10 Tips for Grocery Shopping on a Budget

Don't Shop While Hungry

It seems like such obvious advice, but a great way to save money at the grocery store is to make sure you don't shop while hungry. If you do, suddenly everything you see becomes something you need or want.

Items that are not on your list will end up in your cart, and you may not even use them once you're home and no longer hungry. If you go to the grocery store with a satisfied, full stomach, you won't be as tempted by items you wouldn't normally buy, and you'll ultimately save money.
