How to save money on groceries
There is no doubt that California is expensive. When people think about saving money in California, I think they instantly think of ways to cut back on certain expenses like electricity and water.. maybe cut off the cable or ways to save on gasoline. For most people I think groceries is the LAST thing they think that they can save on– because, we gotta eat, right?!
The truth is: groceries are the first thing you can pretty much count on saving money on. Why? because the money you save is in YOUR control. No, you can’t control the prices of food but you can control when you shop, how you shop and learn to take advantage of store sales and discounts.
Couponing is a easy way to get an instant discount on items that you purchase regularly– even if it something that you have never tried or maybe want to try–coupons are a great way to get items at a discount without much needed effort.
Tip: When manufacturers release new products–you will often see high value coupons once that product is released. This is a great time to seek out coupons which may give you the item for cheap or free!
