How To Lower Your Grocery Bill In 4 Steps

We have all had the struggle of paying our internet, cellphone, gas, medical, and utility bills while desperately trying to keep enough in the bank to pay for the ever-increasing cost of groceries. Read on to learn a few tips on how you can lower your grocery bills.

Paying bills on time and with enough funds left over to buy food, medication, and gas to go back to work is hard to do these days. DoNotPay can help you better organize your bills and obtain grants to help pay them. 

Learn How to Make a Meal Plan

One of the keys to lowering your grocery bill is to have a plan before you walk into the grocery store. Know what you need and stick to that list. In the long run, you will avoid getting junk foods and novelty foods that you might have otherwise picked up without a list.

These companies offer ways to meal plan, some even offer grocery delivery in some areas:

Plan for a small amount of variation as the prices of items continue to rise. Making items from scratch may be cheaper than paying for the convenience of prepackaged goods.

Clip Coupons

Knowing what you are buying ahead of time gives you the opportunity to find deals and clip coupons. Some coupons may even get you the item for free if properly used.

There are a number of coupon clipping websites you can visit. DoNotPay can also help you find discounts, deals, and coupons easily.

Buy in Bulk for Savings

Buying large amounts of shelf-stable goods, or in bulk, is an excellent way to reduce your weekly grocery bill.

For example, a stick of butter costs around $1. In a wholesale store, like Sam's Club, you can buy the same butter for $5 for six sticks. If you don’t get them at the same time and you use one stick a week, it will cost you $6 to buy six sticks of butter plus additional costs for gas, not to mention your time and effort.

Buying in bulk and storing the extra can save you money and trips to the store. When you do your weekly run, you only get the items that are perishable such as:

  • Fresh fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Milk
  • Eggs

Some items that can be bought in bulk and stored until use include:

  • Meats that you can freeze and store
  • Beans
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Canned goods
