iVillage: Ways to Save Money at the Supermarket

7 of 11

But Don't Get Snookered

Supermarkets have lots of wily ways to get you spend — including tempting "multiple buy" offers. “Many grocery stores will offer 10 for $10 specials, for example, but that doesn’t mean you have to buy ALL ten items to get the discount,” says Jackie Warrick, senior savings adviser at “Just buy the one or two items you specifically need, and you'll still get the savings benefits.” That said, sometimes there is a higher single item price or a “must buy x number” provision (usually somewhere small so you miss it) so it pays (literally) to be vigilant. Other forms of supermarket trickery include placing the most expensive items at eye level, and stocking end caps with “sales” that aren't. Sneaky stuff.
