Get out your grocery flyers and open those cabinets! Make your grocery list by matching up whats on sale and what you need. Buy enough to hold you over to the next sale (usually about 6 weeks).
Create your weekly menu so you can save time! Prepare meals in advance
so you can relax when you get home!
Groceries can eat up a large portion of your budget, but they are the
easiest expense to cut! All you need is a small notebook and your neighborhood
grocery store flyers. In your grocery notebook you will keep track of
the lowest price you have paid for each grocery item. Just keep that first
receipt to get started, when you get home write down the items you bought
in categories and the price you paid. Do it in pencil so you can write
a lower price when you find one! Then each week you will check all of
the grocery flyers looking for that price or a better price. Grocery stores
get you to come in by posting loss leaders in their flyers.
They expect you to come in and spend money on other products, but you
can beat them at their game by going to several stores and only buying
what is on sale! Once you start doing this you will see sale cycles and
youll know how much to buy to have enough to last until the next
