Quick Grocery Tips To Get More At The Store

By Harper G. Samuels

If you are like a lot of people who have taken a hit in the bank account over the past few years, cutting costs and saving expenses is more important than ever. It’s not enough to penny pinch at the gas station to find the lowest price and saving a dollar here or there. If you take that same focus and determination to examine your grocery bill and how you can trim the costs, you could save a considerable amount every month.

Let’s examine some of the simple ways to cut the costs of your monthly grocery bill.

1. Begin at the easiest, most reliable source – the Sunday newspaper. The pile of “Free Standing Inserts” as they are called can easily be clipped and saved in just a few minutes. One or two coupons saves you more than you do by penny shopping at gas stations. Another thing to keep an eye out for is the local store coupons that allow you to double the savings of a manufacturers coupon. Save yourself $10-$20 here with just 5 to 10 minutes of work every week.

2. Hop online and hit the search engines. If you use a particular product and don’t find a coupon for it in the paper, you might find it online. Search for the brand name or, if you don’t need a particular brand, search for the type of product. Often you might find competing brands that are aggressively battling each other for customers and offering coupons at their sites.

3. We’ve talked about the Sunday coupons, but you can also find printable store coupons right now. Do a search for “printable store coupons” and you will find a number of sites. Many of them are free. Just sign up and you can start printing product coupons immediately. Again, 10 or 15 minutes spent here could save you $10-$15 at the cash register.

4. Avoid the impulse buys. The warehouse stores like Sam’s or Costco will kill you here. You go in there for your staples, but you come out with a variety of other things. Plan your meals and shopping and stick with the plan. Anytime you begin splurging on those impulse purchases, you destroy your grocery budget quickly.

5. If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve got a yard and some space you aren’t using. Maybe you’ve even got an automatic watering system already. Why not set aside a few square yards for vegetables and herbs? Quality veggies from water you are already probably using on that space can cut your grocery bill. Instead of buying those expensive vine-ripened tomatoes, now you’ve grown them yourself right in your backyard.

With a simple game plan and some good habits, you can trim that monthly food bill considerably. At the end of the month, how much time did you really spend? One or two hours? And if you’re able to save $50 or $100 dollars, wasn’t that time well spent?
