But even if you’re buying most of your food at the grocery store, there’s a good chance you’re still spending more than necessary. That’s because you’re probably making mistakes while shopping at the supermarket.

Shopping on the Wrong Day

Cut grocery costs by simply shopping on the right day of the week. “We all get into a routine and often hit up our stores around the same time weekly,” said Tracie Fobes of Penny Pinchin’ Mom. “Make sure that you are shopping at the time when you can be certain to get every deal the store offers.”

It almost always encompasses a Friday and Saturday.
