Grocery saving...

Erin - posted on 04/26/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am a single mother of son is 6 and my daughter is 5...I am also currently laid off from my job of 2 years. I buy mostly generic foods (except for fresh meat products). They are generally less expensive than the name brand, and my kids cannot tell the difference. I also buy paper products in bulk...they may be a little more expensive than buying product one at a time, but in the long run it acutally saves me money. Coupons are always a plus...there are many websites that offer coupons as well as the papers. Some grocery stores also offer a "savers card"...those also save money on advertised products.

Your kids are adorable. I buy bulk on most household items that are used regularly such as toothpaste, soap, cleaners, shampoo, etc. Mostly when there is a really good sale. It saves tremendously in the long run due to stopping me from having to run to the store every time we run out of some necessity. The stores put certain things on sale to lure us in, take advantage of the lures and stock up.
