Thrifty Ways to Save for Groceries

by | Jan 22, 2020 | News

Looking for ways to cut down your monthly spending at the super market? Here are ten ways to help you trim your grocery bills.


  1. Make a shopping list and stick to it.
  2. Don’t shop when you’re hungry or tired. You are more likely to give in to impulse buys.
  3. Avoid convenience foods. The cost for prepared food includes labor and packaging.
  4. Only use coupons for things you’d buy anyway.
  5. Apply for a store discount card.
  6. Check unit prices (cost per ounce or pound) Sometimes a smaller bottle of soap is a better value than a big one.
  7. Switch to store brands.
  8. Buy in bulk. But make sure you have space for them.
  9. Grow your own produce. Can or freeze what you don’t eat right away.
  10. Cut the soda and drink more water. The average American consumes 450 cans of soda per year. That costs about $700. By cutting this out, you’ll not only save money, but you’ll also improve your health.
