I don’t know about you, but this year seems to have flown by! It’s hard to believe we’re already in the holiday season, and Thanksgiving is less than three days away! The planning and grocery list have been started and now its time to head out to the grocery store to get all this indigents and supplies needed to make your yearly Thanksgiving a success. So today I wanted to share ways on how to save a little money this Holiday Season on your grocery bill!
How many times have you walked in the grocery store and didn’t know what you needed, or grabbed something that you already had at home! One reason many people are not saving money on their grocery bill is they have no plan of action. Most people basically walk into a store without a plan. Meal planning will save you money and lots of it. Knowing what you are eating on a daily basis not only keeps you from overspending on groceries, but also keeps you from eating out constantly.
Buy in Bulk
Now, this isn’t a way for everyone to save money on groceries, but for many, it is especially if you have a large family. Simply buying in bulk, helps you to get more product for your money. Bulk often means you save because you bought a ton together. Stores like Sam’s are notorious for their items that they sell in bulk.
Shop at Walmart!
95% of all my grocery shopping is done at Walmart. I not only save time because it’s a one-stop shopping experience, I also save overall compared to other grocery stores. Additionally, be sure to get their App! I love the Savings Catcher feature that gives me money back when a competitor has special deals at lower prices!
And if you don’t have time to run in the grocery store check out the new Walmart grocery service where you can buy online and pick up! They even load it in your car! Use code REALEASY for 10 off 50 purchases! So no more having to pull the kids out of the car just to grab a couple of items!
Before I had off to the grocery store, I always check my coupon binder and coupons.com to see if there are any coupons that I can use to save money for the things that I will be buying.
It’s no secret that I’m an app queen! I have apps on my phone for almost everything! However, my favorites are the ones that help me save money or earn money on everyday purchases. One of my favorites is Ibotta which allows me to earn money on certain products each time I shop.
I recently signed up, and I have already made $30.50 back in just a couple of months! The best part is this was from buying products I was going to buy anyways!
As you can see Ibotta has a special offer for Thanksgiving this week that will allow me to earn an extra $5 just for redeeming one rebate!
They also have a popular rebate for OREO Cookies, and what better time than now than to stock up? Walmart currently has OREO’s on sale for $2.98 per pack! However, with this deal you can earn even more savings by combining the Ibotta offer with the instant redeemable $0.50 coupon on select packages making it just $1.98 per pack!
My kids love OREO’s and now that they have so many different flavors, there is something for everyone! With the Holidays, there is nothing better than OREO’s, a glass of milk, wrapped in a blanket watching Christmas movies! So be sure to stock up today on America’s favorite Cookies at Walmart!
Stick to Your Budget
And last, but not least—the most common sense way to save money on your groceries is to stick to your budget. Don’t go crazy on buying stuff that you really don’t need and stick as closely to your budget as you possibly can.
