THIS WEEK'S SAVING GRACE

Grocery Hacks That Save You Money

It seems like food is getting more expensive by the day. Every time I go to the grocery store, I try to think of creative ways to help cut down the amount I spend.

I love diced ham and scrambled eggs, but a package of ready-diced ham is over $3, so I buy a package of Farmer John's Ham Slices for $1.98 and dice them up myself, put them in a freezer bag and into the freezer.  Same goes for crumbled sausage except that I cook the sausage first.

Perhaps my favorite grocery aisle is the bulk foods. There, I can buy as much or as little as I need of something at a significant discount over the same packaged items. This is especially true of spices. I always save old spice jars just for this purpose.

Name brands have given way to store brands for significant savings and very little difference in quality if any. One exception here is Tyson's Frozen Grilled Chicken Strips which I use in a myriad of way -- chopped up into salads or added to chicken broth and a package of frozen mixed veggies for quick chicken vegetable soup, added to pasta with a cream sauce -- the uses are almost endless.

I never throw away bread. If it becomes stale, I cube it, dry it, and place it in a plastic bag to use later for croutons, stuffing or bread crumbs.

I buy a large container of plain Greek yogurt. Ounce for ounce, it's a lot cheaper than buying eight, 4-ounce cups of yogurt. If I want it sweetened, I use sugar or artificial sweetener that I buy in the bulk food bins. For flavor I use applesauce, jam, granola, chocolate syrup, honey, or whatever sounds appealing.

Saving money on groceries is no longer just about clipping coupons or buying on sale, you also need to get creative to squeeze out the maximum savings.

Happy Savings,
