Grocery Saving Tip: Buy In-Season Produce.
Produce that is in-season, or currently growing in your area, is generally priced much cheaper at most stores than produce that has had to be shipped from another area or country. I purchased sweet potatoes, navel oranges and strawberries at a discount this week.
Check out the Epicurious Seasonal Ingredient Map to search for what’s in season by state and month.
WALMART–Total Spent $111.63.
Grocery Saving Tip: If you are strapped for time, choose the store with the lowest overall prices for your area (or the one with the best sale prices for the week).
I had to keep things simple this week and do all my shopping at one store. The store in our area that has the lowest overall prices is Save A Lot, but there were items on my list that they don’t carry, so I chose Walmart. To ensure that the prices really are lower at a store, you should keep a price book or spreadsheet. (Read more in my Save More Clip Less ebook.)
Weekly Total: $111.63
