Buying food is an inevitable aspect of life. Whether you visit the grocery store once a month, once a week, or daily, it is helpful to be aware of ways to save. Sunset Bank wants to help you reach financial success and here we have provided six simple ways to save.
Buy Local and Fresh- Fall has arrived and it is the perfect time to take advantage of farmers markets. Produce is locally grown and has little to no packaging. The middle man has been eliminated and you are sure to save while providing your family with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Shop On a Full Stomach- It is hard to walk down an isle of a grocery store on an empty stomach and not be tempted by everything in sight. Make sure you are satisfied before entering a store to avoid unnecessary purchases.
Watch Package Size- Many companies have decreased package size while maintaining the same price. Be sure to check the amount listed and decide if the product is worth the cost.
Clip Coupons- Find coupons online or in your newspaper for a simple way to save. With a little time and effort, you can make small savings add up. Keep your eye on generic brands that offer a lower price for essentially the same product.
Check Receipts- No matter how carefully you watch the cashier; something may have gotten charged twice or skipped. It never hurts to double check and ensure you are getting the best deal possible.
Grocery shopping is done so frequently that many have adopted habits that may be costing them. We hope you take a moment to reconsider your routine and practice smart financial habits. Sunset Bank values you and your money and we hope to help you reach your financial goals!
