Tips for Cutting The Grocery Bill

Reader Tips: 7 Realistic Ways to Cut Your Grocery Bill

SavvySugar reader Findingmyway recently asked for realistic tips for cutting her grocery bill in our How Do You Save? group and fellow shoppers offered up some standout advice. Here are seven of my favorites from the many smart suggestions:

  1. Try researching food co-ops in your area. — benheld
  2. Farmers markets are great. Buy in season and only what you need. — Anonymous
  3. Go vegetarian a couple of times a week if you don't already. Meat can tend to cost the most at the store. It's a double-whammy of cheaper and healthier. — Deidre
  4. Buy in bulk, especially beans, rice and pasta. Whole Foods' bulk bin is pretty cheap and you can base most meals around one of those three items. — beram1220
  5. I think one of the best things my husband and I started doing was actually planning what we were going to eat for dinner and lunch for the week. We pick up the basics we need for the week plus ingredients for whatever we are going to make! — Lauren
  6. Ethnic markets have great prices on produce. — Anonymous
  7. What really saved me grocery money was using the store ads to plan my weekly menu (or to be honest - twice weekly) and sticking to my list. — mek123
