Grocery Savings

Saturday, April 18, 2009

1) I mostly buy in bulk with non perishable items. Costco has been great sending out monthly coupons. So I usually buy the paper products, pasta, cans, and meat there and divide out. This keeps me from making frequent trips to the store, which in turn keeps me from impulse buying.
2)When I do have to go to the store for something I always make a list, check the ads, and make sure I have a coupons. This helps to stick to a budget. My co-workers and I have started a coupon club where we all bring in coupons that we don't want and share them with the community. That helps with building up the coupon collection.
3) This last item I'm still working on. However, I have found that preplanning the weeks meals helps to cut down on impulse buying and it also cuts down on buying items that will eventually waste because it doesn't go with anything.
