They can because they think they can. –Virgil
You’ve decided you want to start lowering your grocery bill, but you keep making excuses. And quite frankly, you’re not sure it’s possible.
First of all, you need to put your attitude in check, leave your excuses at the door and commit to make a change. Perhaps your family has dietary restraints or you eat only organic or you live in the middle of nowhere. It is my belief that anyone can lower their grocery bill. After all, spending only $10 less on your weekly shopping trip still saves you $520 a year!
The grocery budget is one area of the budget that can be quite easy to manipulate, with a bit of effort. It’s much harder to reduce a mortgage payment or a hydro bill, in my opinion.
But, lowering your grocery bill will not happen if you’re not willing to make it happen.
Over the next month or so, I’ll be doing a series of posts with my tips on how you can trim your grocery bill. Since I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t get a bit of a thrill from saving money I think you might find the posts quite useful! I promise though, what I share won’t be difficult to learn. Many of you probably put some of my tips to use already! My plan is to share two posts a week, most likely Wednesday’s and Friday’s.
One final thought for today: Ultimately, it really isn’t about how much you save but how much you spend.
