How To Save Money At The Grocery

Groceries are an unavoidable expense each week. While the expense is unavoidable, you can do several things to reduce the amount that you spend during each trip. Here are a few ways to do just that.

  • Write out a meal plan for the entire week that includes each meal and a few snacks.
  • Based on that meal plan, build your grocery list.
  • Never grocery shop when you are hungry. A hungry shopper tends to grab more impulse items.
  • Comparison shop for every item. Buying name brand foods can add hundreds of dollars to your grocery bill each year.
  • Never neglect coupons, but look to see if a bargain brand is cheaper even after the coupon offer from a name brand.

These tips will help you lower your grocery bill and avoid the need for Florida credit counseling. Additionally, if there is a dollar store in the area, shop there for spices, cooking oil, laundry detergent, and other sundries. Saving a few dollars on each trip adds up as long as you do not have to travel too far to achieve the savings.
