7. I became strategic and methodical about the sales offered at my local supermarket. Now don’t get me wrong..all because I do not shop a lot at my local markets alot does not mean I do not research their weekly sales and take advantage of them. For example, Publix had a sale on Goldfish crackers for 1.00 a bag two weeks ago. I went into the store and got at least 10 bags..just for a rainy day. Then I noticed that jar of an expensive brand of Fettuccine Alfredo sauce was BOGO free with one retailing for $1.50..needless to say I bought a bunch of those. Whatever the sale is in the paper, I look to see if we eat the food and if it’s a “go” I buy it–even if I do not use it immediately.
All of these things allow me to have a super cheap grocery bill..Just today I went to the Farmer’s Market and spent $75 on a TON of vegetables and some meat! I have been using this method for about a year and ever since I started to do this my bill is cut in half! Now what do you do to save money at the grocery store? Have you tried any of these methods?
