Tip # 23 Shop at discount Grocery stores
Don't be afraid of discount grocery stores like Aldi (I was at one point in time, when I was a teenager and my mom would stop there). But now we shop there every week. I mostly just buy the basics (milk, eggs, bread, and often times fruits and veggies, and actually their $2.99 wine isn't too shabby either!) Aldi is a great alternative to save money on basic stuff that doesn't always (or ever) go on sale at the grocery store. Just make sure you follow Tip # 22 and clean and eat your produce asap.
