The first thing you want to do is choose the right store. A great way to lower the amount of money your spending at the grocery store is to go to a off brand store such as Aldi.
Next your going to want to go through your pantry and make a list of all the items that are needed
Next plan your menu for the week. Have an idea of what will be eaten and how much of it.
Create a better list, don't write down sugar filled treats that are not needed even if you can usually remember, writing it down will ensure you don't buy needless items
LEAVE THE KIDS AT HOME!!!! your kids are good at wheedling you to get off list items, particularly junk food.
Once at the grocery store don't buy whats at eye level. The store is smart about putting the most expensive version of products at eye level so its the first thing you see.
Buy generic, generic products usually taste just like the brand-name but are far less expensive.
Use cash, many of us tend to over spend at the grocery store because all we have to do is swipe a card. Carrying cash will limit you to the amount you can buy
Sign up for a rewards card, get a reward card for grocery stores that you shop at frequently. be weary not to buy extra just because their discounted with your card
When checking out avoid all the candy bars and drinks at the check out. These are a easy way for grocery stores to steal that last five dollars out of your wallet.
