- Since most of us buy virtually the same foods every week, a good way to know if prices change is to bring a receipt from a past shopping trip with you when you shop.
- A good time to stock up on items is when products are half price.
- Make sure you read the sale signs and match the product to the sign. Sometimes there is confusion about which product is on sale.
- The item on sale is not always the best price, so make sure to read the price per unit.
- Buying packaged produce is usually more expensive than buying it individually.
- Not everything in the store advertisements mailed out to you are on sale.
- It may be less expensive to purchase the sliced prepackaged meats and cheeses offered in the deli section of the store, check the prices before asking someone to freshly slice some.
- If something is nearing the expiration date, see if you can purchase it for a lower price.
- When large cuts of meat are on sale, you can ask someone in the meat department to cut them into more usable pieces for you.
- You can also have someone grind cuts of pork, chicken or meat when they are on sale.
Here are a few more ways to save when shopping for groceries. One of the best tips is to read the price per unit tag on the product shelf. This is the easiest way to compare product prices.
