Here are some budget friendly tips you can follow on your next grocery run:
- Look for store coupons. Coupons are a perfect way to save money on products you already plan to buy.
- Consider store brands. Store named products tend to cost less than name brand competitors.
- Meal Prep. Meal Prep allows you to use what you need and freeze the rest in portion sized packaged for later.
- Don’t impulse buy at checkout. Candy and snack foods are commonly placed near the checkout to create temptations.
