Over the last two years I have been able to reduce the amount I spend on groceries over 70%. I am now averaging $65 a week to pay for food, toiletries and paper products for my family (pets too!). A far cry from my free spending days of old.
On top of those savings, I am stretching my money so I’m able to get more for less. So far in 2009 I have saved over 44% on the items that I’ve bought. That means I have found a way to reduce my out of pocket expenses and a way to get more value for my money.
And believe it or not, we’re not eating oatmeal, pasta and beans exclusively. In fact, we regularly have meat or chicken for dinner, we have fresh produce every day, and with a few exceptions, we are enjoying many of the same products and brands that we’ve been used to.
“How did you do it?” Honestly, I have employed a variety of measures, some of which require more effort than others, and some of which are really quite simple. But none of them are trade secrets! That’s why I can share with you the Things I Do to Save on Groceries and hope that you’ll be able to accomplish the same exciting results. Just click on the links below and get ready to save!
