Food can be expensive, especially for healthy eating, but it doesn't have to be. Use these tips and tricks to reduce your grocery bill each week, and reap the benefits of healthy eating, while also saving cash for other things. Planning out your meals based on your current food stock and what's on sale that week is optimal, and can lead to massive savings.
The Meat Aisle
FACT: Mostly all the cash that you spend each week goes on meat that you purchase. This is one of the biggest changes you can make to lower your grocery bill.
Mostly all the cash that you spend each week goes on meat that you purchase. This is one of the biggest changes you can make to lower your grocery bill. Instead of having meat every night for dinner, try only having it a few times a week.
Cut back on the amount of meat that you purchase and consume by replacing it with beans. Beans are inexpensive, easy to prepare and can fill you just as much as meat does. You don’t have to go totally vegetarian though, just cut back on the amount you purchase.
Compare the prices of the items being sold in stores. Go for the bargains and go to multiple stores if you have to purchase items on sale.
TIP: Still packed with essential vitamins and minerals, frozen vegetables are also much more affordable. Save an average of $5 or more when switching to frozen from fresh.
However, keep in mind that if the stores are far away from one another, it might be best to stick with one store over three. Checking for these deals throughout the week, and shopping during them can save you money.
Use Frozen Instead Of Fresh
Still packed with essential vitamins and minerals, frozen vegetables are also much more affordable. Save an average of $5 or more when switching to frozen from fresh. They can also last longer.
Purchasing large bags, and only using them in halves or thirds, can make many more meals than one bag of fresh veggies. Fruits that are frozen are also just as tasty, easy to use and packed with nutrients.
If you don’t always have a bunch of time to make meals from scratch, making freezer meals can be a great way to save money on your grocery bill. Try taking one of your family's favourite recipes and see if it will work as a freezer meal.

Switch Your Beverages
Instead of purchasing overpriced juices, sodas and other drink items; have your family drink more water. Replace brand name beverages with off brands to save even more.
On average, making these switches can save $10 or more each week. Even bottled water is cheaper than choosing fruit juices and sodas, and much healthier.
