Save Money When Grocery Shopping

by | Coupon Tips

 It is a good idea to be aware of the amount of money that we spend on items when we go grocery shopping on a regular basis. When times are tough, it is this knowledge that can help us to survive on less income than usual, which can help in a big way if we do it consistently. Here are some tips on ways you can cut the cost of your food and household goods while grocery shopping. Before we move on, consider downloading a spending app so you can create and customize a budget. Below is one of my personal favorites. It is free to download. Go ahead and give it a try!

Create a Budget Before Grocery Shopping

If you don’t keep track of what is coming in and out of your home, it will be very difficult to understand what is a reasonable amount to spend on your groceries and household goods. Keep a budget and know what you are able to put towards these items each month. Stick within your budget as best as you can while grocery shopping.

 

 

Write Down Everything You Spend

Keep track of every penny that leaves your home and wallet. Keep a list on a piece of paper that stays in your wallet, or one on your smartphone, or even use some of the new apps that do it for you while you’re grocery shopping. Don’t forget to use it each and every time you shop. Try the spent money app to save some time while grocery shopping.

Watch Flyers

Don’t just throw away the flyers that you find in your mailbox. Sometimes you can find some great deals before you start your grocery shopping. Flyers are also an easy way to shop in several stores and to compare prices without much effort. Make a game plan of where you will shop and when, according to who has the best deals on each week.

Buy in Bulk

When grocery shopping, check the bulk bins to see if you can get merchandise at a lower price. Check out wholesale clubs like Sam’s Club and Costco, because you can often save money when purchasing both groceries and other items there. Sometimes these clubs also have coupons for big ticket items, which makes the savings multiply. If you are buying items online at places like Sam’s, Walmart, Sears, Hobby Lobby, Amazon, Kohls, Target, and almost any brand store you should sign up for Ebates. It’s also 100% free, plus they will give you $10 when you make your first online purchase. You can learn more about Ebates in this article Penny Pinching Groceris or just sign up below for free.

Have a “Buy It Next Time” Rule

Unless you are buying something that is a necessity, make a rule that you will never purchase an item the first time you see it when grocery shopping. This can cut down on the kind of impulse buying that is tempting for almost everyone to indulge in. When you see something you like, make a choice to wait until the next time you come back to buy it. You may find that most things you are supposedly desperate to have are completely forgotten by the next  grocery shopping trip.

 

Do Not Go Grocery Shopping Unless Necessary

If you don’t want to be tempted to spend money, don’t put yourself in the line of fire. This means not going to the shopping mall when you are trying to save money. Avoid any place that you are regularly tempted to spend the cash you are trying to save.

Saving money is a sacrifice and difficult at times, but you can make it more manageable and even fun by putting together a strategy and sticking to it. By implementing some new rules in your shopping, you can save your hard-earned money. Do a little or a lot, and you will reap reward from your efforts.
