5 grocery store aisles to avoid if you want to save money — the financial diet

Welcome to a column from The Financial Diet, one of our very favorite sites, dedicated to money and everything it touches. One of the best ways to take charge of your financial life is through food and cooking.

When it comes to grocery shopping on a budget, there isn't one "right" or "wrong" way to do it. We all have different dietary needs, and a life spent eschewing all of our wants — especially the food-related ones — wouldn't be a very interesting one. So we figure out whatever works for us: clipping coupons, buying in bulk, perusing the sale produce that's on its last leg.

No matter what you choose, there are dozens of ways to shop strategically.

8 little habits that save me big at the grocery store

One of the best ways to take charge of your financial life is through food and cooking. This column from TFD founders Chelsea Fagan and Lauren Ver Hage will help you be better with money, thanks to the kitchen.
I love grocery shopping. I have an almost-comically large and well-stocked Fairway about a 15-minute walk from my apartment, and I can easily lose three hours wandering its aisles, shivering in its enormous refrigerated room, and marveling at the giant wall of pickles and olives. I don't just love to grocery shop because I love to cook (which I very much do) — I love to grocery shop because to me it is the perfect diversion. It's mindless but useful, it's full

I've been trying to get better about how I grocery shop for a while now, and although I know the eventual solution will probably be "order a lot of my stuff online and make store trips only occasionally," for some reason I'm just not doing it yet. The truth is, because I work at home a lot, going to the store is often a good opportunity for me to get out of the house and have something to do. Ye

our 10 best tips for saving money at the grocery store

You don't need us to tell you how easy it is to spend a ton of money at the grocery store. (How is it possible to run in for five things and end up spending an hour in there? And $120?) Instead, we like to give you some pointers on how to spend less. We've given you a lot of advice over the years (here's some! And here's some more!) — and these are our 10 best tips of all time.

A recent shop at the grocery store revealed some upsetting truths about myself. First of all, I realized that I truly hate grocery shopping; it is boring and borderline stressful. Second of all, I realized that the cardinal rule of grocery shopping — don't go grocery shopping when you're hungry — certainly holds true.
It is one of the quickest and easiest money-saving tips people will give you.

Craving a long-term relationship? Date your local grocery store. They're a cheaper date than you'd think.

For me, it's been a couple months of ups and downs with the mecca for 20-somethings that is Trader Joe's. They had me at feta cream cheese dip, and I've never looked back since.

Hopeless romantic jokes aside, by "date" I mean invest time and energy into your weekly grocery trips. Go in with a list, but be ready to change it up. Talk to the person serving wine and cheese samples about more than wine and ch

The other day in our TFD chat, we collectively reached the conclusion that the three of us — Maya, Chelsea, Lauren — have been able to curb and be smarter in our spending pretty much everywhere besides food shopping. And even when we've done our best to restrict how much we go out, and to be smarter when we actually go to bars and restaurants, the grocery store is still ground zero for terrible

I have a tendency to get a bit obsessed with my budget sometimes. I review expenses to see where I can try to cut back a bit, and am a sucker for all the silly hacks on social media that promise to help me live my best, most efficient life. However, at some point these tips, tricks, and rules become counterproductive, and start to cost me both time and money.

10 ways to save money on groceries without clipping a single coupon

Paper or plastic? Once upon a time that was a standard question asked at the grocery store check stand. Today not only have paper and plastic bags given way to reusable tote bags, but also the way we pay and save at the grocery store has evolved.
Whereas our grandparents might have paid in physical dollars and cents — and handed over a fistful of paper coupons as well — today we can zip through the grocery store via the magic of plastic cards and contactless payment.
We can also save some grocery dollars without clipping a single coupon. Consider these tricks to help lower your grocery bill.

I have a confession to make: I've spent a lot of money in the last month. Don't get me wrong — I don't regret anything holiday-related that I've spent money on so far. I also doubt I'll regret the things I've spent money on but that haven't happened yet, like going to a holiday concert with a friend, taking my parents to an upcoming light show at the local botanical gardens, or buying a plane ticket to see family at Christmas.

These are all things I planne

Welcome to a column from The Financial Diet, one of our very favorite sites, dedicated to money and everything it touches. One of the best ways to take charge of your financial life is through food and cooking. A version of this post originally appeared on The Financial Diet.

In 2017, I'd originally planned to spend about $217 a month on groceries and $33 a month on restaurants, coffee, and alcohol so that my food spending for the year would come out to just under $3,000. My chief concern was making sure my restaurant spending stayed under control.

Let's cut right to the chase: Technically, I failed. I'd like to think my failure came down to a single store run for snacks. I had an introvert's New Year's Eve planned: me, a video game, and food. In theory, it was a cheap way to spend t

the best stocking stuffers to get from any grocery store — stocking stuffers

You'll probably be making more than a few trips to the grocery store over the next few weeks to pick up food, libations, and cold medicine. While you're there, consider browsing the aisles to pick up a few stocking stuffers. They are a particularly good place to pick up very practical items that people will actually use, not just fun tchotchkes in cute packaging.

