Good Morning people. It seems like groceries fluctuate in price depending on the store and the day that you purchase them. I’ve been trying to find ways to lower my grocery bill the last few months. I’ve found seven things that I can do to save on my grocery bill. I’m sure they will help you as well.
Have a list
The 1st thing that you can do to save money on your groceries is to have a shopping list. When shopping, you should only grab items that are on the list. It should keep you accountable. It will lessen the chance of impulse buying.
Don’t shop while you’re hungry
Speaking of impulse buying, the next way to save money on groceries is not to shop while you’re hungry. I know we’ve all made this mistake before. You’ve gone to the store while you’re hungry and had planned to grab only a couple items. Then ten minutes later you are at the register with about twenty things. It happens. Make sure that you eat something before you go the store so that it doesn’t happen again.
The third way to save money on groceries is to use coupons. Saving money using coupons has been popular for a while, but within the last few years, people have been taking it to the next level. Some websites show you how to save the most money by using multiple coupons. There are several ways to get coupons these days. Two easy ways to get coupons are to get them out of your Sunday paper or go online and print them.
Shop in bulk
The fourth way to save money is to shop in bulk. It makes sense to buy certain items in bulk. Before you head to the store, you can check online to see which stores have the better prices and then you can go from there.
Grocery stores usually have sales at least once a month. They usually advertise them online or in the Sunday paper. Those sales usually last for a couple of days, so you should have time to get to the store and take advantage of them. Most of the time you can use your coupons for items on sale and save even more money.
The sixth way that you can save money on groceries is by using the stores shoppers card. Kroger is one of the stores that I usually shop at. Their store card allows me to save money on certain things. For example, they may have a deal on bread. By using your card, you may get a loaf for $1.50. Without the card, it could cost you $1.80. Kroger has this type of deal on a lot of the items in their stores.
The final way to save money on groceries is to ditch the name brands and purchase store brands. Store brand items are cheaper than name brands. If its food, most (not all) store brand items taste the same anyway. I buy store brand stuff most of the time.
