      10 Ways To Save On Groceries

      Saving on groceries is very important because groceries account for as much as 15% of a household’s budget, and food prices increase 3.5% every year on average. No fear though because there are a number of ways to save on groceries that will reduce how much you spend:

      1. Have a shopping plan. It is best to make a list prior to the shopping trip that is based on a meal plan for the week. This allows for a more organized shopping trip with less waste and duplication in the end. Just be sure to stick to the list.

      2. Buy in bulk. Purchase non-perishables at BJ’s, Costco, and Sam’s to get more for your money. Though there is an annual fee, the savings outweigh the nominal amount of the annual fee. Many times you can add another person to the membership at a very low price. To save, add a second person, a sibling, neighbor, etc. and split the total of the two memberships.

      3. Spend time looking for and clipping coupons before creating a grocery list or going grocery shopping. Many stores double coupons, particularly manufacturer’s coupons, so look for a local store that offers this and the time spent will be doubly rewarded. Think extreme couponing, but not so extreme. Get free coupons to start saving.

      4. Ask for an added discount or deal on products due to expire. It is common to request a lower price on a car or even at flea markets when shopping, so consider doing this at the grocery store too. This is particularly effective on baked goods and meats that have a sell by date within 1-2 days.

      5. Purchase generic or store brands when possible. By comparing the ingredients you are assured of getting the same nutritional value but for less. Peanut butter is a good product to start with as the ingredients do not vary much between brands, and it is a household staple.

      6. Grocery shop on a full stomach. This will eliminate over buying and impulse purchases.

      7. Compare your coupons to the grocery list and clip only coupons for products you currently use. Coupons are a great way to save, however, only if used well. Purchasing an item because there is a coupon available can actually lead to extra spending if that item is not needed.

      8. Plan a full week of meals and incorporate dishes that are easy to freeze and can be reheated to enjoy again later on. Also consider planning dishes that use ingredients that are on sale in the weekly store promo. For example, if mozzarella and ground beef are on sale, consider making baked lasagna.

      9. Grocery shop alone. Not only will this give you alone time, but it will help in saving money at the grocery store because there will be fewer eyes looking and wanting the products, which means less extra items bought.

      10. Buy food items that have long shelf life. For dairy and other items that spoil or have expiration dates, take time to look for one that has the sell by date that is the furthest out. Often extra money is spent in having to replace a product that has gone bad before it has been fully used.

      Hope this helps you with your next trip to the grocery store and in saving money in your grocery budget. This list is only a good start on how to save on groceries, so please share ways that you have cut your grocery bill.
