Filipino Maid/Indonesian miad-6 Tips to Save Money on Grocery
Imagine destroying your budget plan because of unnecessary grocery items you’ve bought. Do you want to save money even without compromising the health and food of the family? You can check the following tips we came up to save money on groceries.
Plan before buying
This is a fun way of saving money. You can have bonding time with your family to plan what meals do you want to cook for the week ahead. Not only that you’ll have your cravings satisfied, but you can also a good time with your family and discuss about their new favorites. If possible, list down all of your ingredients and you may check your refrigerators and storage drawers for it. You’ll be surprised to see that some of them are already in the kitchen and you don’t need to include them on your to-buy-lists!
Don’t underestimate coupons and discount cards
We may think discount cards are just marketing strategies for malls but they are actually quite useful! Discount cards can save you when you’re out of money and you want to buy something. And as long as it doesn’t cost too much, you can buy groceries that come with coupons to save more on your next shopping.
Take advantage of sales
A wise consumer always marks the calendars for sales! Why do the shopping now if everything is up to 50% discount tomorrow in malls? Malls have calendars and usually sales happen on holidays and special days. If you’re currently indulging yourself in lesser costs of things, you can buy more than usual. The price would eventually come back to its peak tomorrow.
Brands don’t matter
There are items you choose because of their ‘high-quality’ brand despite its high price. Well, that’s not always true. Sometimes, prices only vary because of their packaging and advertisement. Always compare qualities especially the edible ones. Both products might just be the same in taste and texture but you overlooked the cheaper products. Weigh your options but don’t change your standards!
Carry cash and not credit cards
If you are in a tight budget, better carry cash and leave you cards at home. Bringing money more than how much you need will just tempt you to buy unnecessary things! Don’t touch the cards when in groceries to save more money. Who knows? You may still go home with excess money in your pocket.
Choose items on top and bottom shelves
These items are often bigger but cheaper and so not put on the eye level. Other marketing strategies place the more expensive things where shoppers easily find it and that is in the eye level. Before, grabbing the items you see first, scan the products above or at the bottom of the shelves.
