How-to save money on groceries
Use this shopping guide and tips to find hidden deals at the grocery store so you'll get more for less.
Save in the dairy aisleStrain your own yogurt. Greek yogurt is delicious, but it can be pricey. Put regular yogurt in a cheesecloth-lined sieve; chill overnight. The next day you’ll have creamy, rich Greek-style yogurt at a fraction of the cost.
Make ends meet. Look for leftover cheese ends (or ask at the deli counter). Most grocery stores sell them at a discount. Use the pieces to make a delicious sauce for broccoli or to liven up your favorite mac and cheese recipe.
Skip buttermilk. Don’t buy buttermilk if you need only 1 cup. Instead, mix 1 cup milk with 1 tablespoon lemon juice, shake, and you’re all set!
