hey guys today I'm going to share with you some tricks to save money at the grocery store I know all of you love my budget haul videos so I thought that you would appreciate knowing my secrets to saving money at the grocery store let's start with number one eat in season right now it's summertime and berries nectarines grape tomatoes yummy vegetables and fruits are in season right now and for that reason they are cheaper at the grocery store I also find that they taste better when you're actually eating them when their season appropriate number two coupons I'm not really into clipping out my own coupons but you do have the option to go onto coupons calm red plum calm there's a few other websites where you can actually go on and print out coupons for foods that you are already buying at the grocery store you can also go on to your favorite brands Facebook pages and sometimes they have coupons for you to print out there too 3 make a list duh but don't just make a list meal prep and create a menu if you do this you're going to know how much you need of each item so that when you go to the store you can get enough so that you don't have to do midweek trips that often include impulse buys so create a list create a meal plan and get after it number 4 don't shop hungry if you're like me and you shop hunger you buy everything the store everything looks good so before you go to the store eat a meal have a nice lunch have a nice breakfast and then go shopping before dinner there's always a million people there especially on Monday and Tuesday's and you end up buying way more than you need so eat a meal before you go don't shop hungry number five go generic some of my favorite foods to buy like Oh cereals frozen vegetables by buying the generic version you're really not sacrificing any taste or quality you're just going to save money so don't be afraid to buy generic number six is something I do I shop around I know what stores have the best prices so when I need to do some staple shopping I'll go to Aldi because I know that they are the cheapest there four other things I like to go to Trader Joe's for some of my sauces in different condiments and frozen vegetables and then there's hopefully taupe it's actually has some great deals on things but also same with Target Sean's stop and shop we all have different grocery stores and I liked shop around to get the best deals possible which brings me to number seven use your iPhone when you go shopping I love this new app called grocery pal you enter in your zip code and then it lets you know what the sales are at the stores near you so if you know you love to eat Greek yogurt you can go and see what store has Greek yogurt on sale that week it also will let you know if there are $1 great tomatoes when Aldi has this week near me $1 for grape tomatoes I wouldn't have known that if I hadn't downloaded the grocery pal app but you guys can download it it's free and you guys can save some money by checking in to see where some of your favorite products are being sold at a discount number eight buy in bulk especially when things are on sale now if you're worried about them going bad preserve them using either canning freezing or even drying if you have a dehydrator I love buying things in bulk especially meat when they're on sale because you can get them from cheaper prices and then I just put them in the freezer so each week when I figure out what I'm having I can take them out so that they saw number 9 buy your meats with the bone in or if you're buying seafood with the shell or bones still in if you buy chicken bone in it is way cheaper and it actually does taste better you have to roast it a little bit longer but just remember to take the skin off to remove some that excess fat you don't need if I were to buy shrimp at the grocery store without the shell it would cost me more money so take a few extra minutes yourself to buy it with the shell on and just do it yourself to save some money number 10 go vegetarian for some of the meals that you eat during the week beans are extremely affordable and so by factoring in a few vegetarian meals each week you are going to end up saving yourself some money number 11 avoid buying prepackaged foods or pre sliced produce grocery stores are charging you major dollars to do some of the dirty work that really doesn't take that much time so avoid buying the prepared and pre place number 12 pick a credit card that actually rewards you for shopping at the grocery store I have one that gives me points depending on how much I shop at the grocery store that month I then get to use those points to redeem for travel credits on my credit card statement so if I fly to California for work I can then use some of my grocery points to reduce that cost between like 100 and 200 dollars every credit card has a different rate as a different point system so shop around and pick the best one for you and the last one is to take bigger trips when you go to the grocery store when you go up to the register you might have a little sticker shock like oh my gosh I can't believe how much money I spent but I kind of mentioned this earlier by reducing the amount of times you go to a grocery store each week you're going to reduce the amount of impulse buys that you make at the store each time I go I'm guilty of this I at least five two or three things that I really didn't need but either I see them on sale or they look good or I'm in the mood and then I just end up spending more money than I needed to so by doing bigger grocery shopping trips each time you're going to reduce the amount of visits that you make and then reduce the amount of impulse buys and overall money that you have hopefully you enjoyed my tricks to save yourself some money at the grocery store if you're curious what a thirty dollar grocery haul looks like for meals for the entire week stay tuned to click on my thirty dollar grocery haul for the

    Ibotta is a new Android and iPhone app that allows you to earn money by purchasing participating items. You can earn this money in addition to using manufacturer and store coupons. And the best part: You don't even need your phone while you are shopping!! All the work is done once you get home! Just unlock the rebates, scan Item and then receipt using the app and you get your cash back credited in the app.

    also, plan your meals around the veggies you have left at home. so often people end up throwing veggies and fruit out and that is just money in the garbage.

    I love grocery shopping, its my highlight of the week. I like Krogers, and I worked for them twice. Beginning of the month is the worst because of food stamps and pay day. Also Sunday is the worst because that's when the most people go. As an employee I learned everybody had to work on Sunday

    I'm a little confused about buying meat with the bone. I know that the price per kilo goes down, but not all of what we're buying is still edible – we still have to pay for the mass of the bone. Do you still recommend buying this way? Thanks x

    I work in a food store. My wallet hate me. I buy something small everyday instead of doing a big shopping on mondays. Go to get better at that.

    Love these tips!  I normally only buy my meats when they're on sale, and I plan my menus around what I have on hand.  When they are on sale, I take an afternoon and just do a lot of prep with ziploc bags.  For instance, with chicken, I trim any excess fat from the chicken breasts, butterfly them, and pound them out thinly and put two breasts worth of chicken in every freezer bag, and I lay them out flat in the freezer so that they can stack on top of each other.  Thawing is a lot easier when you only have to take out what you need, and it thaws in the fridge much more quickly when it's all in a flat layer.

    there seems to never be coupons for whole organic foods but what you said about in season is key.

    The only one I am not necessarily on board with is the bone-in meats. Bone in means I pay for bones I have no use for which are heavy. So I would rather pay an extra $.30 for the connivence of not having to cook longer. Also I don't have to pay for the fat that I might be tempted to eat.

    I've recently been stacking manufacturing coupons with store coupons and saving a lot! I haven't had as much luck with grocery coupons (still looking), but I've saved a lot on other necessities like laundry detergent, paper towels, makeup removers, etc. These are some awesome tips! Thanks for the help! 🙂

    love these tips! especially #10 🙂 such a myth that eating vegan/vegetarian is expensive. Veg friendly foods are some of the cheapest you can find: grains, beans, lentils, pasta, tofu, etc…! Oh and eat lots of bananas… bananas are so cheap! 🙂
