The US Department of Agriculture estimates that a family of two spends about $350 a month on groceries. (And that’s a thrifty budget!) We get it -- it’s hard to feed yourselves on a tight budget, especially if you want to eat well (we’re talking nutrients, not loads of Bagel Bites). While many of us are inspired by those tales of women extreme couponing (thanks, TLC), not all of us can put in the time and effort it takes to stockpile 87 bottles of ketchup and 70 boxes of microwave popcorn.
So we asked Jeanette Pavini, household savings expert for Coupons.com, to break down the easiest ways to save. If you put these tips to work, you can easily save $50 a month on groceries. (That’s $600 a year!)
