Save on Food

Save hundreds of dollars a year by shopping at lower-priced food stores like Aldi. Convenience stores will more than often charge the highest price than grocery stores.

You will also spend less on food if you make a list when going shopping, take advantage of sales, and purchase basic ingredients such as flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt - rather than buying pre-packaged food or ready to make products.

Coupons can help you save an exponential amount of money if use wisely. Try to use your coupons when the items are on sale,

If you can skip on the brand name foods and go with the generic, they may not taste like the brand names but you sure will save a good amount by buying the generic kind.

Try to buy in bulk. As you may notice the bigger the package the cheaper the individual unit costs, Sams' Club and Costco's are a couple places that sell in bulk.

Grow your own vegetables and fruit. If you have a garden on the side of the house or in the backyard try growing your own produce, not only will it save you money but you won't have to worry about what chemicals you need to wash off.
