I know many of you do too. After all, you doesn’t want to save money? Yes, it can get a little overwhelming clipping coupons. Yes, it can get confusing trying to remember which apps saves you what money that week. You have better things to do with your time then trying to remember where the sales are.
Or do you?
Look, we can save a bundle and contribute to the household by watching how much we spend at the grocery store. If you are a stay at home mom, consider it part of your job. And yes, it may take a couple of hours a week to clip those coupons or find the best deals. That’s okay! Work it into your schedule. If you can save $50, you just earned $25/hour. Think of it that way.
Favorite Ways To Save Money Grocery Shopping
I recently started using Checkout 51 and love it! It was one of those things I knew I needed to try, but couldn’t get up the excitement to actually try it. I knew it would take time and with four children, extra time is not overly abundant. For starters, I was wrong. Like, really, really wrong. It takes almost no time. I glance at the offers, I shop, then when I get home, I take a picture of my receipt. Within an hour, my account is credited. Really, simple as that.
The skinny? They list offers such as $.50 for buying tomatoes. You prove you bought tomatoes, they give you $.50. Simple as that. It is free to join and free to use. You can sign up here if you are interest in checking it out.
Another thing I always do, as pictured above, is check out the clearance aisle. Today (not pictured), I happened to be going by the Walmart clearance aisle and saw Mott’s applesauce pouches for $1.00. Caleb calls them “yummy things”. I bought four boxes for the price of 2 1/2!
Pictured above is the clearance items I got last week at Kroger. They must have been clearing out their baking items from Christmas and I scored big time.
Flour: $.49 a bag
Powdered Sugar: $.50 a bag
Baking Chocolate: $.75
Baking Cocoa: $.49
Dried Cherries, Cranberries and Blueberries: $.50
Wesson Oil: $.99
Special K: $.99
Skinny Pop: $.99
And not pictured were some 1/4 pound hamburger patties for $2.99 and frozen nuggets with jalapeno for $1.30. All together I saved over $40.
I didn’t have to do anything except walk by the clearance aisle. It very little extra time.
All in all, always, always check find ways to save money at the store. Once you get in a groove, it is very easy to save a dollar!
