6 Ways to Save on Groceries

1. Shop at less expensive grocery stores, such as Food 4 Less.
2. Check the ads from the stores and see what’s on sale. Stock up when it’s less expensive.
3. Shop less often. Plan meals for a few days or the week. Double a recipe and freeze half of it. Don’t forget to write the date and the name of the recipe on the ziplock bag.
4. Use coupons. Use a website to help you track the best time to use your coupons, such as Coupon Mom or The Grocery Game.
5. Order a food box from The Treasure Box or Angel Food. It’s $30 and is supposed to last for about a week.
6. Keep track of how much you’re spending each month on groceries. Before I started keeping track, I had little idea how much we were really spending on food. After you know how much you’re spending, try the above ideas to save.
