Frugal Friday: Save Money Grocery Shopping

Shop for produce at a local farm stand.
Always grocery shop with a list.
Take advantage of sales on items that you would normally buy.
Only shop once a month.
Stockpile staples when prices are low.
Keep track of prices by unit cost.
Buy generic items.
Plan meals according to what is on sale that week.
Take advantage of rainchecks if the store doesn’t have a sale item that you need.
Buy enough of a sale item to last 12 weeks. That’s about how long sales take to cycle.
Shop at discount marts: Grocery outlet, The Dollar Store, etc.
Take advantage of stores that double coupons.
Watch out for deals on things that your friends need, and have them do the same for you.
