Save Money on Groceries

Let's face it, food is one of those expensive you'll never get rid of. However, you can lighten the burden of your grocery bill by following these great tip! Remember, every dollar you save at the store is more money for treating yourself to a meal out.

1. Read the ads - If you live near more than one food store (and most of us do) check the ads for all of them. Then, split your list between 2 or 3 with the best sales. You should also take a look at ads for retail stores like Target and CVS. They often have good deals on shelf-stable goods like cereal and crackers.

2. Clip those coupons - Even if you don't get them in the mail, you can still take advantage of coupons. Visit some of the online sites offering printable discounts. Some of my favorites are SmartSource and

3. Buy frozen produce - Wait until your favorite frozen fruits and veggies go on sale. Then, stock up. They'll stay good longer (and usually cost less) than the fresh stuff.

4. Buy in bulk - You can save a bundle each year by joining a wholesale club like BJs or Costco. Stock up on the stuff you eat a lot (as long as it's not perishable) and save some dough in the process.

5. Shop online - Sites like Amazon that offer groceries can really save you money during sales. Save more by looking for free shipping options (Amazon offers this on certain products).
