Everyone wants to eat healthy, delicious meals without spending too much money. With the rising cost of groceries, we’d all love to save a few dollars at the checkout line. Let’s talk about how you can save while still getting the foods you want to eat.

Here are some tips to help you stick to your shopping list and food budget:

 Create a shopping list based on what you plan to eat for the entire week. Always bring your list to the grocery store to help you stay on track.

 Take a look at what you have at home so that you don’t buy items you already have in your pantry or fridge before going shopping.

 Avoid going food shopping when you are hungry. You’ll be less likely to buy more than you need or choose unhealthy snacks and treats. Look for ways to save on your grocery bill:

 Check to see if your local grocer offers savings cards. If so, sign up, it’s no cost to you! You’ll receive weekly card saving specials.

 Be on the lookout for weekly flyer circulars mailed to you regularly or check store’s web sites. Take advantage of the coupons including those on the Internet!

 Look for promotions, special offers or buy one, get one free deals!

Remember that as a WIC customer, you are entitled to receive any store’s promotion, including buy one get one free deals and coupon discounts. Do you have any other ideas or suggestions to share? If so, we want to hear from you! After all, we all want to pay less, save more!
