Saving money while doing the groceries for the family might be challenging but it is possible according to National Debt Relief. The article titled ‘How To Save Money On Groceries Family Style” released November 13, 2017, aims to help consumers save money while buying food for their family.
The article starts off by explaining that it is tough for heads of households to put together a healthy meal for their family. It is quite expensive. There are also some consumers spending about a quarter of their annual income just on groceries. However, the article points out that this can be a surprising source of savings for consumers.
The article shares that consumers need to make a full inventory of their kitchen at least once a month. This will help people prevent waste on their food supply. Consumers can look at their kitchen, pantry, freezer, and refrigerator to get a sense of what they have and what they don’t have. This helps them prevent buying items they already have.
One thing the article explains is that consumers are paying a premium for pre-prepared food. This is because they are priced higher for costs associated with added labor, packaging, and processes. This includes pre-sliced meats to pre-shredded cheese to pre-cut pineapple - consumers can save money in their grocery cost if they slice the item themselves at home.
Couponing is a great strategy but the article explains how consumers can improve on it. This is because most of them would immediately use their coupons the next time they go out to the store to buy. The article shares that if consumers hold on to their coupons until the store is running a sale on the item, they will be able to combine in-store discounts with coupons for maximum savings.
