Food Bills Too High

You'll be less likely to buy things you don't need if you shop after a meal. A full tummy equals a fuller wallet.

You'll spend less money if you shop with a list. So write down what you need and buy only what is on the list.

Usually, the store's own brands taste just as good as the name brands, and they cost a lot less, so give them a try.

You can dramatically reduce your grocery store bills by using coupons. Some people have turned it into a science that enables them to buy an entire cart of groceries for a few dollars.

Buy fewer convenience foods. You pay extra for that convenience.

Be careful when buying large sizes. Sometimes the unit price is more.

You can save a lot of money on produce, and get higher quality, if you shop at a farmer's market.

Those cash register scanners are not always accurate. Make a list of the real cost of each item you buy and make sure the cash register receipt is a match.

This is not a grocery store tip but it can still save you money. Bring your lunch to work. It really can reduce your food costs.
