Welcome to the second major series of posts on Frugal Made Fun! Each week, I'll post 1-2 tips on how to develop your own plan to save money on groceries. I'm going to start with some of the most basic, easiest things you can do to save money, and then progress from there. You can take as much or little advice as you like. As the series progresses, a little more work may be involved, but you will definitely save more money.
Pay attention to what is on sale that week. Most people should get the weekly ad in the mail (even if you don't have a subscription to your local paper). If you don't, almost all grocery stores post their weekly ads online. Simply peruse through the flyer before you go to the grocery store and make a mental note of what's on sale.
