Want to be a Frugal Shopper?

Here are a few tips to become a frugal shopper from "The Frugal":
  • Make a shopping list and stick to it.
  • Think of alternative sources of proteins such as beans, eggs, cheese, and fish
  • Check out local sources for fresh fruit, veggies, and meat markets
  • Look for bargains on the higher and lower shelves
  • Look for in store bargains and unadvertised specials
  • Track sales and stockpile regularly used items when on sale
  • When affordable, buy a freezer and freeze fresh items for use in off season
  • Look at the unit prices...larger is not necessarily cheaper
  • Sale prices may not mean a better buy...use your math skills or apps on your phone to determine the best prices
  • Convenience foods, splashy packaging, disposable, and name brands equal higher prices...try generic.  If not satisfied with quality or taste, most stores will refund your purchase
  • Be sure to ask for a raincheck on sold out items
Following these simple tips can reduce your shopping total by as much as 50 percent.  Remember, to save money you should invest time!
