5. Teach your children to become informed shoppers

A recent study has shown that grocery shopping with the kids in tow adds more than $100 per month to the bill.

So, if these little impulsive shoppers come with you to the grocery store, you should give them a choice: to either select a little treat or snack for their lunches; or they can be given $3, which they can use to buy themselves something that’s not on the grocery list.

6. Check the price twice

  • Check the expiration date on the label.
  • Also make sure that the price that appears on the monitor at the checkout is in fact the right price (especially if the item is on special), because sometimes the checkout cash systems are not up to date.

I find I waste money and food because I’m only shopping for three retired persons. How can I store cottage cheese, or specialty greens when I don’t need them in my recipes again for maybe weeks on end?
