Ways to save on groceries

MomsEveryday

The lack of food coupons can be a source of frustration for families. Many have abandoned them altogether.

Where and how can you save?

Start with digital coupons, loyalty cards and points programs. Nearly every major store has this. Use their “click to clip” or digital coupon apps to save.

Reconsider using online printable coupons and those found in newspaper inserts. Even though they’re harder to come by these days, it’s definitely worth your time to look.

Use Swagbucks.com to “double-dip” your coupon savings. You’ll not only save at the store with your coupons, you’ll accumulate Swagbucks.

Your best savings are a combination of traditional grocers where you use coupons, discount grocers and additional stores you wouldn’t normally think of. For example, CVS is a great place to stop in if you’re just buying milk because you’re less likely to trigger fewer impulse buys.

Additionally, you can order your groceries online to avoid the temptation of impulse buys.

By cherry-picking the best deals, using coupons and changing up where you shop, you can save money on your grocery bill.
