Grocery Shopping Tips

Grocery shopping is one of our weekend activities that my children love the most. Aside from picking their own list, they also have the chance to discover themselves the fun of doing it. A big chunk of my budget goes off to groceries. Before, I usually missed tracking my budget and find myself at the check-out counter with only few cents left in my wallet. Now I know how to budget wisely. Here are a few tips I want to share on how to save while grocery shopping and be a smart shopper with bigger savings.

Always check the package items or products being promoted at a lower price.
Buy in bulks. You will always save a lot of money if you buy in big volume.
Buy a month supply if possible. You'll save a lot on gas too.
Compare the price. Even less known products have the same quality as branded and signature items.
Check the supermarket that sells a bigger discount and also provides a warehouse price.
Do grocery shopping with your stomach full so you won't crave for whatever you smell on something good to eat. This will save you a lot of money from dining.
Check your items when being scanned. Error sometimes occur.
Check the expiration date. Going back to the grocery to return expired items will cost you a lot.
