How To Save Money on Food Expenses
Time to talk about food expenses! Did you know that in the U.S., we spend around $8,169 a year on food? If that figure worries you, don’t worry, there are ways to cut down costs!
On average, Americans spend $386.91 on groceries per month.
You may think that buying less will save you money. But one surefire way to actually save is to buy in bulk. Fill up your pantry and kitchen with careful planning. Check for deals and sales online before making a list. That way, you’ll know if it’s more affordable to buy a product in bulk this week compared to next week.
Also, you should always compare prices between shops. It may be more convenient to drive down to your local Walmart, but if you find the same item for cheaper just 5 minutes further, those extra 5 minutes in traffic may be worth the cost.
Bonus tip: don’t shop at eye level. That’s where you’ll find the most expensive, brand-name products. Look up and down for similar products that are significantly cheaper without being much different in terms of taste. Store-brand items are also more affordable and are oftentimes just as good if not better than their brand-name counterparts.
Combine these tips with coupons, cash-back sites, and discounts from store apps to maximize your grocery shopping spree.
