Retro Housewife Survival Guide - Coupons

Hi All,

I have started making use of coupons for everything I buy - I am now that annoying lady in the grocery store with the stack an inch thick. (Sigh). I never used to do this, but I have realized that you can actually save quite a bit of money this way - if you are disciplined and don't fall for the little tricks.

Here are some of my tips so far:

  1. Sign up for - even if you don't use their delivery service, you can find tons of coupons to use when you go shopping at Vons. Just print them out and go! No searching through the newspaper with scissors in hand. Plus, I have found that having an account with their delivery service can get you out of a pickle at times. Like the time my 15 year old son stayed home when we went to Tahoe. We needed to extend our trip a day, and he had eaten all the food (he and friends as it turned out). Since he can't drive to the grocery store, we would have had to let him starve or come home as planned! Instead, he got online and did some grocery shopping of his own which was delivered the next day. Happy kid, happy parents.
  2. Safeway is what Vons is called in some places - so same deal there. Here is a coupon for their delivery service: Save $12.95 with online grocery shopping and home delivery from
    Shop Now
    - (nifty button)
  3. Or if you live in Philly or DC, "Grocery delivery service is available in and around the Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan Area and Washington D.C." from It seems to me that Genuardis is also related to Safeway and Vons...
Happy Saving!
