A few years ago before switching to clean eating I was a couponaholic. I would spend hours and hours clipping coupons and scouring the internet for the best deals. I would save hundreds a week which was amazing I loved it. After watching a food documentary I did a ton of research and decided I needed to switch my family to a healthier life. If you have ever tried couponing for health food you know what happened next. There are very few if any coupons for healthy foods or healthy products of any kind. Couponing became a thing of the past but I still needed to save money on our food our family was growing and keeping our groceries within our budget was harder than ever. So I did what I always do and did a ton of research (I think i’m a researchaholic 😉 ). I have found several ways to keep our grocery budget where we needed it to be so I thought I would share what I have learned with you all.
- Price matching at Walmart with places like Aldi or better yet just shop for your produce at Aldi.
- Bulk order a packages of meat from the local butcher if you can buy half a cow even better.
- Get a membership to a bulk store like Sam’s Club or Costco you will need to check prices at first to make sure you are getting a better deal but we buy things like diapers and other paper products in bulk here.
- Join a local vegetable Co-Op. The one we are apart of has a real nice website you place your order online and then they with have a meet up day once a week or every other week. They buy large quantities of produce at a discount price and pass down that discount on to the co-op members.
- Hunt or fish for your food.
Using these 6 money saving tips have helped us out a ton. We do shop at places like Fresh Thyme as well to buy Annie’s cookies and crackers, and large quantities of nuts, oats, and local honey. Saving money on the other products have aloud us to spend money on the things we can’t skimp on. I hope this helps your family save money. If you have any questions or money saving tips comment below.
