5 Ways to Save on Groceries

Updated on January 31, 2013

Cutting your bills now a days is a great choice. You can cut your grocery bill very easily with following a few easy steps.

Meatless Meals

This is a great tip, incorporating meatless meals at least once or twice a week can cut down on your grocery budget tremendously. Not to mention it is also very healthy and can taste delicious. Plus, it will allow you to try different recipes that you may not have been brave enough to try. Some great meatless recipes include soups, eggplant Parmesan, and vegetable lasagna. They all taste good and will help you save a decent amount of money.

Grocery Ads

Always look at all of the grocery ads. Never ever miss any because you will see there is a lot of competition between the different grocery stores in your area. This is great for the consumers because this will allow you to get the best deals in town, but you have to scout it out in the ads. Always make a list of all the different products that each and every store is having that week and then figure out what stores you will be getting what.

Another thing to watch out for is some companies will price match competitor’s ads. I would ask your store to see if they do this or not because this will cut down on time that you will be spending at the other stores in your area.

Coupons

Yes, coupons are a great way to save money. Yes, you probably saw the show on TLC called Extreme Couponing, but in reality you won’t save that much unless you do it as a full-time job. However, you can still save a great amount just buy clipping coupons every week, but not to that extent. Plus with the internet you can now find most of your coupons online. Always utilize coupons! Coupons are your friends!

Menus

Make a menu on what you want to eat for the week. This will not only limit the number of trips you make to the store during the week, but it can save you money if you decide to prepare meals off of the items that are on sale that week. Plus you will save gas too, which that money can be put to more useful things.

Avoid Empty Calories

You don’t need cookies, chips and other expensive treats. Why don’t you go off and buy fruit, vegetables, and even cheese? They are not only healthier for you, but they cheaper than other treats that you love to buy. Not to mention, they will give you much more energy throughout the day, so you can keep on going without getting into a slump in the afternoon.

By following these 5 easy tips and tricks, you can save money on your groceries in no time and have more money for your other household expenses.
