I don't tend to see huge markdowns. I buy 95% of my food from Trader Joe's, and as far as I know they don't do sales or coupons, but their prices are more reasonable than the other stores here to begin with.

I shop for non-food items and drinks (pop and sparkling water) at King Sooper's (Kroger), mostly for convenience- in my 10 minute commute, I pass 3 of them . They tend to have sales on the drinks I get that are like "buy 3 12 packs for $11" or something like that. When you consider it's often $4.50-6 for one 12 pack, that's a decent deal.

I'm sure there are better deals to be had if one really takes the time to sift through/find all of the coupons and hunt for deals. Back in the day I saw a few episodes of that "extreme couponing" show on TLC. While the people on the show obviously did well in regards to shopping, many of them admitted to spending 40 hours or more per week on their couponing/shopping. You'd be far better off financially getting an even minimum wage job for 40 hours per week. And who needs 100 bottles of ketchup? They often bought stuff in bulk over and over again that it seemed like would never get used.
