How to Save Money on Your Groceries This Week

Share This Post

Groceries have become so expensive lately. With price inflation, package “shrink-flation” (when you buy a smaller package of an item for more money than before), and limited options, it might feel like you have no other choice but to hand over more of your hard-earned money to buy the groceries your family needs.

But there are a few things you should know when it comes to saving money on groceries in this current climate of price hikes and empty shelves.

1. To save money and cut your grocery bill, you do not have to clip coupons. Contrary to popular belief, clipping coupons isn’t the only way, and might not be the best option to help you save money. 

2. You don’t have to spend hours each week in order to save money.

3. Finding methods that are sustainable for you is key to saving money on groceries every week.

There are some easy ways that will help you save money on your groceries this week…and every week, even when you’re busy and have limited time. The secret is in your routines.

You should have a kitchen routine, a meal prep or cooking routine, and a shopping routine. Each routine helps you save money before you’ve even left your home.

Your Kitchen Routine

Your kitchen routine is all about how you store and organize your food. Storing your food properly enables your groceries to last longer and eliminate food waste, which is a huge money waste as well.

Whether you store in your pantry, freezer, or fridge, it’s important to know the shelf life of your items, how you can prepare them to use them more efficiently, and how to save time in your kitchen when you’re preparing meals.

Your Meal Prep Routine

Creating a meal plan the right way can make a significant difference in your overall grocery budget. Yes, there is a right way to create your menu and it’s not randomly choosing recipes you want to cook that week. Instead, create a meal plan that serves your budget by being mindful of your stockpile.

Your Shopping Routine

If your other two routines are set up properly, your shopping routine will save you a LOT of money each week. Your shopping routine includes writing your list, learning your prices, shopping during sales, and stocking up on great deals. Saving money on your groceries takes a few steps, but once you master your routines, saving money becomes second nature.

Your routines should save you money, even when you’re busy.

Sure, you could add coupon clipping to your routine to save money. But the process of clipping and searching for deals can take time, and many of us just don’t have enough to dedicate to this task.

When I first started working on cutting my grocery bill, I tried to create a coupon clipping routine, thinking this was the best way to save big on my groceries. And for a while, it was fine. I was saving money and stocking up on items my family needed.

But, as my kids grew up and more activities and events were added on my calendar, my time became much more limited. The routine just wasn’t sustainable for my lifestyle, so I needed to find a routine that still saved me money and gave me back the time I needed to spend elsewhere.

What I Learned About Grocery Savings

  • I had to learn about how to shop for groceries from scratch, learning from my mom and searching for tips and tricks.
  • I had to understand what unit prices were and how they affect your overall grocery savings
  • How to stock up without cluttering your home
  • How to know what a good sale price is
  • When I should buy certain items and when to wait or substitute.

These were the principles that created my money-saving grocery routine.

And throughout the years, many of those principles have stuck with me and continue to help me save a lot of money on my groceries without spending excessive amounts of time.

My mom also taught me to pay attention to which stores I chose to shop at.

I never realized that the grocery stores you choose to shop at can make a huge difference in how much money you spend and ultimately how much money you save. Each store serves a certain demographic and has a set standard for how they price their items. So, it’s important that you determine which stores can save you the most money, because those are the ones you want to shop more frequently.

Each new concept I learned led me to search for more ways to save money. Some of the methods I tried worked and others didn’t, either because they didn’t align with my priorities or just didn’t fit my lifestyle. 

Slowly, I began to create a system that helped me save money easily without wasting time or energy. It’s been over ten years and I still use these same principles when creating and adjusting my routines. They not only keep me organized, but they also save me time and enable me to feed my family all of their favorite meals without compromising our grocery budget.

My system is easy to learn, easy to apply, and easy to sustain. It helps you save money with practical methods that work, even when you’re busy.

These are the same methods that helped me take my grocery budget from $1,200 per month to just $400 per month for my family of four, living in L.A., one of the most expensive cities in the U.S. And for the record, this is just for food, not toiletries or paper goods.

Imagine having an additional $800 per month in savings, how much would that help your current financial situation? Saving $800 per month on our groceries meant that we had breathing room in our budget, something we needed so desperately. Because of our grocery savings, we were able to stop living paycheck to paycheck, pay off more debt, and have more money for the things that mattered to us, like family vacations and creating long term wealth. 

Perhaps one of the best things about these methods is that they don’t deprive you or force you to remove your favorite items from your grocery shopping list. Each method works with your lifestyle and priorities so that you create a routine that works perfectly for you and your family.

If you’re currently struggling with your grocery budget, feel like you’re buying less and paying more money, learning these techniques might just be the game-changer you need. 

Imagine all the things you can do with the money you save. 

You can pay off debt, go on vacation, save for your dream home…your choices are endless!

  1. Hi! Is the class every Wednesday? Also what if we can’t afford the $$ to take the class? I’m not asking for a handout on it because obviously you work really hard on this and need to be compensated for it. I was just wondering if there is any other way to get the information maybe cheaper?

    1. Hi there, thanks for asking this important question. Since that post, we’ve actually made it a recorded class, so once you purchase it, you can attend anytime that works for you.
