Best Tips to Save Money On Your Grocery Bill


Best Tips to Save Money On Your Grocery Bill

Looking to trim your grocery budget, without compromising on quality? Follow these smart tips and plan your grocery list ahead of time to save you precious dollars long-term.

Budget-friendly ideas to eat well for less

  • Substitute similar recipe items that are less expensive — for example, green peppers rather than red.
  • Get foods that are in season.
  • Choose less tender cuts of meat and tenderize them by braising, stewing, marinating or cutting them in strips and thin slices. Try cuts such as the outside round, inside round, short-rib roasts, sirloin blade and tip.
  • Always compare the prices of different cuts of meat or poultry. It is sometimes better to buy fowl whole and cut it into pieces yourself and keep the bones and trimmings to make into broths.
  • Reach for Merit Selection products at your Metro supermarket. They offer excellent bargains in terms of quality and price.
  • Turkey breasts, half-breasts, tournedos, cutlets, thighs and ground turkey are known for their affordability and versatility. Combined with marinades or sauces, they lend themselves to a great variety of recipes and can be prepared in many delicious ways!
