10 Simple Ways to Save Money on Groceries

Grocery shopping doesn’t have to be a huge drain on your monthly budget!

By following these ten easy tips, you’ll be able to make the most out of your grocery money each month.

  1. Plan your meals! I can’t stress just how important meal planning is. By planning your meals and grocery shopping according to that plan, you will save time and money and defeat the impulse to go out or order take out. **Download our FREE Meal Planning Printables!**
  2. Shop at multiple stores. I know this isn’t fun, but by shopping at discount grocery stores {Aldi, Save a Lot, etc} and then only going to the big name grocery stores {Food Lion, Kroger, Harris Teeter, Wal-Mart} for what you can’t find at the discount stores, you’ll save big bucks.
  3. Be smart with coupons. Coupons don’t always save you money. If you don’t need it, don’t buy it, no matter how great the coupon deal is.
  4. Watch the weekly ads. See what each store has on sale each week, and then shop those sales. Most grocery stores begin new sales on Wednesdays.
  5. Limit trips to the grocery store. This is simple, the less often you visit the store, the less opportunity you have to spend money.
  6. Buy in bulk. This means spending more money upfront, but will usually result in savings in the long run.
  7. Ask for rain checks. If there is an item that is on sale and the store is sold out of that item, ask for a rain check.
  8. Plant a garden/raise your own livestock, etc.
  9. No impulse shopping. Stick to your list.
  10. Don’t go grocery shopping when hungry! Another no-brainer, but it’s true!

  1. Try to go at it alone! As a single-parent I sometimes can’t help it, but my mom still has one child at home and was shocked by the amount of money she saved when she left my brother behind.
