1. Plan Your Meals
When it comes to saving money at the grocery store, planning is essential.
2. Stick to Your Grocery List
Once you’ve planned your meals and made your grocery list, stick to it.
3. Cook at Home
Cooking at home is much cheaper than eating out.
Make it a habit to cook at home, rather than eating out at the last minute.
4. Cook Large Portions and Use Your Leftovers
Cooking large meals can save you both time and money.
Leftovers can be used for lunches, in other recipes or frozen in single-portion sizes to be enjoyed later on
5. Don’t Shop When You’re Hungry
If you go to the grocery store hungry, you are more likely to stray from your grocery list and buy something on impulse.
6. Buy Whole Foods
For example, a block of cheese is cheaper than shredded cheese and canned beans are cheaper than refried ones.
7. Buy Generic Brands
All food manufacturers have to follow standards to provide safe food. The generic brands may be the same quality as other national brands, just less expensive.
8. Stop Buying Junk Food
Despite the fact that they offer very little nutrition and are packed with unhealthy ingredients, they are also very expensive.
9. Buy in Bulk
These are all staple foods that are relatively inexpensive and can be used in a variety of healthy meals.
You don’t have to break the bank to eat well especially during the tough times we are experiencing due to Covid-19.
