    Wanted to share a new spreadsheet I created that will continue to help fellow SCer's stay organized. I love to save money but I dread price matching at the checkout line, especially in a crowded store. The sheet I created takes the pain out of price matching and reduces time spent at the register. I took it for a field test yesterday at my local No Frills and it worked wonderfully. The cashier's who used it were extremely pleased, as I was making their job easier for them as well, and were impressed on how organized I was... all I did was hand them the sheet along with the related flyers and they breezed right through the process... I was done checking out much quicker than normal and didn't have an impatient line of customers waiting behind me!
    I've uploaded this on google documents so feel free to download by selecting "file" than "download as" and save it to your own computer to use whenever you need to make a grocery list. I've attached the link to the spreadsheet as well as an image of what it looks like. Hope you enjoy and happy couponing!

    Yes the green price is the price listed in the other stores flyer I would pricematch down to.

    You're welcome! Price matching was the most stressful thing for me, and this helped me a lot. In the crazy world we live in today, it's important to make life easier anyway you can haha. One of my favorite sayings is, "Work smart, not hard."

    Hahaha, hmmm that actually sounds like an interesting subject to write about. I'm a planner myself, I can't do anything spur of the moment. It takes me about 2-3 nights of just planning looking through flyers and getting everything ready before a grocery trip. Just my personality I suppose, the military helped quite a bit though too haha.

    Thank you! I made this exactly for that reason, saving money shouldn't be stressful and no one should have to say no to an opportunity to save money because of shyness or fear. I hope this helps you and other SCer's, who normally don't price match, to begin price matching more often.
