How to Save on Groceries Video

I LOVE going grocery shopping every week. Excitement floods my heart thinking about the tasty entrees my wife will cook and imagining the finished product. Being a chef-in-training (or at least so in my mind), my job is to make sure that we have all the ingredients for the recipes.

I used to only purchase name brand items I was familiar with, often overlooking the generic ones. It wasn’t until I had to stick to our grocery budget that I realized I could save money without compromising quality.

Watch the video to learn some tips on how to save money on groceries this week.

Did you know that you pay a premium when you purchase items such as shredded cheese, pre-washed or pre-portioned items? Life can get busy, but saving money by doing these things at home only takes a few minutes.

If you’re interested in other ways to maximize your savings goals incorporate couponing. Some coupons can be used by scanning the coupon code on your smartphone without having to go through newspaper clippings.
