How to Reduce Your Grocery Store Bill

Everyone needs to know how to reduce your grocery store bill. There is no sense in spending extra money if you do not absolute have to spend it.

CLEANING SUPPLIES - Cleaning supplies are very expensive at the grocery store. You may want to try to purchase these items at a club store such as Sam's Club, Winco Foods or Costco.
You can also make your own cleaning supplies. Vinegar is one of the best cleaners. A large bottle of vinegar is cheaper than most cleaners. It can be use to clean the kitchen, bathroom and as a fabric softener in the laundry.

PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS - Personal care products add unnecessary dollars to our grocery store bill. You can check the prices at your local drug store, more often than not they are much cheaper. If they do not have what you need, you can also check the prices at the club stores.

MEDICINES - Over the counter medicines are always really expensive at the grocery store. They know they can charge you more for your night time cold medicine because they are the only place open at 11 pm. Save money and reduce your bill at the grocery store by planning ahead and stocking up on your favorite over the counter medicines at a club store, discount store or local drug store.

CANDY and TREATS - The cost of a candy bar at the grocery store is at least 30% more than at the drug store or a discount store such as Target. Buy your candy at the drug store, discount store or club store to save money.

I do not recommend buying all of your groceries at a large club store. You may end up buying much more than you need or can even use. Even at the club stores you need to check the prices to see if they compare.
