Want To Save Money On Your Grocery Bill?

Jan 31, 2008
When it comes to saving money, one of the easiest ways to save it is when you go out to buy your groceries, whether it is for the day, week, or month. There are a few different ways to save on your grocery bill every time you go shopping, but some of us are so busy we do not take the time to think about the best way to do it. Here is a list of just a few different things you can do to save a buck.

One of the best things that you can do when you go grocery shopping is simply to leave the rest of the family at home, especially the kids. Kids throw things in your cart that you might not necessarily notice until you get to the checkout line and by that time, you will probably already be at the front of the line. Instead of arguing about putting it back, most parents simply sigh and purchase the item, anyway. Try to leave the kids at home with a family member or a friend to avoid this problem.

When possible, try to buy things in bulk. If you can afford to buy a 96 load box or jug of laundry detergent, do so. It costs less per ounce than the containers of smaller quantities. Other things that you can buy in bulk easily include toilet paper, paper towels, and other non-perishable items. Even if the item is perishable, you can probably freeze it as long as you have room in your freezer to do so.

Try to plan your meals ahead of time. This is one of the easiest ways to save money, since if you have a plan of meals you want to cook, then you automatically have a list of items that you must have. Shopping with a list helps you easily cut out the things that you do not need.

Try not to buy prepared foods like frozen TV dinners. These are not only unhealthy, but they are penny for penny the most expensive items in the store. They are simply not worth the cost of the convenience 99% of the time. If you absolutely have to buy prepared foods, then you should purchase these in bulk quantities when possible to help keep the price at bay.

These are just a few ways to help keep your grocery bills down, but if you follow them regularly, you will notice a significant difference in the cost of groceries every month.
