Is Looking at Flyers Really Worth My Time?

Some people think I'm crazy for looking over the weekly flyers and making a list of the deals, they think it really is a waste of time and in the end, doesn't really save me a lot of money.

I could tell you that I get free stuff every week or all the great sales I find in the flyers, but instead, I'm going to show you. 

These are all local flyers that I'm referring to in Edmonton, Alberta for the week of Aug 15-Aug 21.

First up: 

LACTANIA BUTTER 1 lb

You could buy it at Safeway for $6.49

ARM & HAMMER CAT LITTER 6.4 kg

These are not minor price differences of a couple cents.

The butter for example is more then twice the price and advertised as a sale in the Safeway flyer.

I believe it's absolutely worth your time to look at flyers.  

It couldn't be easier with phone and tablet apps like Reebee, Flyerify and Flipp. 

So have a look at your flyers, you may be surprised to find how much you can save!
