    Get a store savings card if your store has one.
    Plain a shopping list before you go to the store.
    Also eat before you go to shop you will not be temped to buy extra things as easy.
    Shop from the back of the store to the front to avoid the stores eye catchers.
    Take a calculator and round everything up if it $1.50 make it $2 this will keep you on or even under budget.
    By store brand when you can and if it costless, and taste good.
    Look at the sales ads to plan your list. If you shop at wal-mart they price match if you have the ad with you.
    Get coupons for items you use.
    For fruit and veggies it is cheaper to buy them whole then it is to buy a bag of say like salad. As frozen can save you money when fresh food prices or high.
    in summer shop at your farmers market, you will save a lot by doing so.
    If able buy bulk and freeze, like onions you can chop and freeze then use them in cooking, just not as fresh because they go soft.
    Shop the day old rack. most stores have them. you will find bread, cakes, and other items that you might need.

    Make out your menu for the week..taking into consideration snacks..drinks...
    For instance plan a roast/potatoes/veggies for Sunday meal..using the leftovers the next day as the base for a stew/ dumplings..adding tomatoes, or other ingredients and make it a soup..Tuesday..Chicken and rice pilaf with veg..Wed..
    leftover chicken and veg in a wrap ot pita...you get the drift...stick to this menu DON NOT DEVIATE from it...each meal to be followed by a small dessert
    ( jello,pudding,brownie etc)..coupons are not needed if you shop at Walmart..they will match any competitor price...and familiarize yourself with store brands, they;re not always the cheapest...

    Make a list and follow it. Don't go up and down each aisle just looking (you're more tempted to buy something not on your list), try the store brand (Publix is great, for instance) and compare prices. Mostly, get the stuff on your list and get out quickly...haha!
