Saving money on food

Saving Money on Food

Here are a few quick tips to write down and keep in mind.

A. Coupons- Manufacturer coupons, store coupons and sometimes even competitor coupons. B. Discounts- Look for sales and clearance items, sometimes prices are marked down for a period of time or on a certain item. C. Meat- Meats are usually expensive so try to look for sales of the week and stock up then. Keep a freezer to load up on meat. Again coupons are good if you can find them for meat. However, I suggest hunting. I know, I know...some people will not do this and that is your personal choice. If you or your spouse don't mind getting your own meat this way -this by far is the best solution. You know that your meat didn't get hormones and it's much cleaner/safer. Fishing is another way to save on meat. You can go for the smaller packages of meat and mix it with pasta or rice.

D.Weekly Ad- Look through and see which stores have the best deals. Circle them and get those coupons together and see how much you can save. E. Restaurants- When going out to eat be sure to look for specials or coupons before you go. If you have children then be sure to look for websites where kids can eat free. Drink water instead of buying a drink. If you combine these tips, you can save greatly on your tab. Also, ask for more rolls! Most restaurants give freebies for you to much on before you order. Make use of this and keep this in mind when you order. Maybe you just want to go out and get away from the house. Order a salad, water, and eat those rolls. :) You will save so much. This isn't for everyone but it can save many dollars over time.

F. Grocery List- Be sure before you go to the store to make a list. If you make a list and stick to it, you won't buy things you don't need. G. Fruits and veggies- These can be very costly, be sure to look for "in season" fruits and veggies. Be sure to check your fruits by smelling them or by appearance. Look closely. If you veggies or fruits are old then there is no reason to buy them. When you get them home you will have to eat them immediately.

These are just a few of my tips to save money on food. Hope it helps you, like it has helped me.
