Buy Produce in Season

Seasonal produce is not just a better price, but it tastes better too! Buying in season produce is one of the easiest ways to save money and can help you enjoy produce more by eating what’s in season. You can buy seasonal produce at a fraction of the price and then freeze or prep it for long term storage to use throughout the year.

Use Grocery Store Apps

Whether it’s to check the weekly ad, schedule a pickup, or to clip digital coupons, you are missing out if you’re not downloading the apps for the grocery stores you are visiting! Many apps offer rewards programs and track your favorite items offering extra savings on the things your buy often!

The Walmart app can help you not only make sure you’re getting the lowest price, but help you see how much of an item is left in stock. You can also use your local grocery store app to check on sale items and use the sales to meal plan around. 

Even if you don’t use these apps to clip coupons or shop for groceries, they can help you find what you need faster and keep track of what you wanted to buy in the store.

Put one thing back

An easy tip to use while you’re out shopping for groceries or just browsing a store for a leisurely shopping trip is to put one thing back before you leave. Perhaps it’s the candy bar you snuck in while waiting in line or that pair of shoes you could justify later. This will also help cut down on impulse purchases and help you stay under budget at any store you’re visiting.

Ask for discounts

How many times have you missed happy hour discounts on appetizers, kids eat free opportunities, or a discount or upgrade on a hotel room because you didn’t ask? Before you accept that this is the final price you will pay, ask if there are any discounts you could use or apply to your order. This could be a simple search on your phone for a coupon, or a code using an app like Honey.

My motto: What's the worst thing they can say? No? And really, that's not that bad now is it?
