3 tips to save money on your shopping list
According to Statistics Canada, food expenditures now account for 10% of Canadians’ total average expenditures. With such a large part of household budgets going toward groceries and staple food prices increasing, Canadian consumers must learn to curb their food spending habits or find ways to save money on their everyday grocery purchases.
One useful website is helping Canadians do just that: SaleWhale.ca. On SaleWhale.ca, Canadians can save between 30% to 70% (or more!) on their everyday grocery purchases by searching the Canadian weekly grocery flyers of all the major grocery store chains and finding the products that they need on sale. In this manner, Canadian consumers can make sure to buy their groceries only when they’re on sale, and save money.
1. Browse flyers and compare local grocery stores
Each week, grocery stores release flyers revealing what products are on special or deals being offered in store. Check out what’s available in your area; if they don’t have it at your usual food store, they might have it at another one nearby. This will help you find all the products you need at the lowest possible price.
2. Make a grocery shopping list and stick to it
Impulse purchases are more likely to occur when you don’t know what you’re looking for, and last-minute runs to the corner store to pick up forgotten items are inconvenient and more expensive. Planning your grocery shopping by keeping a grocery list of items you need on your refrigerator can save you time and money.
3. Buy your grocery products when they’re on special
Every week, you purchase milk, cereal, and carrots; make sure you buy them when they’re on sale. If they’re products that don’t spoil, consider stocking up on them when the deal is exceptional.
Well, there you have it: Canadian consumers are looking for ways to save money on their everyday grocery shopping and now they have a tool that empowers them to do exactly that, available for free at www.salewhale.ca.
Never miss another grocery product sale again: set up a shopping list to manage your grocery shopping, and set up alerts to be notified when the products you’re looking for are on sale at your favourite grocery stores.
