It is no secret that groceries seem to get more expensive every single year. The problem is that this meaning feeding a family only continues to get pricier even if your income doesn’t rise! I shop for groceries so often – probably more than the average person – and have a few tips on easy ways to save at the grocery store. This isn’t complicated or crazy rocket science, but they will definitely help you save a few bucks and every bit adds up!
Tip 1: Coupons!
- Every single grocery store I shop at has a leaflet of coupons and/or they can be printed out online. I always clip coupons before I settle on my final grocery list. If something you like is on sale than buy it and swap it out for something that isn’t on sale and you can buy later.
Tip 2: Buy in Bulk
- The bulk aisle is a great place to save money. By purchasing only what you need and avoiding packaging you save money and increase yield. Who cares if you bring home dried couscous in a bag instead of a fancy box? It is still the same thing!
Tip 3: Stock Up on Staples
- When you see something that is non-perishable like dried soup or canned tomatoes or dry pasta on sale than by all means stock up! As long as you know you’ll eat it within 6 months and it can be stored in your kitchen cabinets it is worth buying more than you need and saving money in the long run.
