How To Save Money When Grocery Shopping

We were surprised to see a panic buying cause of shortages on store shelves for food and toilet paper. We recognized that as we spent more time at home, we had more significant needs.

1. Have A Reasonable Shopping List The better your shopping list is, the more productive your experience. Make your grocery shopping list as specific as possible.

2. Use Unit Pricing As A Great Tool Unit pricing is a valuable tool to use to help you find the best prices. The price label on grocery shelves usually includes the unit price for the product.

3. Cut Your Fresh Produce and Grate Your Cheese In a pinch, I will buy fruit, cheese,  and veggies, cut up already. They stay fresher longer, tastier, and are less expensive.

4. Leftovers Provide Benefits Leftovers are the bane of so many people’s existence. Sometimes, leftovers, specially marinated recipes, taste better the next day.

5. Bring Your Phone There are good reasons to have your phone available. The calculator comes in handy for crunching unit prices, comparison shopping, or playing upbeat music to pick up your pace.

6. Use Cash To Avoid Overspending Credit cards are more convenient when I have significant grocery shopping to do. You can track your spending better.

7. Bulk Buys Don’t Work For Everything Buying in bulk does make sense for certain products that don’t have “Best by dates.”  Many household products fit that bill.

8. Buy Generic Brands Buying generic brands for food, drug, and household products at supermarkets and wholesale stores is a terrific way to save money.

9. Buy In Season The words are a reminder that we should value our seasons. And so too, our seasonal foods. Sure, it is always fun and convenient to get a pomegranate when we want to have one.

10. Go To The Farmer’s Market Farmers are typically proud of their offerings,  appreciative of your purchases, happy to share information about their crop.
