iVillage: Ways to Save Money at the Supermarket

6 of 11

Shop the Sales... And Stock Up, Up, Up

Before you squeeze even one melon, peruse your store’s circular to see what’s cheap that week. “The number one way to save money on groceries is to buy what you’ll eventually need when it's on sale, instead of waiting until you’re out of the product and have to pay full price,” says Teri Gault, founder and CEO of The Grocery Game. Stores use sales as loss leaders, taking a hit on certain items to lure you into buying the rest of your groceries at full price. Smart shoppers stick to what’s on sale and stock up instead. “That’s a simple tip, but many people don’t know how to take advantage of it,” says Hancock. It’s not about hoarding and extreme shopping. It’s simply about purchasing enough of what your family regularly uses and eats when it is on sale at its lowest price. “This way, you have it ‘in stock’ until it goes on sale again,” she says.
