Buy oranges, onions, and potatoes etc. in bags rather than individually. You’ll pay about half.
Say No to Non Grocery Items
Usually you will find better proces on health and beauty items at mass-market retailers, like Target, Wamart etc. And you’ll find the best deals on paper products at warehouse clubs.
Opt for frozen seafood over fresh. Vacuum-packaged salmon, flounder, and tilapia fillets and bags of frozen shrimp cost 20 to 40 percent less than their counterparts at the fish counter. (If that sounds unappetizing, consider that most “fresh” fish has been previously frozen during transport.)
Buy in bulk
Go for ground beef and chicken breasts in bulk or family-size packages and you’ll save big: 20 percent on ground beef and 50 percent a pound on chicken.
Find out an item’s cost per unit (CPU). It’s listed on the shelf sticker next to the price. It will tell you what an item’s cost per pound or ounce is, which can keep you from getting hoodwinked by packaging.
