Do you want to know some great ways to save on your grocery budget without using coupons?

I am all for using coupons when I have them but I do not make time to make a job out of couponing.

My life just won’t allow for that.

Therefore, I have learned some ways that help you save on your grocery budget without using coupons.

1. Make a Menu

This tip is so helpful to me.

There is nothing worse than getting to the store and standing there trying to figure out what you might want to fix for dinner.

This usually ends up in you buying more than you should or only buying part of the ingredients, which sends you back to the store to spend even more, especially when you pick up extras on the trip back.

Making a menu not only keeps you organized but it helps you save on your grocery budget.

This also gets you in and out of the store quickly.

2. Make a List

I do not want to go to the grocery store without a list.2

That is where things begin to go quickly downhill.

You begin just throwing things in the buggy without thinking and end up spending way more than you intended to.

Make a list before you go to the grocery store.

Sticking to your list helps you to save even more.

3. Shop Sales

Shop sales in the grocery store.

If you can, get hold of the sales paper before you go to the grocery store.

Scan it and plan your list around it, taking advantage of the best sales to get more for your money.

Sometimes it is even wise to buy just a little bit ahead to have for future meals.

For example, you might want to pick up an extra barbeque sauce if it is on sale for the next time you are in the mood for ribs.
