penny pinching for groceries

Save money on fruits and vegetables in the off season or grow your own fruits and vegetables.

Sell your own fruits and vegetables. Seeds cost pennies on the dollar.

Eat meals at home vs. eating out. Fast food is unhealthy and expensive. Keep your cupboards stocked with groceries so you won't be tempted to dine out.

Go shopping on a full stomach, so you won't be tempted to buy junk food.

Buy the majority of your meat, poultry, fish and eggs at a meat market.

Buy in bulk at warehouse clubs, such as Costco, Sam's Club or BJ's Wholesale Club especially if you have a large family. I've noticed they don't have the cheapest prices per se but the quality of food is usually a good bargain.

Make your own bread and ice cream.

Pack your own lunch before you go to work.

Compare unit prices. Grocery items usually have two prices below them. One is the price the supermarket charges and the second is the unit price. The unit price is how much a customer pays per unit, e.g., pounds, ounces, per 100 count. The unit price is usually cheaper.

Figure out cost per serving. A yogurt cup might be cheaper then Frosted Flakes, but how many bowls of cereal will you get?

Make 2 lists. Write down necessities for the month that you are out of, e.g., eggs, milk, bread. The second list will comprise of sale items for that week or month that you will buy in bulk.
