Money-Saving Tips: Grocery Shopping

  • Use coupons. Be careful to use coupons only for items you will truly use.
  • Shop at discount stores like 99¢ Only stores and Big Lots! for single use items like paper-plates, napkins and cups.
  • Buy non-perishable items like soap and detergent in bulk.
  • Get a membership at Warehouse stores like Costco and Sam's club. Ask your neighbor or a friend to share the membership with you.
  • Buy items that are on sale (but only items that you will truly use).
  • Eat a meal or snack before you go grocery shopping. If you go to the store hungry, you are more likely to overspend and buy things you don't need (or want).
  • If you have children, try not to take them to the grocery store. Children will ask (and may beg) for several items through your shopping trip.
  • Make a grocery list before you leave your home. Check your cabinets to see what you have so you won't buy something you already have.
  • Save big by buying items that you have coupons for that are also on sale.
  • Buy generic brands (especially for items like sugar, salt and flour which usually taste the same no matter what brand you buy).
  • Ask for a rain check if the store is out of a sale priced item.
  • Check to see if your grocery store has a special program. Some grocery stores have 'club cards' and discounts for people who are older than 65 years of age.
  • Look at items that are placed below eye level. Bargain priced items are often shelved below eye level and out of your immediate view.
  • Do not buy precut produce. Precut produce, such as salads in a bag, and prepared melons are much more costly than the whole vegetables or fruits.
