     Shopping requires a time commitment and a clear head. Some plan their shopping trips - whether it is weekly,
      bi-weekly, monthly, every few days, etc. The internet is a good way to do your grocery shopping without the
                                           stress of going shopping offline.

    Saving Money on Food and Groceries by Stefanie Epperly


The average family of 4 spends about $120 a week on groceries according to figures from the U.S.
Statistical Abstract. That adds up to over $6200 per year! There are many ways we can reduce our
grocery bills, it just takes a little time each week. I will share with you ideas that I have gathered from
other people as well as tips I have used myself.

Prepare

*Keep a list of needed grocery items on your refrigerater. Children can even help with this. When
the've used the last of a particular item, have them add it to the list. This way you already have your
grocery list made by the time you go shopping and you also won't have to make unnecessary side trips
to the store to pick up items you have forgotten.
*Once a week, take about 15 minutes to scan the sales ad of the store you shop at. This way you will
know what is on sale and you can add them to your list.
*Clip coupons! The best way I've found is to only clip items you use on a regulas basis. This way you
won't be spending money on products you don't use. I used to spend more money at the grocery store
using coupons because I was buying products just because I had a coupon for it without really needing
it. So just clip the coupons for products you actually use!
*Don't go the store hungary. You will spend more than you planned because everything looks good!
*If you can, go without the kids. I always spend more when my kids are with me for 2 reasons. The first
one is they want EVERYTHING! The second is if they are being difficult you will hurry without being
able to comparison shop or you may miss some items on your list.

Shop:

*Stock up on items that are on sale. When hamburger is on sale, for example, for .99 per pound, buy at
least 5 pounds. When you get home, seperate the meat in into 1 lb packages and freeze. Take
advantage of 2 for 1 specials since meat will stay good in the freezer for quite a long time. Stock up on
canned goods that you use on a regular basis and store them in your basement or linen closet or any
other space you may have.

*Buy juice in concentrate form that mixes with water. They are cheaper that buying the pre-mixed
refrigerated juice.
*Don't buy juiceboxes. Purchase refillable plastic juice bottles with built-in straws and fill them with juice
yourself.
*Consider buying generic brands. Most items you can't tell the difference (e.g dried pasta, canned
tomato products, canned beans and vegetables, juice, flour, raisins, rice, spices, butter, crackers,
oatmeal and peanut butter). Sometimes it's worth it to pay more for name-brand items such as foil,
plastic storage bags, paper towels, and dishwashing liquid. You're not saving any money if your
generic foil rips or you need twice as many paper towels or dishwashing liquid to do the job.
*Buy large bags of chips and fill small plastic bags with them for kid's lunches

                              Super Moms Secrets For Saving Money on Groceries
                                               By Blair Critch



Food prices are on the rise today with no signs of leveling off. Many people are wondering if they could
be saving money on groceries for their everyday items as well as some splurges as well. There are still
some grocery bargains to be found out there if you know where and how to look, and we have some
handy tips that any mom or individual can use.

 First, remember that saving money on groceries starts before you leave home. Make a plan of what
meals you need to prepare for the week, including lunches and snacks. Check your cupboards and
refrigerator and make a list of the things you'll need. You won't be saving money on groceries if you
buy unnecessary items or find you need to run down to the corner store for forgotten items. You can
also check the items you need on your list versus what coupons you have and what you see in the
weekend circulars in your newspaper. Make sure you stick to your list, and the only items you can buy
that aren't on the list are ones that are on sale and that are a bargain, and that you know you'll need
later on.

 If you don't yet buy in bulk, it's time to start. If you go through items like rice, flour, sugar, soup, and
items that keep a long time very frequently, you can buy larger quantities for less money. Consider an
investment in a warehouse club as an investment in saving money on groceries; the few dollars it costs
for the membership every year is worth the money you'll save. Remember that you can always walk
through one of these stores to check out their prices and items available before actually purchasing a
club card.

 Part of saving money on groceries is making your food go farther each meal. Trying having a small
bowl of inexpensive soup before every dinner. This will fill you up and have you less hungry for the
more expensive main dish. Forego meat in your dinner at least once per week and opt for items like
stuffed peppers, soup and salad, or a large omelet instead. Some even enjoy a nice pancake dinner
every once in awhile, which of course is much cheaper than a steak! You can also be saving money on
groceries by reducing how much meat you use in other dishes; cut back on meat in spaghetti and
lasagna, soups and stew, and so on.

 You could also be saving money on groceries by using a crock pot to cook cheaper cuts of meat and
marinade or seasoning mixes. These give a lot more flavor to cheaper dishes so that you don't miss
the more expensive cuts of meat. You can also use seasoning mixes so that cheaper brands of items
like spaghetti sauces and soups are tastier.

 Many have found that saving money on groceries means cooking more things themselves rather than
relying on pre-packaged and precooked dishes. This might mean more time in the kitchen chopping
vegetables and preparing items but it can add up to savings in the long run. When you do cook, make
enough for two or three dinners or meals and freeze the other portions. You can then reheat these
items for another dinner or for snacks, which means you're saving money on groceries as food won't
go to waste.

 To really help, start a price book for your grocery shopping. Compare prices at local grocery stores as
well as the warehouse clubs and places like this. Keep track of what you're spending as well. When
you see how you're saving money on groceries by putting forth some effort with clipping coupons,
