One universal of humanity, no matter who you are or
where you come from,
you have to eat. Unless you grow your own food, you will have to go to
the grocery store to get it. That means money. Here are two very simple
but highly effective methods for saving money on the food you buy.
Save Money on Groceries: Coupons
you can find them everywhere, people rarely use coupons. If you are one
of those people who does not use coupons, this phrase may change your
mind. Free money. That's exactly what coupons are, free money. If
someone were to put money in your hand, no matter how small the amount,
you wouldn't throw it in the trash. That is exactly what takes place
when you throw away coupons for things you buy; you throw away free
money that the manufacturer gives you for buying their product. That
$0.30 here and $1.00 there starts to add up.
Save Money on Groceries: Plan Your Meals

When you have a specific plan for what will be eaten each day, you can avoid falling into the trap of buying food that no one eats. Planning your meals does not have to be complicated. It can be as simple as saying, "Monday - Chicken and pasta". From there, you know what to buy and are less likely to be tempted to stray from you money saving plan.
