Tips To Save Money At The Supermarket

Are you interested in saving money off your grocery bills? If so, then a few "Smart Shopper" tips are all you need to start saving hundreds off your grocery bills!

However you must make a few changes in the manner you shop for groceries. If you are willing to do so, just follow these shopping tips and you'll be well on your way to saving a pocketful.

Let's Begin
~~~~~~~~

Can you believe that impulse buying accounts for 20%-50% of our total grocery bill every time we shop! If you add up all these unnecessary items you buy every month, you can imagine how much you could save.

First, BEFORE you go shopping, . . . Take the time to list EXACTLY what you need!

Before you go to the supermarket, make a list of everything you need to buy. This really helps cut down on impulse buying. You know, the kind of buying we do when we pass by the candy isle, and throw a couple bars in our basket!

Now when you are shopping, tell yourself: "Just get what's on the LIST!" Period. End of story. No impulse buying. No extra spending!

Train yourself to live by this rule.

When you have a list to go by, it helps keep you from getting distracted by all those "goodies" lining the aisles. You can then concentrate on getting just what's ON THE LIST!

SECONDLY . . . Go shopping for your groceries on a FULL stomach!

Sound funny? Well it's a proven fact! When we shop for our 'food' on a full stomach, we are far less likely to purchase items we don't need or want.

When we're "full", we do not get those cravings when walking by the cookie shelf, or ice-cream aisle.

Try it the next time you go to the supermarket. Compare the receipts from your previous grocery trip. You'll see a difference!

DON'T FORGET . . . When you're able to buy a larger quantity at discounted prices - JUMP ON IT!

Get in the habit of utilizing all the wonderful kitchen storage facilities that we all have! Our cupboards and freezers were made for a purpose, so put them to use!

Get yourself some good containers (tupperware) of various sizes and develop a system. You'll find that you can buy meat and poultry in larger quantities for much cheaper than usual.

Why not divide the bigger portion up into smaller quantities, and store them in your tightly sealed containers and freeze until needed? You can do the same with bread, cereal, cheeses, lunch meat, and practically anything else! Use your imagination!

CONCLUSION

If you are only able to take one idea from this article, you will save money every month. Take the time to reflect on your style of shopping. You might find that you spend a little too much on unnecessary items.

Better yet, use this as an opportunity to start that "diet" that everyone post-pones for some reason or another.

Now that you have your "LIST" and are a smarter, wiser shopper, you can eliminate all those fat, calorie packed items! Why not? Not only will you be saving money, but you'll be getting healthier at the same time.

Killing two birds with one stone . . . metaphorically speaking :-)
