-Look at Sales Ads before you shop
-Plan your Menu off of the Flyer – Stores offer loss leaders. They advertise these good deals to get you into the store. Plan your menu on these sale items especially the meats and produce that are on sale. Shop the outside aisle of the store.
– Prepared food like cut up fruit and pre-cleaned veggies are much higher than doing the work yourself
-Sign up for Store loyalty cards and store apps – Store offer special discounts and even free items
-Look high and low: Eye level in prime real estate – the most expensive/highly marketed brands. Don’t be afraid of Generic brands. They are most likely made by name brand companies anyway.
-Price match- with a little research you can save, by knowing what is on sale at other stores. If you don’t have the time to research the items before you shop consider signing up for Walmart’s Savings Catcher. This app lets you scan your receipt and then finds the closest competitors and price matches for you. If a lower price is found, the money will go into your account which can be used as a Walmart E-Gift Card.
– Always check the unit price. Just because it is a larger size does not mean it is the best price.
-Don’t be afraid of Coupons – Can be found in-store or in the Sunday paper -If you have coupons, make sure you bring them to the store and then give them to the cashier. I place my coupons in the basket with the food, so that when I am unloading the groceries at check out I get all the coupons too.
These are just a few secrets to saving money at the supermarket.
