I know I’ve done a few posts on this topic – but we can always use more!
- It’s cheaper on the outer loop. Most of the stuff you really need – fruits, veggies, milk, etc – is in the outer loop of the store. Some of the stuff you need is in the aisles (e.g. cereal), but a lot of the stuff you don’t need (e.g. chips!) is too!
- Endcaps (stuff at the head of an aisle) aren’t always a promotion or on sale – they may just be there to catch your eye!
- Check out the bottom shelf. Bottom shelf stuff is often 50% cheaper than stuff at eye level – cause they haven’t had to pay extra to be stocked at eye level!
- Buy a whole ham, turkey breast, etc (preferably on sale) and then have the store slice it up for you!
- Bulk doesn’t always mean deal. So very true – I bought a bunch of Hershey’s kisses, and they cost *way* more tha I expected. I should have just bought a bag of them!
- Buying produce in bulk is often cheaper than buying it individually – but only worth it if you’re going to use up everything in the bag!
- Check when your items are being scanned to make sure the price is being rung in properly.
