How much do you spend on groceries?

Do your grocery bills feel significantly higher than just a few years ago? You’re not alone. Like seemingly everything these days, food is getting more expensive. So while professionals advise limiting your monthly grocery bill to $200 per person (so $800 for a family of four), that’s all too often easier said than done.

If you’ve been hoping to shave some dollars off of that monthly expense, consider these tips:

  1. Meal plan

When you know what your family will be eating ahead of time, it’s easier to buy food that will actually be eaten—and minimize food waste.

  1. Do smaller (but more frequent) grocery shops, if you can swing it.

While grocery shopping can be a pain, doing small shops more often increases your chances of eating what you buy—and limits the amount of produce destined to rot in your fridge. If time is a valued commodity, you may want to look into online grocery shopping options in your area—simply click on the items you want, and either arrange a time to swing by and pick them up or have them delivered.

  1. Decrease your meat intake.

This one can be difficult for those meat lovers among us—but you don’t have to go cold turkey (pun intended). Simply introducing a few vegetarian dinners into your weekly plan, or eliminating meat from lunches, can positively impact your grocery bill.

  1. Get creative.

Too often, we head to the grocery store for a full shop when there is plenty of food still in our fridges! If your pantry and freezer are well-stocked—with beans, lentils, pasta, frozen veggies, etc.—you likely have what you need to squeeze out a few more meals. Similarly, if produce is starting to turn, look up some recipes to use it up.

What cost-saving tips would you add to this list? I’d love to hear!
