This week’s tip to save you money is to grocery shop once a week. Not only will it save you money, but it will simplify things a bit more for you and save time! Especially around this time of year we all know that time truly is money! Though you will be more prepared with your E-Mealz list to hopefully not buy too much and to stick to your list, it can be tempting to run back by the store to pick up a few odds and ends. Anytime you are in the store though be aware that you will almost always pick up more than you need. Grocers spend tons of money, time, and effort thinking up ways to get you to pick up items. Everything is considered from colors, aisle directives, and cart sizes to the items placed on end caps.
Not only will you save money by not picking up extra items and throwing them in your cart but you will also save on gas getting to and from the store. It’s amazing how much the little things add up when you think about gas prices on top of those little extras by in the span of a month or two. Do your best to check in with each family member before you take your weekly grocery trip to see if they need anything to help minimize the amount of trips needed as well.
The name of the game is to simplify everything you can this time of year, so really do your best to stick to your E-Mealz list and make those grocery trips few and far between.
