Easy shopping hacks to get your groceries for less!

  1. Plan your meals. Save cash (and time) by thinking ahead about dinner for the next five to seven days. Make a shopping list from the weekly ads, stick to your list, and stick to your budget. A product sale cycle is 4-6 weeks, so buy enough to last until the next sale cycle.
  2. Plan ahead instead of “need shopping”. Check your cupboard, fridge, and freezer and jot down what you need before you go to the store. Keep a running list of items you run out of during the week. Buy groceries, cleaning supplies, paper products, toiletries, & over the counter drugs, when on sale & before you need them. Now, you can “shop” from your pantry!
  3. Buy produce in season. In-season produce is usually less expensive and better tasting. Frozen plain vegetables (no sauce/chemicals) are great for last minute. When frozen veggies are on sale, buy more than you need for that one week.
  4. Buy meat on sale. Meat and poultry can keep in the freezer for at least 6 months, so stock up when the prices are good. Buy enough to last until the next sale cycle. (Fall/Winter has more sales on roasts and beef | Spring/Summer the sales are chicken and hamburger) Bonus: You’ll always have a last-minute meal on hand.
  5. Remember: Convenience costs. Pre-chopped vegetables and pre-cooked deli items may save time, however, they are almost always more expensive than the “do-it-yourself” version.  The exception to this rule is when you are short on time. (Time saves you money and money buys you time)
  6. Buy ahead. Stock up (ideally a 6 month supply) on paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, toiletries, & cleaning products (non-perishables) when they are on sale and before you need them. (Grocery store sales can be lower priced than the Bulk stores like Costco or Sam’s Club)
  7. Eat your leftovers. Cut down on food waste by “recycling” last night’s meal into tonight’s delicious one.  (When food is thrown away it is a waste of money)

TO REVIEW: Plan ahead, only buy sale items, stock up to shop from your pantry & freezer.
