I make sure to put all of these cold items together and request that they be bagged together. This way it helps to keep all the cold food from getting warm on the drive home.

Always make a list, shop thru your own pantry and fridge/freezer first. Plan a menu to make your list.

95% of my grocery cart is sale items. I make a list of what I want from the flyer, and clip my coupons for those items to my list. I make sure I bring my coupon folder because heaven is finding Manager Specials that you have coupons for. And I browse the shelves. Two weeks ago they had a new (to me) brand of marinade onsale for $1.99, and each bottle had a 75 cent use now coupon on them. We bought 2 flavors that looked good and with double coupons, each 16 oz bottle cost $.49! By the way, the marinade was delicious!

Get your husband to do it like mine does. And because he loves to cook too, it all works out. Am I lucky or what?

Sue Walter October 21, 2012 - 3:30 am

Hi Kim! My tip is to keep your reusable shopping bags in your front seat so you remember to bring them into the store. If they’re in the trunk/back seat I always forget them.

Cheers!

Make sure to look over the weekly sales paper to get all the bargains of the week!

Christine HarveyB October 21, 2012 - 12:17 pm

I am a bargain food shopper. I of course buy things on sale and I buy things with coupons. One thing my dad taught me was to look for what he called bargains – things on sale with a coupon – especially doubles. This was back in the late 70’s/early 80’s! One big tip is if you can get a TU “EarlyBird” paper that has the Sunday Coupons on Saturday – you’ll find some things that are currently on sale – NOW you have the coupon!! Also if you DON’T use your coupons right away ..often right when those coupons are about to expire in the next 3-5 days – the item should be on sale… All a game. Just have to figure out the unwritten rules!

My tip is know the isle order to easy find items so you spend less time in store as possible
