Show me the money……….

If you can shop later in the day to take advantage of markdowns in your grocery store’s bakery and meat departments. Also make sure to keep an eye on the prices at the salad bar. If you only need a few artichoke hearts or croutons, they may be cheaper to buy there by the pound than elsewhere in the store. Save that money!

Save some money…………….

Grocery Shopping Hints………….

 

* If you can save money, over the course of a month or two, by buying in bulk, plan to do so. But be sure that you’re going to use all of it before it gets bad — it isn’t cheaper to buy in bulk if you don’t use it.
* Buy produce in bulk when it’s in season or on sale and freeze it. After washing, submerge small amounts of veggies in boiling water for a minute; cool in ice water. Drain, then pack in a freezer container. Wash berries and lay in a single layer on a baking tray and freeze; place in an airtight container.
* Don’t limit it yourself to the same fruits or vegetables every week. Try a new fruit or vegetable each week
* Store Employees may agree to mark down prices on items that are expiring the next day — so be sure to ask!
* Canned salmon. It has more calcium than fresh, keeps a lot longer, and it’s also a more economical choice.
* Shop only once a week. You’ll tend to spend more if you stop at the store every day or several times a week.
* Clean out your fridge, freezer, and cupboards once a month. Use up what you bought before buying more.

Kitchen Grumblings…

Saturday I was at a local Kroger. Had everything I needed and rolled toward the checkout. i had a choice of 4 lines CANDYand of course i ended up picking the wrong line. I was third in line and two carts quickly got behind me. The person that was checking out of course wanted to put a couple of items back and get a bigger size, then she had her own grocery bags and wanted certain items in certain bags, and then (and this always a bad sign if you’re in a hurry) she opened up her coupon notebook!! So I settled in for long wait. Looked at a couple of gossip magazines and then started looking at the candy selection.

 

 

Having been diagnosed with Diabetes 2 quite sometime ago I rarely even look at candy unless Sugar Free candy like Hershey’s Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Bites. But scanning the candy selection I saw some very small bars and packages of candy, real small sizes. Then I noticed they had some regular size bars and bags but they were marked Giant or Extra Big. Well these so called Giant and Extra Big bars and bags were te just the normal size of candies back when I ate candy, around 2002 I guess. And I’m not even commenting on the inflated prices. But I guess the shrinking sizes of candy is no worse than other shrinking sizes of all grocery items. Just grumbling, thanks!

If you’re buying produce that is priced by the item rather than by the pound (such as heads of lettuce, lemons, or avocados), take advantage of the store’s scales and weigh the item to find the heaviest. This way, you’ll be sure you’re getting the most for your money.
