Stores are busiest on the weekends. Often they will discount items they did not sell enough of. Many stores start new sales on Wednesdays.
3. Bulk Wisely
Dehydrate, can, and freeze fresh items

Watch for trends, talk to stockers, know where they put clearance items.

Food addictions cause an extra expense of keeping junk foods in supply or the drive-by feasting at restaurants.
16. Write a Plan
Have a grocery list and try to stick to it. Be willing to shift the plan by what deals you find at the store.
17. Pray Expectantly
As you write your list and as you walk in the store's door, start the conversation with the Lord: Lord, you know the needs of my family, the desires of my heart, to serve you well for as long as you allow.
18. Be Willing to Trade for Food
Buy in bulk to share and trade when you find a good deal.

Choose wisely where you put your trust. The only free gift is the gift of salvation. The government offers ‘free’ but is always attached with strings.
20. No Paper Products
These throwaway products are expensive and a waste of money. Use cloth napkins and real plates and silverware.
21. Wash Zip-Lock Bags
Unless the bag was used for meat or cheese the bag can be washed and used more than once.
