Easy Ways to Save Money on Groceries
There are great ways to make easy family meals even more budget friendly.
For example, three of my favorite apps for saving money on groceries are Ibotta, Rakuten (formerly Ebates), and Fetch Rewards (use XGGVM to get 2,000 bonus points when you sign up!). They are an easy way to save money on groceries every time you shop.
For example, you can get $20 just for signing up with Ibotta (probably still my favorite grocery money saving app), and you also get a $20 bonus when you sign up for Rakuten. And you can even stack your savings by using Ibotta, Rakuten, and Fetch all to save money on the same shopping purchases!
You can also save more money when grocery shopping by taking advantage of the sales and discounted items, buying produce in season, buying less expensive cuts of meat, buying generic brands rather than more popular name brands, and more.
You can find tons of ideas for how to slash your food and grocery budget here.
An Easy Option for Meal Planning
If you are looking for an easy (and budget friendly!) solution for getting meals on the table, then a great solution for you is a service like $5 Meal Plans. $5 Meal Plans costs just $5 per month, and they do all of the planning for you!
They plan the meals you will eat and include the ingredients you will need to buy and the recipes you will need to follow to prepare them. Pretty cool! With $5 Meal Plans, the dinners themselves also cost less than $5 per meal to make! And the service comes with a 14-day free trial, so you have nothing to lose! If this sounds like a good option for your family, you can check out $5 Meal Plans here.
