Grocery Bill Help

Tips on Grocery Shopping

I don’t know how families can afford groceries. After a shopping  trip 2 weeks ago I came home with severe  grocery store “sticker” shock.   I’m not sure the down payment on my first car was this much. (Ok, I know things were a lot cheaper back then, but this is ridiculous.  I only bought food for me as I live alone for a week and some doggie treats for my Grand-Furbaby, Stormey who is visiting for a few days).  I knew then that I had to do something to save money on my grocery bills.

As I usually do when I need advice or information I booted my computer up and searched out a few of my favorite frugal sites and ended up at my friend, Tawra’s informative web site and signed up for her Grocery shopping Budget Ecourse.  And I am glad that I did.  This course helped me save money on my groceries.

It cost only $19.95 and today it saved me about $65.00.  I haven’t put everything into practice and I may not be able to use all of her guidance but I know that I will keep saving.

The course includes these:

          Grocery Shopping On A Budget e-course

          Money Saving Meats e-book

          Saving On Cleaning Supplies e-book

          Eating Healthy On A Budget e-booklet

          Is Eating Out Eating You Up? e-book

          224 Meals In A Hurry e-book (one of my favorite!)

          Grocery Savings e-book

The tips and ideas in the course provides information on how to sensibly buy food, prepare those foods and concepts on how to extend what you for money and food.

A frugal tip in the included course if your recipe calls for 1 lb. of hamburger, use half a pound and if you need a little filler with it use some rice or noodles.  Way cheaper than the hamburger.  Works great for a casserole.

What I learned about portion control should also help me maintain my weight (or even lose).  I bought more water today and less milk and save about $4.00 just in that.  Didn’t buy any chocolate milk, and only bought a small amount of juice that I’ll save for a “treat”.  You do have to do some sacrificing but at the rate our groceries are going up you are going to have to do it anyway.  This ecourse gives you an educated way of accomplishing that.

I highly recommend this course.  And if you don’t like it, she offers a 60 day money back guarantee.
