In fact, there are a variety of ways you can save on your weekly food shop.
So today I have some great tips to share with you on how to save on your grocery bill including 14 ways you can save on your weekly food shop this week.
Plus as a bonus and to help you even further, I made a downloadable handout for you which you can print out:
14 WAYS TO SAVE ON YOUR GROCERY BILL
Avoid shopping when hungry or without a shopping list.
Plan your meals around the weekly supermarket specials
Utilise reward programs like Flybuys and Woolworths Rewards where you can get $$'s back on your shopping
Shop at cheaper stores like Aldi and Costco to help save on produce
Buy your fruit and vegetables from your local markets and farm gates
Buy the imperfect fruit and veggies like the "odd bunch" from Woolworths which are cheaper but are still great quality
Buy items in bulk such as pantry items or freezer items which last longer
Stock up on canned and dried legumes for affordable protein and bulk in your meals. Tinned fish is also another nutrient-dense and cheap option.
Avoid recipes that require special ingredients that you may only use once or twice
Make meals in bulk i.e soups, stews, curries etc...
Make meals from scratch vs pre-made
Instead of buying soft drinks and bottled waters opt for a soda stream or water filter jug where you can reuse over and over again at minimal cost.
Rather than buy pre-made snacks make your own ie. protein balls, biccies, dips, nut mix's, popcorn etc...
Swap commercial cleaning products with homemade using vinegar, bicarb soda, lemon and essential oils.
I hope you found these tips helpful on saving on your weekly grocery bill, I have personally put many of these in place over the years and find they save us hundreds of dollars a year.
