5 easy ways to save on groceries
Did you know that the average American family spends over $6,000 a year on food? If you’re like most grocery shoppers, you need coupons—fast! Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Try these easy tips to stretch your food dollars further:
Shop with grocery coupons.
This one’s pretty obvious, but we’ll point it out anyway. ShopAtHome.com has grocery coupons—thousands of ’em! So print out a few coupons before you go shopping. It’s like putting free money back in your wallet.
Look for grocery coupons on sale items.
Keep your local supermarket ad handy when you browse for grocery coupons online. You can easily double up your savings by combining coupons with store sales.
Repurpose your leftovers.
Rather than heating up the same old leftovers, look for ways to use yesterday’s dinner as an ingredient in a new meal. How about chopping up leftover pot roast and turning it into hearty beef stew? Or breaking up extra hamburger patties into chili? Everything you re-use stretches your food budget and saves money.
Cook a little extra and freeze it.
Grilling some chicken? Cook a little extra, then cut it up and pop it in the freezer. Next time you need to add a little meat to pasta or a salad, just thaw it out. Voila — instant grilled chicken!
Make easy, ready-to-go lunch kits.
After dinner, pack up leftovers into individual serving-size containers. Then it‘s easy to grab one to take for lunch. If it’s a food you can freeze, put it away for a week or two. That way, your taste buds won’t get bored, and you can enjoy something “new” later.
