    Saving money and getting deals at the grocery store is by no means a new trend. From the days of S&H Green Stamps to today's television shows about extreme couponing, people will always do what it takes to get the most out of their hard-earned dollars.

Commissary shoppers save an average of more than 30 percent on their purchases, which is about $3,400 annually for a Family of four. This benefit is even more important today in our current economy." The 30 percent average savings is a Defense Commissary Agency standard -- meaning shoppers who purchase groceries at the Fort Campbell commissary can expect to see these savings all the time, according to Patricia King, acting store director.
