Rising food prices are causing people to look for all kinds of ways to save money on their grocery bills. Clipping coupons from the paper or reading through the weekly circulars sent out by the major grocery store chains each week is a time consuming process that doesn’t provide the customer with all the deals available to them.

So put away the scissors, save the circulars for the bottom of the bird cage, get out your mobile device, download these apps, and start saving money on your food bills!
