Throughout this pandemic, there has been significant instability in the economy. Hopefully, you’re one of the fortunate ones who have kept their job and are still working. Whether that’s the case for you or not, we’d love to pass along some simple tips for saving money – specifically when shopping for groceries.
Go back to basics! We can easily fall into a habit of buying groceries that save us time but don’t necessarily save us money. Focus on things that are a staple in the pantry, like pasta, rice, canned fruits and vegetables. It may take a little longer to prepare things like these, but they last a lot longer and are often considerably cheaper than other products.
Don’t be afraid of generic brands! What your parents always told you when you were a kid is actually true – the store brand is (almost) exactly the same as the popular brand! It’s just a lot less expensive.
