Save money by making a grocery list ahead of time and sticking to it when you’re in the store! Studies show that from 20% to 70% of the groceries people buy are not planned, and those costs add up! Food companies compete for your dollars. Sometimes they even pay grocery stores to put their products in prime places such as at eye level or at the end of the aisles, where they can make the most money. So check out the higher and lower shelves to compare prices of the foods on your list. If you want to buy a few extras that aren’t on your list, set a dollar limit and stay within it. Use your list and spend smart!
