Great tips and services for saving hundreds of dollars at the grocery store
One of the first things people discover when they start watching their budget closely, is the high percentage of their income going just for food. Grocery costs are very high these days, but it is one of those categories you have some control over, unlike many other fixed expenses. Therefore, the effort and attention is worth it.
There are various methods and tips to save a lot of money at the grocery store, and some people put a lot of time and effort into couponing, and they love it. Many others of us have tried that, but it just isn’t their thing. That’s okay, there are other ways, such as Emeals.com which is a paid service to plan meals matched to local sales. Some people buy all of their groceries once a month and it saves them a lot of money. We often go to discount stores like Aldis. Do you still want to do couponing but don’t have the time it takes? If so, check out the paid online service The Grocery Game that does a lot of the leg work for you.
The Ohio State University is helping people out with this too, with classes and training about meal planning, cooking and other resources; check out Simple Suppers.
