The Wise Shopper
at the Grocery Store
Grocery shopping can be very tiring. Walking back and forth down those isles will make you feel like you have run the marathon. The best thing to do is to get organized.
Join frequent shopper programs to get rebates that stores offer. Use store club cards, but be careful with store credit cards.  If the store offers a credit card with a discount, read the fine print. Store cards generally charge higher interest than regular credit cards, and if you are not sure you will be able to pay the balances, stay away from them.

Sometimes the quality of store brands is inferior, but if there is a considerable difference in price, it may be worth it to try them. Avoid buying by impulse.

Stick to your list unless you spot a real deal.  Remember that supermarket advertising and labels are specifically designed to lure you into buying things.

Try to spot eventual downsizing when it occurs. Sometimes the amount of product in the package is reduced by the manufacturer.
