1. Buy Some Store Brands
2. Grocery Delivery
3. Use A Weekly Meal Plan
4. ‘One More Day’
How does this affect grocery shopping and money spent? I tell myself, “Just wait one more day…” before going to the store. And I only go or place my online order when we’re out of a lot of stuff. This helps eliminate food waste, and most months, I only do three shopping trips instead of four because I keep waiting one more day.
It is terrible for the environment and is a huge chunk of money. I’ve overcome this by using this technique. My garbage pick-up day is Tuesday. So, every Monday evening, I go through our fridge and pantry and get rid of the old food.
6. Take Advantage of Price Matching Promises
Another strategy to save money at the supermarket is to use purchase price matching if you are shopping somewhere like Walmart. Many large food retailers will match competitor prices to get your business, saving you even more cash.
