I talked to a friend yesterday who recently read my new e-book and had just completed her first multiple store shopping trip. She said that she spent less and got more for her money, but the shopping took a long time. I thought that maybe some of you were having the same experience.
I hope that in reading Save More-Clip Less the message came across clearly that you should make shopping and saving money work for you. If you would like to try shopping multiple stores but don’t have a large chunk of time, split your shopping up over two days. I actually split my shopping into two days last week. I spent longer than I anticipated at Walmart and ran out of time, so I visited Save A Lot the next morning.
Our conversation also reminded me that there is an adjustment period with any change we implement in our lives. Be patient as you learn what works best for you.
If you have questions, please feel free to leave a comment on the blog or on Facebook. Readers have left many good ideas on Facebook in the last couple of days and I’m looking forward to even more!

I just read your e-book, and did as you suggested by shopping multiple stores. I found Aldi is cheapest on dairy, Walmart was cheaper on most other items we needed, and Kroger has the meat that we eat (no antibiotics, hormones, etc.).
We actually spent LESS time because we went in with a mission – our list and ONLY our list. We did not look around at end caps, did not go down isles that we didn’t need to go down etc. AND, I spent UNDER my goal of $100.00 – even buying the more expensive meat!
Thank you Peaceful Mom! We really appreciate your investment in our family by sharing your book!
I am so excited for you Melane! Thanks so much for letting me know. It is a great encouragement to know that the book is really helping people.
I price match so I typically just stop at one store for food and then CVS most week as well.
Price matching is definitely a time saver!
I enjoyed the e-book, and you definitely have to find a pattern that works for you…and it should be somewhat fun 🙂 And with gas prices being what they are…cost of the trip is a huge consideration! I live in a small town which makes things easier..but I try to hit the places that are already on my “path” to work, my parents house, church, etc. That way I can make multiple stops along the way when I have time. I have to admit though that some weeks, if the deals aren’t that great, I just don’t shop anywhere.
You are so right Maggie–visiting the stores on your way back from work, church or other outings is a really smart way to make multiple store shopping work for you. I am so glad that you enjoyed the book!
