Becoming the Domesticated Diva

Finding my inner homemaker… one flub at a time!

more grocery savings!

on April 21, 2010

That’s right readers – there are even more ways to save on your grocery shopping adventures!  Check out the tips below that I’ve learned, read, or have been passed on by the master grocery shopper – my dad.  🙂

  • If you have room to stock up – do!  I recently purchased 5 boxes of Betty Crocker’s boxed potatoes (Au Gratin, Scalloped, etc) for $5 (on sale for $1 a box)  and saved over $10!
  • Same with bogos – you may not NEED two boxes of crackers, but considering they don’t expire for 6 months or so, why not get one free?
  • Check the dates on meat packages.  Sometimes the price may be different depending on the date it was packaged.
  • Check the sales at the endcaps of aisles, they’re not always the same price in the middle of the aisle – or it may be specialty products.
  • Get to know your meat/deli/bakery person – they’ll give you a heads up on any specials coming up!
  • Make sure you’re getting the most for your money.  Sometimes the larger sizes are a better bargain – sometimes not.  Check the price labels – it will tell you a break down of how much you’re spending per ounce.
  • Stick to groceries only.  When you start to branch out, you usually spend more than you would if you purchased the same products at the Dollar Tree or Wal-Mart.

Stick to these tips and you’ll definitely start saving money!  Good luck shoppers!  😀
