I save money on groceries by doing a combination of things. I inventory what I have in the pantry, fridge, and freezer and plan meals for the week/month around what is available to us. Then I make a list of what we need to round out those meals or to make recipes I want to make that week. I also use coupons and check flyers for sale items of our common foods/needs. I don't usually shop every week. I find that we have been able to live off of what we already have in the house. I also find that when I do shop I don't always have to buy everything so stocking up on items within my budget is very easy.
