The Incredible Shrinking Grocery Bill

Save money on groceries.

Looking at your bank account each month you may wonder, “Where does it all go?” The cost of living increases each year, but there’s a good chance your bank account doesn’t. One cost that’s going up and up and up is the price you pay for food. What happened to the days when a loaf of bread cost 50 cents and a gallon of milk cost a couple bucks? A little something called inflation. Thanks to inflation and some other factors, food costs have practically doubled over the past 20 years!

Don’t lose heart just yet! Use these practical tips to save on food each month without spending hours clipping coupons.

Stick to a List

Whether you shop for groceries once a week or once a month, make a list of what you need. Plan your meals ahead of time, inspect your pantry for what you already have, then make a list of what you still need for each meal.
Keep in mind that making a list is only half the trick. Once you get to the store, you’ve got to stick to your list. A list takes the guesswork out of what you need to buy. It also makes you less likely to buy on impulse the things you don’t need—that bag of chips, candy bar, and pint of ice cream.

If you need help planning meals in advance or have special dietary needs, there are websites dedicated to planning meals and creating a shopping list. Try the Menu Planner on Allrecipes.com.

Paper Not Plastic

Take advice from financial experts and make a budget. Know how much you can spend on food each month. Then use cash for your purchases. Instead of paying with plastic (credit cards), pay with cash. Research has shown that people who pay with cash spend 12 to 18 percent less on groceries than those who use credit cards. So take your budgeted amount of cash to the grocery store with you and you’ll have no choice but to stick with it and save money in the process!

Go Generic

Another way to save money on food is to buy the store brand. For the most part, the store brand taste just as good as their name-brand counterparts. Occasionally, you’ll even find that some of them taste better than the pricier options. As a wallet-saving perk, you’ll be able to save as much as 20 percent on your food bill.

Shop Around

It may not be as convenient, but shopping at more than one store makes it possible to save shoppers as much as 15 percent on your groceries. Compare prices at two or three grocery stores and see which one offers the best deals on the foods you regularly buy. Also, don’t be afraid to shop grocery discount stores. You may not be able to get everything on your list at one store, but if you have the time, it’s worth it. Shopping at more than one store won’t save time, but it’ll save money. Once you figure out where to go for what items, the extra time it takes will be negligible.

Do It Yourself

If you prefer convenience over price, this money saving tip isn’t for you. Buying pre-made food or foods in small packages may save you time when you’re packing the kids’ lunches, but it won’t save you money. It is definitely cheaper to buy food in large packages and then divvy it up yourself. Pre-packaged snacks can cost up to three times as much as the normal package. And it’s not just the snacks. Salad mixes, sliced fruits, spice mixes all cost more than doing it yourself.
