$700 grocery bill savings, you can do it too

It’s been two months of my 2013 financial/grocery goals and I’ve already saved $347 with price matching and reduced our family grocery spending by $700.  I’ve cut my monthly grocery spending by 50%, so exciting!  How are you doing?

You can have the same success, just follow these three simple strategies:

Prepare to Price Match: I still use price matching as my main method of grocery savings, but since I’ve been price matching for a year now, I’ve also found success shopping directly at places that have great deals–like Sam’s and Aldi.  I purchase select items from each of these stores, because I know when I have a good deal and save the other shopping trips for my price matching at Walmart. I’ve been going to Sam’s and Aldi once a month and Walmart twice a month.  Our cabinets are stocked with food and our grocery bills are down! Down by 50%!

Price Match in the store: Now, when I’m in the store to price match, I ONLY purchase the items on sale and I mean the really, really good deals.  I tend to purchase enough for 6 months.  Wait for the seasonal time to buy your items (like BBQ sauce in the summer and Frozen Food now, after all March is Frozen Food month–I got frozen berries 50% off!)

Eliminate Excess: Sure saving a bundle in the grocery store is going to help, but if you make it a priority to eliminate excess from your spending, you’ll find it much easier to reap the benefits of financial freedom.

I want you to save money this year, you deserve it.  Yes, it will take a little work to get started–but imagine the reward and keep focused on your goal.  And remember, any savings is worth it.  My 2012 original goal was $10 savings per week, for a total of $520 savings per year–I was able to save $2217 last year.  I’m making progress on my goals, saving my family money and helping us to have the financial freedom to do what we want!
