Save $$$ on Groceries

Tuesday, 22 August 2017

Rent, utilities, and other bills add up quick! Use these tips to say some money on your monthly grocery bills. To see the full list of tips: https://blog.rent.com/save-money-groceries/

 

Sign Up for Rebate Apps

While it may take you a little extra time when you get home, you can save a fortune by using rebate apps like Ibotta, Checkout 51 and BerryCart. Simply select the products that are eligible for a rebate using the app, scan the barcode on the product and then take a photo of your receipt.

Hot tip: Take a browse before you go shopping to get the maximum out of these handy little apps. Payment is usually via Paypal or gift cards.

Make a Meal Plan for the Week

If you’ve never done this before, getting started may seem difficult. However, once you’ve figured out what you already have on hand and what’s on sale, you can start putting the two together to make meals that will keep your belly full and your bank account happy. Additionally, having a plan of what you’re going to buy keeps you from going off the list, and spending extra cash you don’t really have.

Make Those Meals Pull Double Duty

Getting more familiar with using your leftovers or “upcycling” to an entirely different meal is familiar territory for those who like to save money on groceries. For example, that homemade spaghetti Bolognese can easily turn into a yummy pot of chili with the addition of a can of beans and some spices. Done with that chili? What about a round of burritos?  Even roasting a chicken on Sunday can see you getting at least 4 meals for your week. With a little creativity, you can slash your grocery bill in half.
