I remember a time when we’d spend $150-$200 a week on groceries. That’s $600-$800 a month. Today, we LOVE saving. Our monthly grocery budget is now only $350. We don’t eat caviar, but we still eat well!
Tips on cutting your grocery bills in half:
- Go through your local circulars looking for the best deals. Don’t be lazy. Do it. A lot of the supermarkets here do Buy 1 Get 1 or Buy 1 Get 2 or 10 for $10 deals. Beware, just because it’s B1G1 doesn’t mean it’s a great deal. For example, here 1/2 gallons of ice cream can be up to $4.99. I’ve seen them as low as $1.99 for the same brand at another store. Study. Know your prices. The word SALE doesn’t necessarily mean you will maximize your savings. FLIPP is a great app for your phone. It lets you browse flyers, clip deals, and search for specific items. Check out their site here.
