4 Easy Ways to Save Money on Groceries
4 Easy Ways to Save Money on Groceries

These simple tips from Irma M., department manager, grocery, Store 1916, Coconut Creek, Fla., can help you make the most of your food budget.

Make a Budget

When you set a spending limit, you’re more likely to stick to it. You’ll also be more mindful of what you’re purchasing.


Irma suggests using Walmart Pay, a feature of the Walmart app. “It keeps your receipts, and since you always have your phone, it’s great for keeping track of expenses,” she says.

Shop Private Brands

Walmart’s Private Brands offer quality products at affordable prices—from Equate medications to Great Value grocery items.


“Customers compare prices and usually choose Great Value,” says Irma.

Purchase In-Season Produce

When produce is in season, supply can be higher, which can mean lower prices. Therefore, you may spend less on fresh produce by buying what’s in-season.


“I save almost a dollar per pound on cherries when I buy them in season!” Irma says.

Look in the Right Places

Know where the clearance section is in your store, and be sure to scan the upper and lower shelves of each aisle, as the less-expensive items are frequently placed there.
