I am THE WORST with coupons. I mean the WORST. I either clip coupons that I never use, clip them only to find out it is not the item I really need, throw the newspaper away before I clip them, or I just don’t have the time to search for coupons. Oh, and then there are the coupons that somehow fall between the seats of my car never to be found or used. So, when it comes to grocery shopping I usually just show up at the store, buy what is or is not on sale, and don’t take much time to compare and save.

It’s a new year though, I am sure I am in the majority when I say that we are trying better to save money, especially when it comes to something as simple as grocery shopping for the family. Luckily, Food Lion has launched a new idea that is wonderful for the worst of coupon users like myself and also for the coupon queens who have been saving for years! And YOU have the chance to win! Keep reading …

Food Lion launched the “MVP  Coupon Hub” which is a simple way for families to save money as they do their grocery shopping. This program allows users to load coupons directly to their MVP cards right from the Food Lion website!  This was so simple. It literally took me less than 5 minutes to watch the video on, register my MVP card (you can easily sign up if you do not already have one), and start loading coupons! One thing I really liked is that there were a large number of coupons that I actually felt like I would use!

This whole concept is just brilliant to me. So now, I don’t need to remember anything when I head to the grocery store. I simply scan my MVP card and all the coupons will be right there ready to use at checkout! In addition, if you like clipping coupons the “old school” way, Food Lion’s website also has the option to drag coupons into your “print” folder and then you can print your coupons right from your computer. So simple!
