Grocery shopping

Need some tips on how to save money grocery shopping. I also do not understnad how I can spend over $150/ wk at the grocery store but not have one complete meal...UGH!


This is what I do Jennifer.. I make a menu for two weeks and write down everything I need for those meals and then go to the store. I put the page numbers by the meal on the menu  or pull the copy so they are ready incase I do not get to cook that night.  Hope that helps

A list is essential to buying what you need rather than what you want, try a meal plan, never go to the grocery store hungry, and don't buy unhealthy snack foods or desserts (unless it's a special occasion).

I use coupons and stock up when food is on sale - combine store and manufacturer coupons to get double savings!
