Hey there, homebodies, do you ever find it tough to make ends meet when it comes to providing good food for your family while staying within your budget? Well, we’re here to bring some good news - you don't have to break your grocery budget to afford quality groceries! There are many grocery-saving tips that you can use in order to reduce the cost of food. In this blog post, we've compiled a list of 10 grocery-saving tricks that will help you save money and keep your grocery bill low!
Don't go grocery shopping when you are hungry
Grocery shopping when you are hungry makes it much more likely that you will buy things on impulse or get the wrong kind of food. It is better to eat something beforehand so that you have some self-control before going grocery shopping. This one makes a big difference for me!
Purchase grocery items in bulk
Buying grocery items in large quantities may seem daunting at first, but if you plan out what you need and buy a certain amount of that item each time, it can save money! You can then separate bulk items into portions and store for future use.
Consider grocery shopping with a grocery list instead of browsing
This was another game-changer for me personally - it will help you focus on the items that are actually needed and not spend more money than necessary.
Use grocery store apps to save money
Try to be aware of what groceries have deals going on at your grocery store!
Grocery stores often have mobile grocery shopping or grocery savings app features that can help grocery shoppers find deals, coupons, and more!
Consider buying store-brand items instead of name-brand items
Store brands are often much less expensive than name brands, saving grocery shoppers a lot of money. Plus, grocery stores often offer coupons for their own store brand items to save even more!
Use grocery store savings cards to save money
This is a great way for grocery shoppers to get discounts on items at their grocery store as well as in the grocery store where they cash out with rewards points or coupons!
Buy foods that are in season
Save money by buying foods in season. They will likely be less expensive as they are in greater quantity, as well as fresher, more nutritious and more flavorful than produce that’s been trekking across the country!
Check grocery store flyers for deals
Grocery stores often put up grocery coupons and sales on certain items in their weekly or monthly grocery flyer so it's important to check yours before grocery shopping!
Take advantage of the "buy one get one free" sale at grocery stores
This is a great way to grocery shop because you can save money on items that are usually more expensive, like meat.
Go grocery shopping at night for discounted prices
Grocery shopping at night when stores are stocking shelves and prices might be reduced. The produce and meat section is often discounted at night.
