Saving Money on Groceries
I came across this article yesterday on Vanguard.com (a leading financial planning and investment firm) on one of our favorite topics at The Dinner Daily, saving money on groceries! There are some great tips and its no surprise that being organized and shopping with a plan top the list. This simple strategy can help you stay away from impulse or uneeded purchases ( a real budget killer) and keep you on track in the store. We know this to be true as we hear it all the time and experience it ourselves. I know when I go into the store and have no idea what I need I spend so much more. When I have a list based on what our meals are for that week I am always pleasantly surprised at how low my bill is at the checkout.
I remember from my days in public accounting the saying “Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail” and that is so true! So if you are looking to lower your grocery budget this year starting with a plan is a good place to start! We hope you find this article helpful.
