These days most of us are eating at home, like my rescue dog Puccini and his friends here.
Let’s remember that making a list and planning menus before going to the store can save a huge amount of waste. Use these four tips to slash your grocery bill by up to 50%.
• Build your menu around what is on sale. Find the weekly deals in store mailers or online. Sales usually start on Wednesdays.
• Join the store's free loyalty program. This will save you the most money. You can also download their app.
• Find matching coupons to save more at sites like coupons.com and your favorite brands website.
• If a sale item you want is out of stock, ask for a rain check. That means when the item comes back in stock, you will get it at the sale price.
