Hello all, I have just a few tips and tricks for grocery shopping that I have come to learn and thought you may find helpful.
Never go hungry.
I have been guilty of doing this but it’s true you should never go grocery shopping hungry. You will pick up items you don’t need, won’t eat and spend money you don’t want to. Also, being hungry makes it easy to overlook things. The brain is more likely to misinterpret things when it’s hungry, you may buy extra of what you already have and forget the things you need which leads me into my second point.
Make a list.
It’s helpful to have a list handy. I would make sure it’s in a convenient place I choose my phone. Why not? I always have it anyway. It’s also handy to make a list as items run out and not just when you are planning a trip to the store. It will help with the frustration of OMG I forgot to get creamer and now I need to run to the store last minute.
It may seem more stressful than it is. Most grocery stores recycle sales, so it may be beneficial to check sales papers weekly to figure out. Also, stores love competition so usually if it’s on sale one place it will be a better price somewhere else. It works for the consumer if you are willing to do just a little work. It’s helpful to do your homework before running out to the store. Sure, it’s convenient to go right down the street but if you go a few miles away from your house you can end up save hundreds of dollars over time.
Use technology to your advantage.
Grocery stores have developed apps for a reason. It is to make sure your shopping trip is as easy as possible. Most apps show you exactly where items are in the store to keep from aimlessly wandering around. It can give a digital version of the sales paper to check out what’s on sale, house your loyalty card, and give coupons. Let’s just say you are just way too busy to grocery shop grocery stores have a shop online and you can pick it up later or even have it delivered for a small fee.
Take advantage of programs.
There are apps that will give you cashback just from doing what you may do every week. Shopping. My favorite being Ibotta, which gives you cash back from grocery shopping. As well as many other places and for buying items you may buy in addition to groceries. How can it get any better than getting money back on buying things that you were already going to get?
If you want to check out and use Ibotta use referral code: amysivc and both you and I earn money. (Just saying.) Thank you for reading my blog. I hope I helped or at least changed how you feel about grocery shopping. (https://ibotta.com/r/amysivc)
