There are times when buying your groceries in bulk will get you even deeper discounts. Our store often has a better markdown when you buy five or 10 of the same item. We’ve seen cereal at $2.50 with an additional buck off each box if you buy three. This brings the discount to $1.50 per box or a total savings of $4.50 on all three. Look for these bulk discounts on items you would normally buy and then stockpile them for future use.
Be selective about organic items
You might love the idea of feeding your kids only organic foods but they cost much more than their conventional counterparts. In fact, a Consumer Report study in 2015 discovered that organic foods, on the average, cost 47% more than conventional foods. Given this, you need to be selective about which ones you buy. You might choose to buy organic milk because you don't want your children drinking milk from cows that were subjected to antibiotics and hormones. You might also decide to buy organic chicken, organic eggs and organic vegetables – but only when they’re on sale. And you might choose to buy organic versus foods that are high in pesticides. The Environmental Working Group has a list of what it calls the Dirty Dozen fruits and vegetables. Apples and strawberries are currently on the top of this list so this is a case where you might want to spend the extra money for organic.
Following is a video that explains which organic fruits and vegetables are healthier for you and, thus, worth their extra cost.
