How Can I Save Money At The Grocery Store?
From the "how can I save money at the grocery store?" file, I found a list of the 20 best ways to save money (and using coupons is NOT #1!).
I was at NuNu's grocery store in Youngsville the other night, and I found this grocery list in the basket that I was pushing:
Obviously, they were planning a 'boil' (probably crawfish, but what do I know??), but did they realize that they may have been saving money just by utilizing a list?
According to an article I read on the Curbly.com website, making a list is #20 on the list of ways to save money at the grocery store.
There are several ideas that I had heard of before (eat before you shop was #19; utilize coupons was #5 on the list) and a few that I had NOT heard!! For instance, #3 was know what you already have at home, so you don't "double up" on that item!! (I have 4 bottles of mustard in the pantry, and I use mustard about once a year.....waste much? HA!) #17 was "Grate Your Own Food", because, obviously, grated carrots and cheeses cost more than whole.
Anyhoot, you'll probably find one or two on this list that can help you save a buck or two on your next trip to your local grocer!
And now, something you probably won't see in South Louisiana:
