Slater 0 Comments

After transportation and housing costs, food takes up a lot of the average household’s budget than anything else. You’ve always seeking ways to cut your transportation and housing. Now let’s look at a couple of ways to trim your food budget. You can do it without having to starve to death.

Set a Budget, and Stick to It

These are the first and last words in trimming your grocery bill. It’s all about setting goals. You will never be successful unless you are clear on what you are attempting to do.

The simplest way to begin with a grocery budget is to save a couple of receipts, figure out how much you typically spend on average, then deduct 10% from that amount. If you easily accomplish this, you can go ahead and reduce your budget even more.

Don’t Shop the Same Store Each Week

Shopping multiple stores is important to paying less for food, but it’s a strategy that many folks balk at because it might be time consuming. Here’s the way it works. You don’t have to shop at three stores every week, wasting time and gas running from store to store. Instead, be smart. When your store sales paper arrives, find the best deals in the stores around you, then pick which store will help you save the most this week.

Coupons

From everyone who does it, you can believe that coupons are worth the time they take to load on a store card, print, or clip. Digital coupon for stores bring around 45% in savings.

You can save more than 50% every week using them. Some stores offer freebies every week too. It pays tremendously to get a store card. Consider this, if you use just five $1 coupons every week on items you frequently buy, you save over $200 every year.
