Good luck everyone. I am so excited to learn some new ways to save on my groceries.
I definitely save money on groceries, and food in general, for my family of five when I take the time to meal plan. Ideally, I plan meals around the ingredients I already have on stock. That keeps food fresh and regularly rotated, and it keeps me from reaching for the phone and ordering pizza come 5 o’clock. 🙂
I buy everything that I can from CVS for a couple of dollars (if that) a week! So any cosmetics, bath items, personal care/hygiene products, OTC medication, paper goods, etc, I get for next to nothing by using coupons and other factors!
That greatly reduces my grocery bills, because I’m only buying food (on sale and with coupons) at the grocery store, and I cut out all of the non-food items!
Here is my latest post about it: http://knsfinancial.com/cvs-shopping-for-the-week-of-10-03-10-saved-116-spent-1-made-46/
My grocery tip is to get your fruit and vegetables from the green grocery and not from the supermarket. Green grocers buy these items in large quantities and pass off these savings to you, so they are often cheaper than at the grocery store. Also, they turn over these items at a much faster rate so they are usually incredibly fresh. I spend a maximum of $20 at the green grocer and usually go home with 2 big bags full of things.
Thanks for this, great information
This site is the most useful thing i’ve seen for a while. Thanks!
This is a good,common sense article.Very helpful to one who is just finding the resouces about this part.It will certainly help educate me.
My tip is to use coupons and the store sale ad. I plan my meals around the ad, then marry the coupons I have with it. I usually save $30-$50 each trip! Thanks
I love amazon
