5 Ways to Save Money on Groceries and Shop Less!

Are you trying to stay out of the store because of high food costs, but keep running out of something and need to go to the store?? Here is a list of ways to eliminate multiple shopping trips throughout the week that will keep you out of the stores AND help you save money!

 

  1.  Menu Planning
    I know it may be a hard concept for some, but if you can take the time right now to think out the next week of meals and snack, you can go to the store ONCE and be done.  START WITH WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY- and build from there – you may just need 1 or 2 items to throw a meal together and not have to buy as much. You may like going to Costco but then you may still need to go to other stores for the fill-in items. If you can get everything you need at ONE store, that is even better  Smart & Final has the large items like Costco but also regular grocery items as well. I have been able to get my whole list there before. Grocery Outlet has worked well, and also Walmart and Target- but I have had to deal with larger crowds.
    Here is a basic printable for a menu and shopping list– if you google “free menu plan shopping list”, there are so many to choose from so you can find one that works for you.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  2. Make a List 
    If you are heading into the stores, MAKE A LIST. Once you have made a menu, make a list. Don;t forget to put things like foil, oil, butter, half & half or any staples you need to make everything. If you are shopping at a store that sells your household and beauty items then add those too. Don’t panic if your totals end up being higher at the store when you do this- You are shopping long term, and this will still be less than the multiple trips you take- those add up, especially when you impulse buy or are hungry when you shop.
    Tip: Once you make a menu and list- take a picture of it, that way if you go to the store and forget it-you have it on your phone= I learned this the hard way!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
  3. Utilize Pick Up and Delivery Services
    Instacart has the options of almost all grocery stores and you can choose what you want from where. Is there a fee-YES, but you are not using your time and gas, and you won’t be in the stores with other people. Some grocery stores have their own pick-up and delivery services as well. In the past you may not have wanted the fees, but now it may be worth it because you are quarantined at home. If stores have a pick-up option you will be able to just drive up and have them load your car for you also .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  4. Utilize App Coupons and Cash Back Apps
    Before you shop, if your store has an app- load the coupons to your card. If you use Cash Back apps like Ibotta, Checkout 51 or Fetch, check through those and see if what you like you can save or get cash back on them. A quick scan through the coupons or a quick picture of your receipt can get you great savings with minimal effort. For the apps I use all the time and how to Get and use them GO HERE                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
  5. Stick to Your Budget 
    If you decide what you have to spend BEFORE you go shopping you will be less likely to buy unnecessary items. If you order your groceries online you will be able to see your total and know if you need to take out or are able to add anything else.

I used to hear from people that they just don’t have the time to do some of these things, but if you do take the time now while you have it- it gets EASIER. Then when this quarantine is all over you will have developed some money saving habits that will last!!!

If you have ANY questions or need someone to walk you through menu planning, budgeting, online grocery ordering just email me Diana@pantryoverflow.com I would love to help you!!

Family Meals Month With Smart & Final + 3 Ways to Make It Easier!

Did you know September is Family Meals month?

To say things are different from last September is an understatement for sure-but we have had MORE opportunities for Family Meals this month than ever before!!!

My  kids are distance learning for school and we have been able to have breakfast, lunch AND dinner together on most days- which is just amazing. My husband has changed to having an office at home as well, so he is able to join us for lunch and breakfast many times also. No matter what negatives there have been- the fact that we get to enjoy meals together is definitely made a difference in our family.

Recently I have shared with you all about Smart & Final-on trip and your are done- well that has definitely been true for us.

Just today I went to Smart & Final and not only bought produce, meat, milk and other groceries, but I bought paper plates, laundry soap, coffee syrup, pet supplies and paper products!!

You all know how much I love finding deals at so many stores, but the convenience of getting everything at one store is a LIFESAVER for me these days.  We are saving money from buying school lunches, sandwich bags, etc-but we have changed the way we have eaten also.  We no longer have to eat and pack the same things everyday!

Here is my son and granddaughter sharing a cheeseburger- the 10 for $10 Burgers at Smart & Final- along with their large packs of buns is a major staple in my house.  Family meals around the table are great, but a school break in the living room is always fun too! Whether it is all 7 of us- or 5, or 9 if we have visitors- we have made it a point to not eat alone if other people are home. Another reason why I love that I can buy bulk items AND individual items at Smart & Final.

 

We can make 10 burgers with cheese and fixings for less than $20 and EVERYONE is happy about it! Add a bag of chips, and/or some fruit and you won’t hear any complaints because they will all be busy eating! This is a once a week meal used to be for dinner- but now it has become a school lunch!

 

Here are some tips for budget friendly ways to have meals as a family-

1.Do not feel like you have to make every meal a big deal. 
It is nice to have a home cooked meal, and have this great family time of cooking together- but there is something about just sitting down, enjoying the meal and not cleaning up for an hour after. PAPER PLATES are a amazing!

Here are a few of our family favorites for easy and quick meals (very filling and budget friendly too)!

2. Do not limit family meals to just dinner!

We start out having breakfast together, but even with the intention of eating together the other meals often one or more of us have something come up. It is MUCH easier for us to have BREAKFAST as a family. Especially right now since we aren’t hurrying to different work and school locations in the mornings.

This big bag of First Street Pancake and Waffle Mix last us all month! We have made pancakes, different shapes and colors of waffles, even waffles and ice cream for dessert! It makes for a fun morning- and I highly recommend the First Street Bacon as well!

 

3. Get everyone involved!

When your kids can get excited and have a say in the meals, they are more excited to eat together. When I make meals that maybe they aren’t excited about they may fight me a little bit or be unpleasant at the table and 10 minutes later we are done. I often tell my kids to pick what their favorite healthier dinners are and they will shop and make  it with me. If they make it then they don’t usually complain about it- or let anyone else!

There are so many benefits to having meals together. If it works to have family meals together take advantage of it! Smart & Final makes it SOOO easy to grab all you need too! For more benefits go to https://www.fmi.org/family-meals-movement/about
