How to Save Money on Groceries, part 5

I think this will be my last post on this series.  There are more ways to save, for sure.  But there's gotta be an end, and this seems like a good place for me.

Learn from others

Don't try to do it yourself.  One of my favorite sayings is, "Learn from others' mistakes.  You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself."  I think you can flip that around, too.  "Learn from others' successes.  You can't possibly live long enough to excel in everything yourself."

There are lots of other websites out there that will help you save a buck or two in your grocery bill.  Here are some of my favorites:

  • Let Me Plan Dinner - She plans a weekly menu, grocery list (usually including the actual price she spent), and all of the recipes (including tips).  (Prices are specific to Utah Valley.)
  • 5 Dollar Dinners - Just like it sounds.  She has a recipe book, too.  (Though, that means she doesn't post all of her recipes.  She wants her book to sell, too.)
  • Budget Bytes - a bunch of recipes, price broken down by ingredient and per serving so you can see exactly how much everything costs.
Good luck with your grocery bill!
