Make a Cash Budget

Start taking cash with you to the grocery store and make yourself a cash budget. Leave the credit and debit cards at home or in the car. This will help you limit impulse buying and stay focused on the important items on your grocery list.

Stop Buying so Much Food

This tip piggybacks off the one above. Americans waste a lot of food. Part of that is, again, impulse buying. You have to stick with a budget, make a list, and not deviate from it. Focus only on the food items you need for the week and avoid buying a lot of extra things you do not need.

Use Coupons

Using coupons is a great way to save money every time you go grocery shopping. Grocery chains have their own special coupons and you can get coupons online from the manufacturer and other websites. Some grocery chains also have double coupon days where the value of each coupon is doubled for extra savings.

Buy Generic

The big brands always cost more compared to the generic store brands. If you are only buying named brand food items, you’re losing money each trip. You can buy storebrand bottled water, soda, juice, canned vegetables, crackers, pasta, cheese, frozen items, and more.
