Planning Pays Off

Being a smart shopper takes a little planning, but the payoff can be big. To maximize savings, use store ads to plan nutrient-rich meals. Next, look for coupons in the newspaper or online to use when buying the sale items. Most importantly, try to stick to the list and avoid impulsive buying. Also watch how much money you spend for food at locations other than the grocery store. Almost half of the American food dollar is spent outside of the home, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
