We cut coupons to save money at the grocery store. We shop the sales. We set up grocery budgets and shop with cash envelopes to save money. We bulk buy and stick to generic goods to save money. We try our hardest to make our hard earned money work the best for us at the grocery store.

Freezer Storage Supplies:
With this list my freezer will be full in no time. Think of all the money you can save. Buy the items on sale or in bulk, divide them up and freeze them. We regularly freeze fruits, vegetables, meats and bread products. In my freezer I have a bag labelled soup stock that I add vegetable scraps to for bone broths and soups.
I love having an extra freezer for food storage and the money it saves us. Buying items in bulk or on sale or preparing freezer meals. All of it, divide it up and freeze it – you will save money.
