My groceries are running around $400/month. Add on to that an additional $140/month for dining and that is $540/month for a family of three (2 adults and a four year old).Â One thing to note is I only include food and drink with my groceries. Anything such as toilet paper and paper towels I put under household.
To me, the amount we are spending is just too high.Â I know we can get it down farther, but I needed some tips.
Well, I was cruising the forum at Saving Advice and I came across a great thread! It was started by a member that was trying to get her grocery bill down.
Here’s just a few things I learned…check the price of milk at gas stations because it may be cheaper, check out prices at local organic stores and don’t go back into a store to get something that you forgot.Â You are very likely to come out with more than you went in for.Â Just tough it out until your next trip if you can.
If you are trying to save on your groceries, I highly suggest checking out the thread here. In fact, cruise around the boards a little. There’s some great info over there.
I’m pumped…I’m making a list…my grocery bill is going down 🙂
