Tips To Easy Savings On Your Grocery Bill

Jul 22, 2008
Well, the economic crunch is finally beginning to hit us in an area that we dreaded the most, at the grocery store, In case you have not noticed yet, your grocery cart is probably a little less full these days for the normal amount of money you spend. Prices on certain necessary items have been slowly creeping up this past year, but now it has gotten to the place where we are really seeing the difference in what a dollar will buy these days at our favorite food store.

If you are one of those people who have never given much thought to how much you spend buying food for your family, you may have to join the rest of us and start implementing a few changes in your buying habits and take advantage of some specific ways to make your grocery money go as farther. For many of us, this will be nothing new because saving money is something we have had to do all along, now we just have try even harder.

If you are someone who just has to buy certain more expensive brands of some things because you have to have that kind, you might have to learn to get over it and try some of the cheaper products available. When you buy store brands or other cheaper priced brands, you will probably see that there is not as much difference in the taste and quality as you thought, but there is usually a big difference in the price and sometimes the amount of product you get. This is one way to stretch your dollar. If you must buy a more expensive brand, search for coupons that will help you save on it.

Some grocery stores have a discount card that you can get that allows you to save. Try to take advantage of the items that the card can be used for that week, but beware that other things that are not available for discounts may be higher priced. Do not buy products at a discount and then throw that savings away by paying too much for other things.

Pay attention to the sales that are going on at all the grocery stores near you. Gather all the sale papers and compare where the products you need are and write them down. If a store only has one or two items that you can get on sale, it may not be worth the extra driving to go and get them. Some stores will have buy one get one free specials on some products. This is great if you use that product a lot. If it is non-perishable, stock up on it if the sale allows it. Learning to cut corners at the grocery store does not mean you can not feed your family well we just have to learn to be smarter shoppers.
