Preparation is the key to success. Why not apply that golden principle to grocery shopping?
Once you’ve mastered a few skills you will be able to greatly reduce your weekly grocery bill and still bring home healthy food in the process.
First, you must get a general sense of what items cost. I always try to look over the weekly flyers to get an idea of the baseline prices for each grocer. It also keeps me in tune with how prices are adjusting for seasonal changes. It might seem like common sense, but shop at the store with the best deals that week.
Also, some stores promote price matching and you are missing out if you are not taking advantage of this! You could fund a family vacation with the savings you recoup from price matching each week. It takes a little practice, but this extra step will save you a lot of money. I’m not ashamed to say I try to price match often. I’ve come up with a great system that works really well and keeps me organized. Perhaps I’ll detail it in another post!
Sadly, healthy food can be expensive and we need to be smart shoppers in order to feed nourishing food to ourselves and our families.
