*Please remember that we do not shop like normal families.  We stockpile our groceries.  We buy fruits, veggies, dairy, and meat (if we don't already have it) on a weekly basis. I usually use catalinas, ECBs, RRs, and overage from coupons to buy the things I need (along with giftcards and more). 
*Free Samples -I usually receive in the mail. I only count the products I could buy from the store in the travel section or on the shelves.  I do not count 1 pantyliner or 3 diapers, ect. 
*Others- included savings on doing things ourselves (car repairs, haircuts, dog grooming, ect), Free magazine subscriptions, other savings at retail stores and online, and cutting costs on bills.
