With school out for the summer, you may find your kids cleaning out the pantry and fridge faster than you can fill it. Fortunately, with pointers to help you save time, and hacks to help you save money, ABC Insurance Agencies is here to help you save in so many ways! Cut your grocery expenses with these handy tips.
To save money…
Give someone else the shopping list! It’s easy to overspend at the grocery store when there is something new and delicious at every turn. If you tend to give into these cravings, write up a list of everything you need and assign this chore to someone else. They’ll be in charge of sticking to the list, so you can relax, knowing you’re only getting what you really need.
Shop smart! Did you know that the most expensive items are usually placed at eye-level in a grocery store? Don’t fall for this trick! When you’re shopping, make sure you check out the products at the very bottom and top of the shelves. The best price might be hiding!
Download smartphone apps! Is there anything your smartphone can’t do? There are a variety of applications that can help you save money on your grocery shopping. Apps like Southern Savers, Favado, and SnipSnap can help you find deals and earn cash back on your purchases.
To save time…
Prioritize your list! You can spend a lot of time wandering around the grocery store, ticking items off a messy list. Make your life easier by organizing your list according to sections of the grocery store. For example, group the produce together, the frozen food together, and so on! Take it one step further by planning your grocery list according to the weekly meals you plan to cook.
Ask for a helper! Whether it’s a spouse or an older child, dividing and conquering at the grocery store can save you a ton of time. Split up your organized shopping list and get to it. You can even turn this chore into a fun competition by seeing who can gather their items first.
Try curbside pick-up! By ordering your groceries online, you can avoid navigating busy grocery stores and waiting in long lines. Plus, you can easily compare prices on different products as you shop, all from the comfort of your home. With curbside pick-up, you can make sure you’re getting the cheapest options without wasting time walking up and down aisles to compare price tags.
Curbside pickup is available at Walmart, H-E-B, and Kroger, and could be available at your local grocery store, too. Just ask!
