Save Money on Quick & Easy Meals
I always get asked about how to save money at the grocery store. I am a big believer in stacking the savings and stocking up when there is a sale. When you are looking at your local grocery store weekly circulars, you will want to take note of any specials sales and promotions. You will also want to take note of which products you want to buy and look for coupons on those items as well.
To give you an example, there is an in-store promotional offer at your local Stop and Shop, Giant Carlisle or Giant Landover starting 9/9/2016 and running through 9/15/2016. The promotion is buy $20 of participating Tyson® frozen fully cooked chicken, Jimmy Dean® frozen breakfast and Sara Lee® frozen dessert items and save $5 off instantly.
When deals like this come along, I check which items are going to be included in the promotion, and then I try and work out the best deal on the products I like the most.
The promotion mentioned above includes Jimmy Dean breakfast croissants, Tyson frozen fully cooked chicken nuggets, Tyson frozen fully cooked chicken strips, Tyson Any’tizers® snacks, and Sara Lee cheesecake. Since I like the cooked chicken strips which are made with 100% all natural ingredients, all white meat and no added hormones or steroids, and my significant other loves cheesecake (made with real cream cheese). I would include both of them in my transaction until I reached the $20 minimum to save the additional $5. I would also look for coupons to bring down my total cost while still reaching the $20 minimum. I may even throw in a bag of the Tyson Any’tizers for a full-flavored snack when I need it.
If your kids love chicken nuggets, you may want to stock up on the Tyson frozen fully cooked chicken nuggets; they are also made with 100% all natural ingredients and white meat chicken from chickens that are raised with no added hormones or steroids. Or you can stock up the Jimmy Dean breakfast croissants which can be ready in 3 minutes or less for a quick and easy breakfast when you are in a rush.
Whatever products from the promotion you choose, you will want to stock up on as many as possible. Just don’t be like me and buy way too many that you cannot fit them in your freezer (yes I have done this a few times).
So let’s review the steps I use to save at the grocery store:
1. Look for sales and promotions in the circular for your local grocery stores. You can check out the digital versions of the weekly ad as well. Check out Stop and Shop and Giant weekly circulars online to save yourself time.
2. Look for items you want to buy and find coupons for them to bring down the price even further.
3. Stock up on items that have a long expiration date or that you will use before they expire. If you find that you are always stocking up, you may want to invest in a small standalone freezer to be able to save even more when great deals like this come along.
How do you save on your groceries? Have you tried any of these products? What do you think?
