8 Ways to Save More Money On Groceries

    I am always looking for ways to save money on groceries.  Here are some of the best tips I have found to help my family get more bang for the buck.  These are tried and true tips that I have done for years.

1. Make a Meal Plan Each Week
The Best way to save on groceries is to make a meal plan and stick to it, You save money for 2 reasons.  You use groceries you already have in the freezer and pantry, and you save emergency trips to the grocery store.
2.Shop Early In The Morning for Discount Meats
First thing in the morning most stores are marking meat prices down to move them. My sister in law once asked me how I could afford Corned Beef brisket.  She couldn’t believe the mark down.  I got a 17.00 brisket for 7.00.  Over and over I checked the cases where they were sold and found them marked down.  She is also doing this now.
         3. Shop with a List                                               
      I use the color note app for smartphones.  I love it for groceries and any list I need to keep.  I have about 20 lists on this app. They are always with me everywhere I go...get my drift?.
         4. Use a White Erase Board to List  
I use a white board to list everything I run out of during the day. This system works so well my family uses it too.  I later add the items to my colornote app.
          5. Inventory Pantry and Freezer
 Know what you have in your pantry and freezer at all times, even if you have to do an inventory sheet.  Out of date items are one of the biggest waste of money.  It is so satisfying to make a meal from items that are about to expire and have your family rave about how good it is.  Happened to me this week.
 6.   Make lists from Grocery Ads  
Make your Grocery lists from weekly sales paper or go online to see what is on sale.  Bulk up on sale items.  Check dates and use before they expire.
 7. Cut Your own Meat
Buy meat such as roast  when it is on sale and make your own beef stew.  Big savings.  It is worth asking your butcher if he will cut roasts.  Most of the time they won’t charge extra.
8. Use Walmart Smartphone App
This is fairly new to me but it saves a lot of money.  All you do is scan the square barcode on your receipt and Wal Mart will compare it to prices from competitors.  If they find another store with lower prices, they will give you the difference.  

Please leave me a comment and let me know how you save money on groceries.
