Most people are very interested in lowering their typical expenses. One simple way to do just that is to consider ways to lower your regular grocery expenses. Giving just a little extra thought to this ahead of your shopping trip can save you a lot of money.
First, think about what you’re buying. Is it possible to buy store brand or generic brand items instead of premium versions of the same product? Could your family do just as well with more basic items that last longer but need to be prepared instead of pre-packaged or quickly-expiring foods?
Then, you might think about where you buy. Is there a discount chain nearby that you might be able to shop at? Is it possible to buy groceries at a bulk or wholesale distributor, and split the purchase with another family, if needed? Is there another store that’s running a sale on the specific items that you need?
