Part IV: How Much is it Gonna’ Cost Me?

This is the 4th in a series of 5 blog posts on grocery shopping.  Hope you find this information useful.

It seems that most newspaper articles and news stories are focused on one thing THE ECONOMY. And for good reason, most people have been affected by it. And if you haven’t noticed, eating at home can save you big bucks. That’s one great reason why you need to start shopping smarter. Here are my tips to saving on your food bill:
1.) Learn the layout of your grocery store. It is designed in such a way to facilitate excessive buying. Why else would milk be at the back of the store? But if you know your store’s layout, you won’t be tempted by unnecessary items as you wander around, searching for the chicken broth.
2.) Use your grocery list like a roadmap. Impulse buys seriously add up.
3.) Use the cost/unit pricing to determine the cheapest items. This is extremely fast and easy to do with online shopping. It’s one of the reasons I love it!
4.) Make trade-offs. There is added cost of “value-added” items such as pre-sliced and washed veggies, yogurt with added fiber, organic eggs with omega-3s.
5.) Check out my guide to Nutritious+Eating+on+a+Budget.pdf. I developed this handout for a nutrition lecture I gave here in Cambridge a couple of weeks ago. Some of the cheapest foods are the most nutritious: dried beans, peas, and lentils (cents per serving), potatoes, carrots, apples, and peanut butter. Some of the most expensive are animal products, particularly meat. 

I’d love to hear your tips to eating well for less.
