Super savings at the market
Julia Scott, aka Bargain Babe, knows all about saving at the supermarket.
Julia Scott, aka Bargain Babe, runs the fiscally savvy blog by the same name. We asked her to share tips on how to find savings down the supermarket aisles.
1)Go prepared. Shop with the weeks menu in mind, so you dont buy a lot of stuff you dont need.
2)Go full. If you shop on an empty stomach, youll make more impulse purchases.
3)Give yourself a food budget. And jot down the amount you spent later.
4)Stick to the top and lower shelves. Companies pay for premium, eye-level shelves, so foods lower down and higher up are usually cheaper.
5)Create a price list. Youll get a good idea of stores highs and lows, and youll be able to know where to go for everything you need.
