Tips for your grocery shopping

Woman grocery shopping

A trip to the grocery store can be a significant drain on the budget.With food costs on the rise, it’s more important than ever for consumers to be savvy about their grocery shopping. Check out these 6 easy ways to change your grocery shopping habits.

  1. Set a budget and stick to it – It’s all about goal-setting.
  2. Use the cash envelope system – at the beginning of the week or month, put the amount of cash you plan to spend on groceries in the envelope, and ONLY take that cash to the store.
  3. Make a detailed list – you must plan out what you’ll make for breakfasts, lunches and dinners for the next week and then write out each ingredient you’ll need for those meals plus a few snacks.
  4. Make economical substitutions – buy the store brands instead of name-brand products.
  5. Buy clearance items – some grocery stores regularly put soon-to-expire products in a special clearance bin, marked 30% or 50% off.
  6. Stop wasting food – you can put a stop to the waste by making sure to use ingredients before they go bad and by not putting too much food on your plate.
