How to save on your grocery bill, Part 2in Media Centre
1. Buy only what you need and can use within the given expiry date for food items. Even if it’s on sale, it will only be good if you can use them!
2. Buy generic. They are cheaper and usually are at the same quality as the branded ones. So anytime you get to try a generic brand of food item and you like it, continue buying.
3. Use leftovers. You don’t know how much money is wasted when we throw away left overs. So use them. Maybe plan a meal using leftovers.
4. Pack your lunch for work the next day. You can use leftovers! Going out for lunch at a minimum of $10 per day will leave a $200 dent in your wallet per month (if you work Mondays to Fridays).
5. Make use of rewards from your local grocery store. One of our staff members use PC optimum when shopping at Canadian superstore. You earn points when you buy select grocery items. You can then use your points towards your grocery bill the next time you shop. She usually gets at least $40 off of her groceries at Superstore every other month. That’s a large box of diapers for FREE!
6. Organize your food storage cupboards and check your fridge regular to see what needs to be stocked up and what is there. If you don’t know what you have, you may end up buying these items again.
