I have tried and want to show you 13 successful ways to slash your grocery bill in half in no time!
Groceries are one of the categories in your budget that will spend a big chunk of your income. Saving on groceries can be challenging as you are first starting, but it is not a rocket science thing. Adopting these very simple strategies will save you TONS in no time. It is really easy to buy more than you need if you do not keep track of it. Once you learn how to control your grocery spending, it becomes quite organic and easier to manage.
There are different ways that you can save on groceries. But I’ll be covering the ones that have been highly effective for my family.
It is common to go over budget on groceries especially if you do not prepare yourself beforehand. Everybody does it, and I did it COUNTLESS times, until my husband and I committed fully to finding ways and strategies that would help us save on food effectively without much HASSLE and without eating poorly.
Having a grocery budget is especially important to control your spending, avoid food waste and keep yourself more organized. NOBODY wants to see their money going straight to the trash just because you overbought items that you didn’t use. Doesn’t it feel bad!
Just so you have an idea, we used to spend anything from $780 to $1,367 a MONTH on groceries (including restaurants and take outs) for ONLY TWO PEOPLE! For what? We had no idea of such a thing until we started budgeting.
