9 Mistakes Costing You Money at the Grocery Store


Leave a Comment Return to Article
When I grocery shop I mostly buy store brand products because they are usually made by the same company that makes the name brand products. But there is a couple of things that I will not buy store brand and that is cheese. I buy two brands Kraft or Sargento. I buy chicken breast with the skin still on and it is a little cheaper. I can buy split chicken breast that still has the skin on it for about $2.45, two per package. I tend to stock up on them. I also buy chicken wings for about $6.00, about 21 to package. I never buy in bulk because it wouldn't do anything but spoil at my house. I don't really cook that much anymore since the kids are all grown. Report
thank you Report
Living out I stock up on non parishables, freeze what I can and keep a supply of food to get me thru as much as a month if needed. Planning is essential ..and of all the hints..Never shopping on an empty tummy should be number ONE! I do take a list..but if there are great buys that are not on my list I will jump on them. Wise shopping leads to wise choices in meals indeed. Plus less $$ spent often! Report
Having purchased food for a family and now down to a couple, I tend to "over-buy" which means food spoils. I'm now beginning to shop a few times a week on my way home. Spoiled food (for me) leads to feelings of guilt AND wasted money! Report

Never, ever grocery shop when you're Report
Where I shop, it can be cheaper to buy chicken parts rather than a whole. Where you really save money is buying chicken parts that haven't had the skin removed. I've bought legs for as little as $.49 a pound. If I were to buy those same legs with the skin removed, it would cost me $1.19 a pound.

What I've noticed, when it comes to buying chicken, is that purchasing a whole chicken, skinless breast or just chicken wings is expensive. The dark meat parts are cheap.

I prefer to get the boneless chicken breasts. I buy them in a package of 6 or8. Keep out what I am going to need and freeze the rest. Report
