Frugal Grocery Shopping’s Compromise Hack
Tens of millions of Americans are facing a pandemic-driven tight budget, and it’s tempting to want to rein in spending.
A tried-and-true method for cutting down food expenditures is to set aside a fixed weekly amount and only pay cash for it.
According to Business Insider contributor Jen Glantz, doing so cut down her weekly grocery spend by roughly 25%.
Glantz says she planned her meals, clipped coupons, shopped mid-week to get the best specials, and ultimately put many items back on the shelf.
However, she found that shopping this way was time-consuming, tedious, inconvenient, and stressful.
Ultimately, she found the best compromise was to pay with her allotted amount of cash, but also allow herself a $25 weekly slush fund to be paid by card!
