With food prices likely to rise all year, it’s more important than ever that you go to food stores with a shopping list and a plan. Impulse buys will cost you dearly these days. It’s time to be a smart shopper.
I look at weekly food stores ads each Wednesday when they come out, to see what’s on sale. I then create heart-healthy recipes based on those sales. My goal — save 25% or more off supermarket normal prices by shopping only sales. I want to see something taken off each item I carry out of the store. And usually, I do.
Here are some examples of my recent receipts from local Jewel stores, a supermarket chain owned by Albertson’s. I have their shopping app on my phone, a must to get digital deals, and so get emailed copies of my receipts.
You can see my total percentage savings on two of these. On the others, how much I saved on each item I bought. Smart Shopping everyone!
