10 Tips To Help You Save On Your Groceries

It’s really a challenging job to go grocery shopping if your budget is tight. “To buy or not to buy” is the only thing that goes in your head more than anything else! Sometimes people end up spending a really large amount on groceries than they should and that disturbs their entire budget for the month. But compromising on food is something that none of us want to do,

Here Are 10 Tips To Help You Save On Your Groceries

  1. Budgeting Is Everything!


For everything that you do, even for groceries, setting up a budget is the 1stand the most essential step. If you have a budget set for all your expenses, you’ll be on the safer side. When planning to buy groceries, start off with setting up a budget for your groceries. This will help you in making the list, prioritizing and will save you from spending on unnecessary things.

  1. List It All


The next thing after setting up a budget is to make a list of all the things that you need according to your budget. Prioritize things as per your necessity and budget. Milk, veggies, eggs, bread, fruits, sugar, etc. are the most important ones and need to be given priority, other snack items can be cut down or can be bought in lesser quantities. STICK to the list. Be determined to spend on the essential ones first and then go to the extra ones.

  1. Understand Your Needs


You don’t need everything that’s on SALE! Don’t follow “I’ll buy it coz it’s on SALE” rule. Out of the 10 things that are on sale, you probably eat/need 5-6 of them, so don’t start buying everything that’s available for a lesser amount. Buy things only if you or your family eat/need them. If you see non-perishable items like flour, sugar, pasta, oil etc. on sale then its always a good idea to buy those in bulk as these do come under the priorities category of your list and can be stored for a longer time. But buy the perishable ones as per the required quantity. Choose wisely.

  1. Meal Planning


Plan your meals for the week in advance as this will help you shop better. When you’ll know what you’ll cook and what all ingredients you’ll need, then you can choose better. This will reduce the confusion and will save you from buying anything that won’t be put to use. Hence, nothing gets wasted.

  1. Store Brands Can Help


People often overlook the in-store brand products and go for the name brand that makes their bill go up! Many times, the in-store and name brand products are similar but just have different labels. This can help you save more as most of the times its just the brand’s goodwill that you are paying for, otherwise the ingredients are mostly similar in name brands and in-store brands.

  1. The Coupon Way


Make use of those grocery store coupons and ads that you see in the weekly. Many stores provide discounts, reward point, and other exciting offers. Sign up for store’s emails/loyalty cards etc. and make the most of their coupons and offers.

  1. No Off Season Items


Try to avoid offseason products like veggies and fruits as the shipping costs are added to their original price and this makes them costly. Buy the in-season items and avoid paying extra.

  1. Less Of Packaged Food


Packaged foods are generally costlier than the fresh ones. Avoid buying packaged food and go for the fresh ones. Buying packaged food means that you are just paying extra for the marinating and storage process. You can very well marinate your meat and store food on your own.

  1. Compare


Keep a track of prices of products in different stores. Sometimes prices vary from store to store, what may be costly in one store can be on sale in the other store or can be priced at a lesser rate. Also, sometimes you might get more quantity of a product at a store at a lesser rate or with some offer than a store that is selling it at a higher rate with less/equal quantity.

  1. Go Solo


Try not to bring your kids as they tend to get distracted with a lot of stuff in the store and it’s really hard to say no to them or to convince them on not buying something. When you go grocery shopping with your kids, you definitely end up buying more things than you planned.

6 Tips To Save On School Supplies

May is almost coming to an end and its time for the kids to get ready for school with their backpacks on! A new class, new subjects, new teachers and when everything else is new, the kids will definitely want to have new school supplies as well. School supplies are the only things that get them excited about going to school but you cant let their excitement make you go out of budget! So here are 6 tips to help you save on school supplies:

  1. Grab It First

Grab soonIf you are planning to buy the school supplies on the very last day on maybe say 2-3 days before the school reopens, then you are highly mistaken! This will make you pay extra bucks for any item that you purchase as school supplies tend to be in high demand and so the prices get hiked. Purchase them during off-season sales when the demand is low so that you get them at nominal rates.

  1. The More The Better

more the betterWhatever you buy, buy in bulk. If you want to buy pens, then instead of buying few of them and thinking of buying them again later when needed, buy it all together in bulk during off-season sales as the prices are low and you are sorted for the year. Do the same with other necessary stationery as well. Also, some stores offer great discounts when buying in bulk.

  1. Reuse The Old Stuff

ReuseLook back in your closets and drawers and you’ll definitely find some old stuff that you bought with complete intentions of using it but then you just forgot about them! Reuse those old empty notebooks, crayons, pencils etc. and save some bucks!

  1. Pass It On
