The grocery store is full of delicious items that may all seem tempting to buy however use these tips to keep your costs down and not purchase more than you need.
Before Heading to the Grocery Store
Check to see what you already have so you don’t buy more than you need.
Plan your spending to avoid impulse buys like candy bars at the checkout or unnecessary snacks.
Grow your own fruits, nuts, and veggies
Make it yourself to save!
Prepare a menu list of items for the week based on the week’s breakfast, lunch and dinners, around what you already have, and what’s on sale.
If your local area has food co-ops, sign up! A food co-op can greatly reduce your weekly food bill by as much as 50%.
Shop for products before you run out of them. If you run out of an item the price might increase the next time you go to purchase it so buy it when the price is down.
