Of all the things we spend money on, I think groceries are one of the biggest recurring expenses, and they are by far the biggest recurring expense that we can massively cut back on.
I’m constantly amazed by how there are literally endless numbers of tips floating around on the internet for how to save money on groceries!
Why are grocery money-saving tips so important you ask?
Well, here’s one: by implementing just a few tips at a time, we’ve literally cut our grocery budget from $40 a week seven years ago, when we were just a couple, to now, having two kids, inflated prices, and keeping our budget roughly the same.
That leaves a lot more money left for us to do the things we love – like going camping, and putting the kids into extra curricular activities like tumbling and music lessons (well, tumbling at least – we’re still looking for a music teacher).
And let’s not forget, for splurging on $4.50 pints of dairy-free ice cream occasionally because I feel bad for my ice-cream loving, but dairy-free son. Yeeahh.
It’s called discretionary spending. 😉
This is a kind of long list, so brace yourself.