Here are just a few of the great stocking stuffers you can get at any grocery store.

As someone who has lived away from her parents for less than a year, I'm still trying to get into the groove of being in charge of all the responsibilities that were never really mine when I lived at home. Grocery shopping is probably the biggest one.

If you are someone who cares a lot about sticking to a frugal budget — and frankly, everyone should — it can feel really easy to scoff at Whole Foods (or "Whole Paycheck," as my mother likes to call it) as a concept. Yes, it's a rather expensive store, and yes, they often stock items so ludicrously unnecessary and laser-targeted on bougie hipsters that it can feel like one big practical joke (I'm looking at you, asparagus water), but there is a lot of good to

11 budget shopping tips from people who hate grocery shopping — shopping

Usually I tell people that the reason I don't like to grocery shop is because I have four small children.

And that's true! Taking them all to the grocery store, unbuckling them from the car, sprinting through the aisles before anyone has a meltdown, deflecting requests for the most random of items, and then getting all the food and all the children safely back home is not exactly a spa day.

It's easy to consider your grocery budget non-negotiable. (After all, you have to eat, don't you?)

When we explore personal finance and living below our means, we consider which expenses are necessary and which are discretionary. It's easy to identify our Netflix subscription, dinners with friends, and facials as discretionary. Without them we'd survive, but they give our lives that extra bit of luxury or fun that makes everything better.

And when it comes to necessary expenses, it's easy to list housing, groceries, and clothing. While it's important to scrutinize your discretionary expenses to see if there a

When's the last time you really thought about what you spend on food? Maybe you wing it and just buy everything that's on sale that week. Or maybe you set a grocery budget years ago, but haven't adjusted it, despite the fact that your life has changed drastically. Or maybe you don't even remember the last time you made a grocery list.
Food spending obviously varies; a particularly enthusiastic home cook may prioritize expensive meats, while someone who sees f

the best way to explore a new city is with kombucha

One of my favorite things to do when I travel around the United States is visit a local grocery store. While grocery shopping in New York — my home — feels like a chore at times, heading to the grocery store in another city feels like a treat. You can learn a lot about a place from how they stock their grocery store. I love walking the aisles and seeing the variety of produce, the different ice cream pints and gallons, and the specialty local sections (if they have them).
There's always one section I seek out at the grocery store, however, whenever I visit a place. The cheese aisle is great, but it doesn't have anything on this. It doesn't matter if it's a big city like LA, or a small town like Roseau, Minnesota — there's always something a little exciting or interesting about this one se

There are a ton of grocery apps out there, claiming to save you time and money. Unfortunately, most of them (like a lot of apps) aren't actually worth the time it takes to figure them out or the money it costs to use them.
There is one, however, that is super easy and convenient to use — and it's free! It's called Flipp and you should download it ASAP.

The Subscribe & Save function is the mega marketplace's solution to a digital grocery list, except instead of writing down (or remembering) everything you need to buy before your next trip to the store, you sign up for items you know you'll need - and use regularly - ahead of time, like toilet paper or coffee pods, for instance.

kids' grocery shopping carts should be banned

If I could change one thing about the grocery store experience, I'd eliminate those tiny carts for kids. Not that anyone asked me, but they're a menace. Much like full-size carts, they block entire aisles, their wheels stick, or they just get too full. These things are frustrating to an adult, so why do we expect children to be calm in the face of such adversity? Grocery shopping with small children can be tough, but it has to be done. I don't expect anyone to get a sitter just to pop out to the store, and I'm nothing but thankful that my children are older now and handle themselves in the grocery store like adults. Parents with young kids: My heart goes out to you and I'm on your side, but those little carts cause more problems than they solve.
I like grocery shopping. Checking items off

5 money-saving tips from a coupon clipper

If you've ever seen that coupon-based reality TV show, you know that couponers can do some crazy stuff. I wasn't — and am not — one of those couponers, but I was pretty close.
Our family was deep in debt, and I'd heard that you could save a boatload of money if you started couponing. So, I clipped like crazy, shopped the sales, and built a stockpile of the items that were most prevalent among coupons at the time, such as paper goods, toothpaste, frozen entrees, and boxed cereal. It very nearly took over my life and I also purchased more processed foods than I care to admit.
Since then, I've calmed down and cleaned up our diet significantly. You won't see much in the way of frozen chicken nuggets or boxed cereal crowding my kitchen. But I still use coupons to save money at the grocery sto

my favorite way to keep track of my grocery list

For quite a while, I was a huge fan of grocery list apps — they save paper, make it easy to add items as soon as you remember them, and are simple to share with other household members. But at a certain point I realized one unavoidable fact: I hate fiddling with and staring at my phone while I shop.
So I gave up my high-tech habits and returned to the low-fi, totally nerdy grocery list template I created during my pre-smartphone days. And you know what? It's awesome.
I created this list in Word years ago and have been updating it as needed ever since. Because my husband and I do most of our non-farmers market shopping at a local Trader Joe's, this list includes the items we commonly buy there and is organized so it follows the order in which we move through the store. We rarely forget an
