It is easy to come home from the supermarket shocked by your bill – but there are easy ways to pay less for groceries, and these smart strategies start at home.
First, look for your store’s weekly circular or online ad for easy ways to save. Most stores offer deep discounts on items in every department, so buying them while they are on sale is key. Digital/app or in-store coupons can offer plenty of extra savings. Make a meal plan and a shopping list – and avoid impulse buys. Paying by debit card can help you stay within your budget.
