Ways to Save Money on Groceries

When you’re trying to cut back on monthly costs, the quickest way to make a dent in your spending is by starting in the kitchen. Grocery shopping has a way of making or breaking your budget for the month. If you don’t plan ahead, you’ll find yourself spending even more on carryout and restaurant tabs.

Keep yourself from overspending with these simple tips for saving money when buying groceries.

1. Stick to the Grocery List

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when trying to budget for groceries is going rogue from your grocery list. Plan out your recipes for each week and stick to that plan. Avoid going down aisles that don’t contain items from your list to prevent yourself from grabbing nonessentials.

When you stick to the grocery list, you buy only the exact amount of ingredients needed for the recipes you have planned out. Cross off the items as you grab them and move down your checklist.

2. Reduce Wasted Produce

Fresh produce can definitely be moody. One day it’s fresh and the next it’s wilted. Not only is throwing out unused produce wasteful, but it really takes a hit on your grocery spending over time.

If you’re having issues keeping up with your fresh cut produce before it spoils, you can reduce waste with our NatureSeal Produce Extender Packets. Made from a simple blend of allergen-free vitamins and minerals, the solution helps inhibit browning of avocado and guacamole, apples, carrots, celery, peaches and pears without altering the natural flavor.

Eat Healthy. Save Money. Simple.

3. Plan Recipes That Share Ingredients

Ever buy a bag of baby spinach only to have half of it wilted by the end of the week? By choosing recipes that overlap with similar ingredients, you can buy larger quantities to save some cash. You’ll make sure that every bit of that purchase is used and not ending up in the trash.

Just pay attention to products that expire quicker than others and plan those meals at the beginning of the week.

4. Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

When bought in season, fresh fruits and vegetables can be CHEAP. Align your recipes with this Monthly Produce in Season cheat sheet to make sure you’re never overspending each month.

One way to start eating more vegetable heavy meals is to participate in Meatless Mondays. There are so many vegetarian and vegan friendly recipes out there to get inspiration from, so getting started doesn’t have to be intimidating.

5. Grow your Own Vegetables

Want fresh vegetables at the ready without the trip to the grocery store? Why not test your green thumb out and grow some of your favorites right at home! You can save costs on tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini and so much more by growing your own supply.

If you don’t have the room for growing larger vegetables, one of our favorite DIY grocery hacks is this Indoor Mason Jar Herb Garden. Just place these jars in the sunlight on your kitchen counter, and you’ll have fresh herbs for cooking year-round.

6. Buy Generic Products

Brand named items doesn’t mean better tasting or better quality. Look for the generic versions on your next grocery trip, and you’ll be shocked by how quickly you’ll save.

If you’re looking to save even more, make sure you’re aware of where you can purchase products for cheaper. Grab your veggies at the local farmer’s market and buy the rest of your list at your favorite grocery store. It’s all about finding the best deals at the lowest prices.

7. Look for Coupons and Sales

Oftentimes, there are major sales on meat or produce depending on the weekend. Stock up on items that are on sale if you can, especially bulk meats that can be thrown into the freezer until you’re ready to use it.

Coupons are an easy way to save more off the itemized price. Some grocery stores will even apply a multiplier to your coupon depending on the quantity purchased. Check to see if your grocery store offers a loyalty program, where you can stack up rewards for your purchases.

8. Leftovers for Lunch

If you find yourself with leftovers from dinner, be sure to take those meals with you to the office the next day. Leftovers make perfect lunches, and they stop you from making bad choices, like heading to the fast food restaurant down the road.

Think of it this way, if you don’t bring leftovers for lunch, you’re spending extra money AND wasting perfectly good and nutritious food.

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my husband. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and she told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my husband know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Zuma zuk spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com
