Whip Your Grocery Budget Into Shape: Only buy things when they are on sale

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.

Only buy things when they are on sale - this takes patientce and discipline...this is why I put this toward the end of the series. If you use coupons, buy things when they are on sale, and buy enough to last you 6-8 week,s until the next sale, you will be set! Not to mention you will be saving a ton of money!

There are few things (if any) that I pay full price for. Almost everything we purchase (groceries, toiletries, household items) can be bought when they are on sale and stored until you need them.
