Money-saving Tips for the Grocery Store
- Check the Freezer Aisle: Make sure when you are finding an alternative to fresh produce, you look for an option without all the added sugar. The goal of the freezer section is to cut costs, not create a hidden sugar bomb in your diet. By checking the label, you can lower the amount of money you spend on produce, while still getting all the nutrients you need.
- Planning Meals: We have all been tempted by the colorful displays or hungry stomachs at the grocery store. By creating a grocery list and sticking to a plan, you are able to eliminate the cost of wasted food. Oftentimes, we find ourselves at the store without a list, buying anything that catches our eye on the shelf. Chances are that those products will be wasted. By becoming responsible shoppers, we are able to save ourselves from the cost of a wondering eye.
- Generic, Generic, Generic: A thin wallet’s best friend is the generic brand. The generic option is a great way to save your money. Choosing to switch to a generic option can save you hundreds of dollars a year!
