A lot of people I know meal prep and budget for their groceries. This saves so much money compared to going to the grocery store with no plan in place of how much to spend and what to buy. It pays in so many ways to go to the grocery store with a specific food budget and a list of what items are needed.
When you go to the grocery store, do you bring and follow a grocery list? This helps to comparison shop and shop for non-brand items where it's ok to downgrade and buy generic such as canned goods. Produce I wouldn't skimp on other than buying in-season as produce is so important to be fresh. I'd be more inclined to shop the grocery stores that have the best produce that skimping in this particular department.
This brings me to ask, how do you save on groceries? Are there more tips and tricks we can share with each other in the grocery department when it comes to budgeting? I'd love to know! Signed, Filipina Budget Girl.
