Often I get asked, how I save so much on groceries and what's the one method that saves me the most.
Lots of people assume it's coupons or maybe price matching-surprisingly, it's neither of those things.
The #1 tip that will save you the most is knowing your prices and shopping the sales.
I want to show you an example that I spotted today, while in London Drugs.
60 dishwasher tabs for $13.99 or...
54 tabs for $7.99.
So let's figure out the per tab cost - 60 tab container means your paying .23 cents per load
54 tab container means your paying .15 cents a load
Always, always, always check your prices. Keep track of prices on the items you buy most, even if it's just in your phone.
I always break down prices per load or serving since one product can come in so many different sizes.
When I find the lowest price that I've seen in a few months, on an item, I stock up.
I found a clearance deal on Quantum dishtabs at Target a few months ago, for .3 cents a load.
You can bet I stocked up and bought enough to last 2 years.
I normally would not buy that many, since my stock room is only a few shelves, but for that price - I did.
Start by keeping track of your most expensive weekly purchases and become an expert in spotting sales, I promise you - it will pay off!
