Food is expensive. There is no way to get around that fact. Milk, meat, vegetables, and fruit cost a bit of money. In researching ways people grocery shop I am in awe of those large families that not only provide good food for their family, but manage to save money at the same time.
I am not a grocery shopping guru. Don’t look for tips and tricks here. However, despite my lack of grocery shopping skills I am looking at saving money when grocery shopping. This month I am starting the process of only shopping once a month. Last week I went to two stores twice to load up on necessities like meat, eggs, and canned goods. I even have our entire month of meals planned and know exactly what I need to make these meals. Not going to lie. It was a bit of work.
However, other than buying more milk this week I need nothing else at the grocery store. From what I have learned it takes a while to get into the routine of only shopping once a month. I am hoping we can permanently switch to doing this.
How often do you grocery shop? Any once a month grocery shoppers out there?
