31 Ways To Save On Your Grocery Budget: Tip #21
TIP #21: TRY THE STORE BRAND VERSION OF PRODUCTS.
Without using coupons, it can sometimes be hard to get name brand items at a good price. They have to figure in their Marketing expenses along with that extra padding for the coupons they do distribute. When you buy store brand items, you are sometimes even get almost the exact same product, just with a different label.
I have been slowly testing out some store brands. Some I liked. Some I didn’t. My advice is to try them when they are on sale so you can get the best price in case it doesn’t match the quality you are looking for.
Some of the items I’ve liked are Canned Vegetables, Pastas, bread, etc. What have you tried and liked/disliked?
By veering from brand loyalty, you can get items for less and save money on your grocery budget.
