Shopping Smart at the Grocery Store

Shop Smart Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement Federal Credit UnionBuying groceries is essential but it doesn’t have to be expensive. Saving money is very important and shopping smart is a great way to do it. Here are 5 tips to help you get the most from your hard earned dollar!

  1. Check the Sales: Take a minute or two to check the week’s specials. If you can plan your meals for the week according to the advertised specials you will save some money. If you don’t have the time, most grocery stores have their coupons at the entrance to the store. Pick one up and grab the ones you need.
  2. Get Only What You Need: Sometimes I find that I’ll buy something just because it’s on sale. If you do that, you’ll end up buying more than you need which ultimately costs more! Also, be aware of deals like “2 for $1.” Typically you don’t need to buy 2 to get the $0.50 item price.
  3. Get a Rewards Credit or Debit Card: Getting a credit or debit card that pays you can help you earn money on monthly purchases. For example we have a debit card from Kasasa that pays 3% cash back on all your purchases! If you are spending $500 a month to feed your family, you can earn $15 just by using the card!
