Ways to Save on Your Grocery Bill

If the word dinner makes you picture a big meal with meat, two steaming sides of fresh veggies from the farmers market, a warm bread, and a dessert—chill out and give yourself a break. This isn’t 1952, and supper doesn’t have to be a big feast. Your family will survive on BLTs, beans, omelets or a big salad a few times a week.

Don’t be afraid to serve simple meals or have breakfast for dinner to make your groceries stretch.  

Just a little rethinking of the last meal of the day can shrink your grocery budget. 

Are generic brands really as good as the name brands?

Consumer Reports says most store brands measure up to the name brands in taste and quality—and they’re usually 20–25% lower in price too!

Walk into the grocery store with a full stomach, and you might be shocked by how much lower your grocery bill is!
