29 Ways to Cut your Bill at the Grocery Store…

One grocery item is priced high, one is priced low. Which item presents the best deal and how can you make your grocery budget stretch? First, you must figure out an amount that you want to spend for the month and divide that into how often you go grocery shopping. How often is the best? Will you go daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly? Keep in mind that the more often you have to go to the store, the more expensive  those trips become because of the time / gas involved.
