I love adding money tips to my arsenal of savings. With a little extra time and planning, it is possible to save money on food and feed your family on a budget. Save money on food with the fifteen tips I have listed below for you.
For laundry detergent use a powder or crystal-like detergent such as Purex. Liquid detergents are expensive, and most of it is just water!
Check the bottom shelves. Prices are usually cheaper than the products at eye level.
Write down what you are going to need for the week before going food shopping. Include snacks and stick to that list.
Print your coupons.com from inboxdollars.com. They will pay you ten cents for every coupon you redeem.
Take a notebook with you to the grocery store. Write down prices and compare them with other nearby grocery stores. Danny and I usually shop at 1-3 stores to get all that we need for the week.
Put off a visit to the grocery store until it’s necessary. Get creative with what’s in your fridge.
Bring your coins with you when you shop. It will be a little extra to carry, but it’s still money!
Use generic or store brand products as opposed to brand names.
Price per unit. Products that are cheaper may actually be so because there is less in it!
Use coupons for items you buy regularly. Clipping coupons for products you might need leads to extra spending.
Sign up for store loyalty programs. CVS has a great one, and I always have coupons to use.
Buy toilet paper in bulk, not food. Unless your family is big, your buy at Sam’s Club may go bad. Things like hand soap, laundry detergent, and toilet paper have a long shelf life.
Organize your wallet. You should know about how much cash is on you. Have a separate section for coins and another one for receipts.
