Top Cost Saving Ideas and Tips 

Shop fresh - Local farmer's markets, fresh fruit stands and independent farm's provide lower cost, fresher foods


Prepare your own - Prepare multiple meals in advance and freeze for weekly meals instead of buying packaged ready made foods (make 20 pancakes for .95 and freeze for the week instead of buying a package of 20 frozen pancakes for $3.25)


Participate in loyalty programs - Understand exactly how your grocer's loyalty program works for deals, cash back, points or cost saving advantages


Buy this, not that - Some simple options in the aisle can be the difference at the register (buy 12 eggs for breakfast for .85 a dozen instead of sugary cereal for $3.15 or try pre-popped popcorn for .45 bag instead of 2.99 for name brand chips)


Coupons are still worth clipping - If you have access to coupon circulars, take a look every week for items you would typically use


Apps are easy and convenient - One of the easiest ways to save on groceries is to use the apps like the ones mentioned above


Order online - The hardest part of shopping is impulse buying - Shop online and pick-up at the store or have it delivered to ensure you buy only what you need


Know the local sales - Read the grocery circulars and know the sales before you walk into the grocery store


Scratch and dent - Yes, even grocery stores have a scratch and dent bin with items that are perfectly good, but have a scratch or dent on the package


Prepare less than you need - Seems awful, but we usually prepare more than we need, eat more than we should and pitch more than we want


Invest in food containers - Abundant food containers cut down on pitching foods that could be lunch the next day or using wasteful sandwich bags or plastic wrap - also helps you prepare foods in advance instead of buying packaged foods, package your own cut fruits or vegetables instead of paying extra for precut foods


Buy in bulk - If there's a savings buy in bulk - meat in bulk can be cut up, separated and frozen for easy meal prep later 

However, don't assume bulk purchases are always going to save you money, sometimes there's no price difference in equal portions of the non-bulk option and if it's an item that you rarely use, don't just buy bulk in the hopes you'll use it more often before it goes bad; you usually won't


Store brands - Most store brands are considerably cheaper and are usually just as good


Discount stores - Aldi® and Sav-A-Lot® type stores are excellent places to get most shopping done for a considerably lower cost 


Seasonal foods - Don't buy fresh blueberries in January, not only are they more expensive but they are less nutritious and not grown locally


Make your soft drinks - Make tea, lemonade or Kool-Aid® (all can be made with low or no sugar) instead of buying expensive soft drinks or energy drinks


Water from the tap - Like cold water? Instead of bottled water for $3.50 for a 24 pack, put a container of water in the fridge or buy glass bottles for water-to-go
