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.
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.
