Quick grocery shopping tips to stretch your budget

You save more by doing your own slicing and dicing. For instance, a cut and cored pineapple costs $5.99 while a whole one is sold at $3.99. It does not take a lot to see which one saves you more. Yes, doing your own prep work is tasking but if you want more money to stay inside your pocket, you have to put in a little elbow work. Go for the whole chicken, block cheese, or fruit and do the chopping yourself. Place them inside clear zipper bags or plastic containers and create your own smaller servings. For everything else, always buy with coupons to get discounts like this SAVE $1.00 off any One (1) Silk Half Gallon. There is no point buying at the regular price when the manufacturers and stores have created the coupons for you!
