Remember, the best way to maximize your grocery savings is to buy items when they are the cheapest and buy enough to last you 12 weeks (or until the item price cycles to the lowest point again). Even if you don’t feel like you have time to clip coupons, pay attention to item prices and know when you’re purchasing them at their lowest price point. This alone can save you 50% at the cash register!

Happy savings!
