Our grocery expenses (toiletries, wet goods, canned goods, condiments) have the biggest percent in our budget
it takes around Php10,000 a week

make a proper budget. buy only what are necessary and basic needs.. Make a special list that you will carry upon entering at the grocery stores. You should have a strict self discipline. just my cent.... :boxing: :boxing: :boxing: :boxing:

In case it's too difficult to stick to the list, try not to shop with the kids and don't shop when you're hungry.

Bring exact amount on how much you plan to spend. If using cc, then dont use cc, the amount saved from budgeting is much bigger tha the points earned fr cc..

Eat healthy! Youll be surprised how much you save from not taking those chips and junk snacks...

any tips to reducing our grocery expenses?

subukan natin magbigay ng halimbawa

toiletries:
1. gumamit ng brand X, at hindi mamahaling brand ng sabon, shampoo, tootpaste at kung anu-ano pa.
2. gumamit ng towel instead of disposable tissue
wet goods:
1. poultry, fish and meat - bumili ng sapat para sa tamang konsumo sa pagkain tapos haluan na lang ng maraming gulay
2. mag-alaga ng hayop tulad ng manok na pwede sa bakuran (mahirap ito sa rural areas, :hihi: at patay tayo sa mga tiga-PETA)
canned goods:
1. kung stock para sa emergency tulad ng panahon ng bagyo o tag-ulan piliin yung bagong gawa lang (check expiration date)
2. huwag bumili ng mga de-lata na pang-araw-araw na pagkain. isa pa meron ka na binili na mga 'wet goods' so talagang imbak ito.
condiments:
1. bawasan ang paggamit ng asin sa pagkain
2. pwede naman na sigurong huwag gumamit ng 'magic sarap', vetsin (msg), etc..
3. magtanim ng mga herbal plants na pwedeng supplement na pampalasa sa pagkain at pwede kahit sa paso lang tulad ng sili, luya, atbp..

sipagan lang ng kaunti sa buhay... maging wais tulad ni Lumen. :D

at eto pinakamagandang TIP..

sipagan na lang ang paghanap ng madaming pera para meron pang-gastos at ng huwag ng mag-isip kung paano makatipid  :harhar:

Dont loiter around the supermarket. It will make you buy unnecessary things.

Buy in bulk.

Buy generic brands if you can/want.

Ako para maka menos, di na naggo grocery, dito na lang ako sa talipapa namin, mas malaki ang mura kesa grocery store. Di ko na rin kelangan gumastos ng space sa ref para sa mga karne at isda dahil buy when needed lang ako. Same with fruits and vegetables, di ako nabubulukan.

Off topic, hindi grocery ang malaking gastos for me, yung kain sa labas ang mas malaki, yan ang focus ng pagtitipiran ko.  :hello:

Use your SM Green Bag when shopping at SM Supermarket and Hypermart. Get 2 peso rebate for each bag.
Kung matiyaga ka, buy in small batches para makarami ng rebate!

Naggo grocery din ako pagnatapat na napunta kami sa mall para maglibang. Pero ito mga tinatandaan ko:

1. Una kong tinitingnan ang nga basic toiletries at household needs kung may promo, yung mga bundled items na kailangan ko ok yun, pero kung may buy 1 take 1, bumibili ako ng pang isang taon na supply agad, like, sabon, toothpaste, detergent, dishwashing liquid.

2. Kapag wala masyadong promo ang products, ang sunod na gawa ko ay tingin sa promo ng supermarket, may libre ba parking or items for certain amount of purchase? Kapag meron, hinahabol ko ito by buying things na binibili namin regularly, like delata, cheese, gatas, pasta, etc.

3. Kung may promo ang CC o Debit card, habol ko pa rin yan, minsan may libreng Jollibee, etc.

4. Swak pati lahat yan sa rewards card ko.

5. Pag may free samples, swak pa rin yan!

6. Sa gamot, binibili ko yung naka promo pack din, like 7+1 na vitamins, etc. Mas mura kaysa sa nakabote.

7. Ganun din sa shampoo, chicheria, biskwit, binibili ko yung naka sachet, mas mura kaysa sa malalaking packs.

8. Kulang nalang dun na rin ako kumain sa mga free taste  :hihi:

Dagdag pa pala boss.. kapag kumakain kami sa fastfood, nagpapadagdag ako ng ketsap, creamer at asukal palagi, para may pang uwi. yung sugar kung may brown, kuha rin, para may pang luto  :hihi:

 :yoohoo:

namamalengke ako once a month, poultry, red meats, isda. pag uwi ko sa bahay i linis at i papartition ko ito depende sa kaya namin kainin for a day. to make a it short parang ration ang dating, even sa bacon at hotdog. this way mas less ang wastage namin dahil hinde magluluto ng madami. natutunan ko ito sa nanay ko.
ngayon tinatamad na ako mamalengke dahil sa dumi at walang nag popolice ng kaayusan sa palengke. nag tatyaga na lang sa grocery maski na mas mahal per kilo ng dress chicken at least alam mo na malnis at walang daya ang kilohan.
