Frugal Food Shopping
My biggest frugality is waiting for meat sales and the "bogo" events. When my supermarket has what they call their "huge meat sale," I get beef roasts using the bogo method and only pay around $10 for 2 roasts. I buy a whole pieces of Pork on sale at $1.49 per pound and only pay $10 for 2 nice size roasts. I have the butcher cut the piece in half. Sometimes they have two Bob Evans small packages of sausage on sale for $5. That is about $1 off on each one.
So I may not be the world's most frugal shopper but I do try to save a penny here and there when I can.
I also have a subscription to Sam's Club and I shop there about once every other month. I like to buy my staples there and I'm saving in the long run. My family likes tuna fish and I buy 10 cans for $7.50. I also buy 10 cans of meat ravioli for around $7. I love stuffing with any of my meals and I get 6 pouches in the box of those.
I know you can save a bundle by shopping at the dollar stores (Dollar General or Family Dollar) but I buy a select number of things there. My friend buys her cat litter there because it is a lot cheaper.
There are hundreds of stores you can shop for their specials only but then you have spent all of your savings in gasoline to get there. So I say, read the ads that come in the mail, plan your shopping and get value for your money.
