From a change in product packaging to a great deal on cereal and free pizza, WFAA's "Inside Saver" Laura Thornquist gives the details.


You have probably noticed how some of your favorite products are smaller in size, but the price is the same or even greater.

A recent New York Times article exposed several companies that are re-packaging products like the "Fresh Stack" saltines and graham crackers. There is fewer product, but its the same price. The company says it's more convenient and portable. 

You might notice canned vegetables are dropping to 13 and 14 ounces instead of 16. Baby wipes are going to 72 instead of 80. 

That means shoppers need to get savvy and become smart. Most of all, save where we can and don't pay full price. In fact, check your weekly grocery ads and check out mydfwmommy.com for coupons and hot store deals.

Couponing can be fun and save you a lot of money. Tuesday is the last day to take advantage of Kroger's hot buy four General Mills cereals or snacks and get a $5 Kroger gift card. There is a limit of one per transaction. But, if you eat a lot of cereal, split up your order and use coupons and get the most of the deal.

And one quick freebie to mention. On Wednesdays throughout April, i Fratelli will give you a free large cheese pizza. It is pick up only, and you must bring in your dog and give them a kiss.
Check out i Fratelli's website for more details.
