Have you gotten into the habit of doing big bulk trips at the grocery store? It makes a lot of sense. Planning one big trip a month for bulk staples cut backs on the expense and amount you have to carry for another three weeks. You can also redeem coupons like this 25¢ OFF ONE Puffs Product (excludes Puffs To-Go and trial/travel size) at one go and pile on the savings. If you do bulk buying right, you save money, time, and effort all at once! Just remember to keep your focus.
Avoid buying on impulse. Just because an item is sold in bulk does not mean you are saving if you were not planning on buying it in the first place. Stick to your list! Meanwhile, for fresh items like produce, dairy, bread, and eggs, buy them weekly and make sure to buy what you can only use up before anything expires.
If you clip coupons, like this SAVE $2.50 Off any ONE (1) Armor All Outlast Product, make sure you use them with enough sense so that you truly cash in on the savings. First of all, don’t buy more than you need. No matter how great a sale is, it is only beneficial to you if you are able to use everything up. If you end up throwing away half of what you bought, then there is not much point in it, is there? Evaluate what you are throwing out. Is there a significant amount of bread, meat, or produce in your bin? Buy less next time. Over buying is expensive so make a point of using what you buy. Freeze or repurpose leftovers. Get creative with your pantry and what other ingredients are available to you. Be mindful of unopened products as well and always take stock of your cupboards so you don’t buy what you don’t need.
