10 Ways to Save Money at the Grocers



Making your money go further at the grocery store doesn't have to mean traveling to multiple stores or spending hours skimming the coupon circulars. Take a look at 10 tips on how to shop smarter at the supermarket. 

  • Don't Overbuy - Whether you're cooking for a big group or just for you, overbuying is all too easy when we're at the store. Before you head to the supermarket checkout, ask yourself if you are buying too much if you estimate the leftovers will last more than a few days, the answer may be a conclusive "yes."
  • Stock Up on Sales - For those of you that have kitchen space to spare, stocking up on non-perishables and frozen or freezable items when they are on sale can be a great way to save on groceries. 

  • Don't Be a Deer-in-Headlights - Next time you're food shopping, compare prices of the items at chest level and the items on the upper and lower shelves. Most stores stock the most expensive items where they're easy to grab and go. A simple scan up and down could knock some serious dollars off your total. 

  • Get Grocery Coupons Online - New online tools like  TheGroceryGame.com and AOL Shortcuts are perfect for busy people that want to save money.  

  • Share Bulk Items With a Friend - It especially makes sense to buy dry goods in bulk, but always remember to check unit prices to ensure the bigger items actually cost less. For things with expiration dates, consider splitting the cost with a friend. 

  • Inspire a Love For Leftovers - If there's someone in your family who is resistant to leftovers, try making some dishes that actually taste better the day after they're made. 

  • Give Store Brands a Go - Instead of simply grabbing your go-to brands, consider narrowing the price comparison process to your favorite brand and its store brand equivalent. When you've discovered the store brand to be lower in price, take it home for a taste test!

  • Be Selective About Coupons - Don't clip coupons for unneeded items, because you'll likely spend more money.

  • Skip the Nongrocery Items - Health and beauty products tend to be cheaper at mass-market retailers, like Target, or drug stores.

  • Check Your Receipt For Errors - Keep your eye on the scanner for errors as your items are priced one by one. It's much easier than trying to prove that you've been charged for two of an item when you only walked out with one.
