I have been debating whether or not to post money saving tips on my blog for a while now but I have decided what the heck! why not?! if it works for me it could help others too,so here we are. A few years back I used to go shopping without making plans on what to buy and shopping used to be a bit expensive, I now save more money and I will share my tips on how I save money.
Saving Money - The Weekly Shop
Make a Shopping List - Decide roughly what you will be eat for the following week so you are more likely to buy everything you need and won't end up buying random items. I always write down on my phone what I need for the week ahead and look at my phone while I am shopping to make sure I haven't forgotten anything.
Try Own Brand Products - I used to be reluctant to buy own brand products as I thought the quality wouldn't be the same as something a branded product would be and to be honest after I have tried a few things they is little to no difference and sometimes they are even better! Its not going to save you a fortune but over time it does make a difference.
Here is a few things I buy own brand
Buy Larger options of a Product - You would think that its expensive but if you buy large washing up liquid it lasts so much longer and it works out cheaper and it works out that way for so many products too from fruit to toilet roll, check out the price and info on the label.
I buy - Rice
Coupons/Clubcard - I usually go to different supermarkets every week as I like to have a change but I do have a tesco clubcard and they give out coupons every now and again. As for coupons they can be anywhere from magazines to online from directly a products websites.
Buy Frozen - I like to buy frozen vegetables such as broccoli, peas and spinach, they offer good value for money and they last a long time too. I used to think they weren't as fresh but loads of fruits and vegetables now are frozen not long after they are picked, so your not missing out on the nutrition of the products.
How do you save money during the weekly shop?
