Eat And Save!
If you didn’t have to eat you would be rich, so the saying goes. Humans spend thousands on food every year. Some spend more than others. Certain people have a certain flair for food, and care more about it than everyone else. Others don’t really have the passion. Yet there are still ways to eat well and save your money. It does not always have to be one of the other. Whether it means cookies, or some form of meat, there are often certain ways to make the most of specific situations and get what you want. You may have even considered these tips already. If not though give some of them a try. You could find yourself still eating well while saving some money.
One of the best tips around is that of buying in bulk. If you see something you like, then buy a lot of it. Take a leaf out of your local restaurants book. How do you think they make money? They buy wholesale at a lower price and in doing so make a larger profit. Sure, you may not eat it all at once, but put it aside. There are all kinds of ways you can preserve the items too, you could use vacuum sealer bags for food or simply toss it into the freezer. Then it is therefore whenever you need it. Meat is great when bought wholesale. As it pasta and other forms of carb. The only thing that isn’t is vegetables because they are best enjoyed fresh.
Who says you have to buy local. Get online. You may find there are dozens of countries selling food products that are cheaper than what you currently pay. Especially when bought in bulk. Some people don’t trust food from abroad, but even after shipping it will cost less. You can do a little bit of research on each company before you purchase to ensure the food is of the right quality and then you will have what you need for a cheaper price. Quality isn’t always dictated by where it is from.
If you have a panache for saving money on food then you could up your coupon game. You can sign up to many different coupon sites and find the best deals out there. You can use E-vouchers in online stores or you can use paper based ones which you can print off or sign up to and receive in the post. The trick here is being careful when using store specific ones. You need to make sure you don’t get suckered into buying something that you would not normally buy. If you do that you have lost the game. Switch and swap the places you shop, ensuring you take advantage of store offers like half price and such. Only buy swapping stores can you see each offer. Bulk buy these where possible and where you see an opportunity for something you generally like. The superstores use many tactics against you, be vigilant and only spend on what you want and need don’t be pulled in. A list is a great shield against this.
