1. Have a snack before grocery shopping
2. Set a grocery budget
Another quick and easy way to save money is to set up a weekly budget. And stick to it! Off the bat, calculate what your non-negotiable bills and outgoings are, such as rent/mortgage, insurances, household bills, credit card bills, school fees, loan repayments, etc. Then with the remaining amount, determine how much you’re currently spending on groceries per week (or per month), and how much you would like to spend realistically.
3. Cook meals based on their cost per serving
For example, if want to spend $270 per week on groceries and have a family of 4, with each family member eating 3 meals per day, your average cost per serving would be $3.20. Of course, this is an average and you may spend less on breakfast and more on dinner, but this is a great starting point to help you manage your grocery budget.
