Save Money Everyday – At the Grocery Store

Save Money Everyday – At the Grocery Store

 It is always tough to stay on a budget at the grocery story – there are so many choices.  Here are some tips that may help you as you navigate the food aisles:

  •  Make a list and buy ONLY the items you have written down.
  • Buy only enough perishables that you and your family can eat in a reasonable amount of time.  When you throw out food, you throw out money.
  • Stock up whenever possible.  Buy bulk on frequently used non-perishable items such as canned goods and paper products – especially when they are on sale.
  • Look high and low.  Stores often put the most expensive items at eye level.
  • Beware of the ends. Advertised items are often found at the ends of the aisles; however, they are placed alongside non-sale items.
  • Use coupons with care.  Do not use coupons for items you would ordinarily never buy.  Also, ask if the store will double a coupon or accept competitor’s coupons – you may be pleasantly surprised at the answer.
  • Check for sale prices.  Look at the store entrance for sale flyers.  Also, flyers come in the local newspaper, and you can find coupons online.
