Lean Up Your Grocery Bill

Well, after a long hiatus, I am blogging again.  And eating healthy!  I ran across this internet article about saving at the grocery store and I like its "basic foods" approach.

Here are 5 tips for saving money:
  1. Make a grocery list and check it twice.
  2. Stop clipping worthless coupons.
  3. Watch the price scanner.
  4. Buy generic over brand names.
  5. Skip the cans, buy dried beans in bulk.
I can attest to these tips.  Also, watch out at the bulk stores like Costco and Sam's Club.  Do you really need 5 pounds of biscotti?

Check out the entire article HERE.
