• Five Ways to Save When You Are in the Grocery Store


Five Ways to Save when you are shopping at the Grocery Store
by Stephanie Nelson, CouponMom.com


1.     Skip the high price of convenience.  Buy food in its most basic form to get the most food for your dollar. Get the head of lettuce instead of the bag and peel your own carrots.


2.     Beware of special displays.  Don’t assume that special displays or displays at the end of an aisle are the best prices. They may actually be selling at full price.


3.     Check different departments.  A type of cheese sold in the deli department might cost more than a different brand of the same type of cheese sold in the dairy department.  One brand of a type of nuts in the produce department might cost less than a different brand of the same type of nuts in the baking aisle.


4.     Watch prices at the register and check your receipt.  Grocery stores change thousands of prices on items each week. That means there are thousands of opportunities for pricing errors.  Some stores will give you an item free if you are overcharged, but it’s up to you to point it out.


5.     Stick to your list and shop as quickly as possible.  The longer you hang around, the more likely you are to veer  from your list and spend more than you’d planned to. Get in and get out!
