Saving at the Supermarket

It looks like hubby and I will be back on a very strict budget. Thanks to Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert we can save mucho dollars at the supermarket if we follow his guidelines.

Know what you already have stocked in your pantry, freezer or fridge.

The departments at the market are run independently. You may find similar items in different departments at vastly different prices.

Buy frozen fish and meat.

Buy only durum-wheat semolina dried pasta.

Buy white eggs that are "certified humane" over more expensive cage-free brown eggs.

Try Select meat and tenderize.

Store brands are comparable to many other brands and often have money-back guarantees.

Instead of a costly cereal, consider buying a high-fiber store brand and adding your own sweeteners, fruit and nuts.
