Meal planning is a great way to save money on groceries. Use a printable meal planning template that has a grocery list and plan your meals for the week. You can even plan ahead and make some meals to add to your freezer for a later week.
I put this at the top of the list because this is where you can get into a lot of trouble at the grocery store. You are more likely to make impulse purchases if you are hungry at the store.
Supermarkets like Walmart offer a price matching program where they will match any sales going on at other grocery stores. This is a great way to save some money while you shop for the week.
Looking at online flyers or checking out what is on sale in the store will save you money, and don’t hesitate to swap items. For example, you may have apples on your list, but the pears are 50 cents cheaper.
