A few months ago my wife and I moved about 1.2 miles from a rented condo into a house of our own. We stayed in the same zip code, so we figured moving our utilities to our new address would be simple and straightforward. Not surprisingly, the only place we ran into problems was with Comcast. After we got our service moved, our bill went up 50%! Obviously, this was not right, so we made a few phone calls.
If there is one necessity in our budget that we absolutely can’t live without, it is food. While it is easy to skip out on restaurants and coffee shop visits, cutting grocery bills can be a big challenge even for the most budget-minded planners. If you are looking to cut your budget at the supermarket, here are some strategies to get you started.
Anyone who has been to the grocery store lately can attest to how difficult it has become to stretch a grocery budget. There are numerous reasons behind it, but most point back to the drought last year and we’re now starting to see the effects of it when it comes to our final grocery bill. While many people already use coupons and know about matching prices, my wife and I have implemented a few more ways to help us stretch our grocery budget further.
