Teri chose A very deceptive title for this book.

If I had this book alone I would not be able to shop effectively with coupons.

This is a great book for someone looking to save money.

Shopping smart is one thing I aspire to do all of the time, at the grocery store and every where. Buying organic and healthy foods is also a top priority. I have seen other books and websites aimed at helping us save grocery dollars, but they fell short because they depend only on coupons and sales. Umm, hello? I already knew that.

Teri Gault's book goes much further because although she recommends using coupons and finding stores that double or triple coupons she also gives simple straight forward advice as to how to find these stores and offers. Some of her tips include organizing your shopping cart by where you store the items in your home, which I have done my whole life and frankly always attributed to Obessive-Compulsive behavior. Nice to finally know I'm just setting myself up to be more organized and save $$. The book included a very detailed guide to choosing the best grocery store for you.

In addition, she talks about the importance of organic foods and buying locally. Teri includes very useful lists of produce you should spend a bit more to get organic compared with a list of produce that is safe enough when grown conventionally, like Bananas. Of course, if you can afford it, buy all organic. Its better for the environment. But if you are trying to save money, why not spend your money where it is most important to your health and not waste money when the non organic alternative is cheaper and just as healthy? The biggest draw for me was her month by month of what to buy when according to months of the year these items are at their lowest prices. Ever since I got my copy I have been tracking the sale flyers with her list and she is right on. The last half of the book is about entertaining and recipes and household organization.

First off, let me say that I am a "Grocery Gamer" and have been "playing the Grocery Game" with great success for over a year now.

I bought this book as soon as it was published because I thought it would be a good summarization of the "Grocery Game principles". But unfortunately the book did not live up to my expectations.

Only the first 129 pages give tips on how to save money while shopping for groceries while the other 133 pages are nothing more than information on how to throw a party and a collection of recipes.

So instead of buying this book I can only recommend you give the Grocery Game 4-week-trial a shot. This only costs $1 (as compared to the $10 the book costs) and has a much better chance of convincing you that the concept of grocery shopping, stockpiling and saving works than this book.

Format: Paperback
I am a mother of three trying to cope with cutbacks in our family income. I got wind of couponing from some of my friends and after browsing many coupon websites, decided I needed to read some books to learn more as quickly as possible! I read three books: The Coupon Mom's Guide to Cutting Your Grocery Bills in Half: The Strategic Shopping Method Proven to Slash Food and Drugstore Costs, Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey, & Shop Smart, Save More: Learn The Grocery Game and Save Hundreds of Dollars a Month. Each book was very different, so I thought I'd share my opinions- I hope they can help you!
Let me first say what each book had in common: they all promoted their own coupon websites and they all taught about how to get coupons, organize them and shop with them to save on your grocery bill. Shop Smart, Save More spent the least time talking about what I wanted to learn: the nitty gritty! Only 118 pages of this book even attempt to talk about coupons. The rest is about hostessing, at least I think so; I stopped reading. If I had this book alone I would not be able to shop effectively with coupons. This book was my least favorite of the three I read.

The best reason to buy this book: it thoroughly covers tips for going green and buying organic. It also covers how to spot a deal with specific price points and interesting sale cycles.

The best reason to pass on this book: it doesn't give sufficient information. It teases you with bits of info and then wants you to PAY to join the website. Both other authors maintain free websites.

This book is a waste of money. Only a very small portion of it is about how to save money on groceries and even that is encouraging you to use her website. I live in a rural area which only has Rite Aid as a store listed on her site. She does not really tell how to use your own store and most of the book is how to have a party and recipes. A Big Disappointment.

I'm a couponer and becoming a "gamer" for a few weeks now. I was excited to read this book when I checked it out from the library. Teri chose A very deceptive title for this book. I found her plugging her website more than actually writing about shopping and saving money.

Honestly, after only couponing and "cutting back" for a few weeks now, most of the information in this book, I already knew. I only learned 3 things from this book. 1- To record my name on the cover of my coupon binder and offer a reward if found, 2- "The petroleum in 14 plastic bags could drive a car one mile." and 3-In 2006, a new software made web coupons more accepted by stores and these coupons are worth more than the ones offered in the paper.

After chapter 7, it looks like Teri forgot what kind of book she was writing. It then became a cookbook & party planning book. Chapter 8 is called "You're Invited!" This entire chapter is explaining how she "has gotten party-planning down to a science." Quote from her first paragraph on pg 130. Like most of her book, this has nothing to do with her title, "Shop Smart, Save More"

Thank goodness I checked it out from the library and didn't pay for it.
