Always check your receipt!
  1. Cut coupons.
  2. Plan your meals from the sales flier.
  3. Shop the perimeter of the store as the more healthy food resides there.
  4. Double up coupons with sales.
  5. When you hit a good sale, buy more!
  6. Make a budget and stick to it no matter what. Not a dollar more.
  7. If you don't have enough to buy produce check your list and get rid of the things you don't need. Produce is more important.
  8. Make a list.
  9. Buy only needs.
  10. Don't buy junk food or soda.
  11. Don't let the food go bad and use it all.
  12. Freeze leftovers.
  13. Eat leftovers for lunch.
  14. Don't eat out of boredom find something else to do.
  15. Shop closest to home.
  16. Don't shop before eating.

Save Now

Going on a hungry stomach leads to unneeded purchases.

  1. Buy Store Brands, most are just as good.
  2. Name brand foods with coupons are usually still more expensive
  3. Lower and higher shelves have lower prices; eye level products are in place for insight purchases.
  4. Do not buy already frozen canned or boxed meal, they are more expensive and have a high sodium content.
  5. Take a rain check on that big sale item for next week.
  6. Wal-mart does not always have better prices, actually on food they are more expensive
  7. Shop when most others wont be. Less time = more money saved. "Time is money".
  8. Discounted food in the back of the store has dented cans sometimes half off.
  9. You can pay on credit card and get cash back. Only do this when you set your limit of grocery spending and always pay your credit card off each month.
  10. check the `going out of date` shelf in the super market

    #1 and #13 conflict. Store brands will almost always be cheaper, unless you had a generous coupon (unusual nowadays) or your store will do double coupons (even more unusual).
