The cost of groceries is at an all-time high, and it looks like high food prices are here to stay. As a result, many families are struggling to put food on the table while keeping their grocery bills in check.

Since food is essential and there’s not much we can do about rising prices, it’s more important than ever to shop for groceries as strategically as possible.

For some, that may mean shopping at multiple grocery stores to get the lowest possible price on every item.

If you don’t have many grocery stores near you, your strategy may involve choosing the retailer with the best prices of the week and making just one trip to save on gas.

    Thank you for posting these deals to save us money, every penny saved helps. I have found Aldi’s has great prices overall. Other places I shop to save money are The Grocery Outlet, Sam’s Club, the 99 Cent Store, and The Dollar Tree.

    Trader Joe’s has the cheapest eggs in my area. They were $1.79 for a dozen when I was there last week. Milk was reasonable priced too.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

    If you use 2 percent milk, you can save HALF the price. All milks are the same price, so mix 4 percent/whole milk half and half with water. I use filtered and boiled water (cooled) to be sure it’s clean and safe. I’ve been doing this for about a year now. I also only buy milk on sale and freeze enough to last until the next sale – usually every 3 weeks.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Such a great “hack,” Holly. Thanks for sharing how you make your own 2% milk and make it last! πŸ₯›πŸ€—

    • mona2

      But now you only have half the protein and calcium per serving.

      • Dee

        Exactly. You’re watering down the nutrition in the milk. I’ll save on a lot of things, but I’m not going to shortchange the natural nutrition in a product.

  8. Ashlie

    great post! Yes, definitely varies by region. I will say my Aldi has had white bread for 50Β’ a loaf for maybe 6+ months now!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the kind comment about the post, Ashlie. πŸ’• Sure appreciate the heads up on the bread pricing at your Aldi location – that’s an amazing deal! πŸžπŸ€—

    I would love it if you could expand on this to include organic, gluten free, and keto foods. I have to eat differently and especially need good deals! We also use Kerrygold butter so I am ALWAYS seeking a good deal for stocking up on it.

    I love this because I’m always looking for the best grocery prices. I can share that, yesterday, in MN, I bought butter at Kwik Trip. $2.99 per pound, plus there was a 50 cents off coupon in app, and I got 5% more off by using the Kwik Trip debit card. It’s the cheapest I’ve seen butter!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      WOW! Nice score on butter near you, Angie. πŸ§ˆπŸŽ‰ Glad to know you enjoy these grocery posts. πŸ’•

      The sale is through next Wednesday. Rouses ads are 8 days long, which means double ads on Wednesdays.

      Great deal, Sara! Thanks so much for sharing about this sale near you. πŸ€—

      Rouses also has 4lb bags of store brand sugar for $2.88.
