Weekly Grocery Haul – 3 Brilliant Grocery Shopping Tips to Save You The Most Money Fast

One of my biggest grocery shopping tips is to start weekly with meal planning and work your way up to monthly meal planning. A part of monthly meal planning is that I only do one giant grocery haul every month!

 3 Grocery Shopping Tips and you won’t spend more than 15 minutes on your next grocery shopping trip! These tips will teach you the essentials for grocery shopping on a budget and how to save the money on groceries.

I have an in depth guide to meal planning that includes a FREE PRINTABLE Meal Planning on a Budget Toolkit or you can simply sign up below to get it emailed to you!

That’s right! I buy almost the ENTIRE month’s worth of groceries in just a few hours in one morning. This grocery haul usually takes me about 2-3 hours. When I say “almost”, I buy everything that I need for the month’s food that can either sit on the shelf for 30 days or can be frozen.


How Weekly Grocery Shopping Works

So all that leaves out is fresh produce and milk. We definitely need fresh produce in our diets! One of my grocery shopping tips that solves that problem is to do a super quick weekly mini grocery shopping trip!

My second tip is to make this weekly grocery shopping trip is strictly only for fresh produce and milk. We have a weekly budget of $25 and the shopping trip usually doesn’t take longer than 15 minutes from the time I leave my car to the time I return!


Maximize the Savings!

My third tip, and one of my favorite grocery shopping tips, is to stack the savings! I to this big time with my monthly grocery haul but it applies weekly as well! It’s so easy to stack sales with grocery rebates!

No mom has the time to spend continuously scanning apps looking for the best rebate offers and sales. Which is why I have minimized my rebate strategy to help maximize my savings in the smallest amount of time.

My very favorite app to us is Ibotta! I have done an entire tutorial on how to use the app to maximize your savings. But in a nutshell this is how I do it, I do my normal grocery shopping first.

Then once I get all my groceries home, I will quickly open the app and search the two stores that I just went shopping at to see if there are any rebates that apply to my groceries. There are usually 3-4 that I can claim. This saves me around $5 each time I use the app.

If that doesn’t sound like much, trust me! The three minutes that it takes me to save $5 is 100% worth it! These small savings add up quick and once you hit $20 you can cash out in PayPal or Venmo, or choose from a bunch of really awesome gift cards! I usually choose Target and treat myself to a well deserved “mom’s only” snack!

If you are new to Ibotta, sign up using this link or the code: qybjrj and you will automatically get $10 after you claim your first rebate! So easy!


Weekly Grocery Haul

Every month I share my monthly meal plan and grocery haul but I get asked all the time to see what my weekly grocery haul looks like.

Since we are moving next month, I will not be doing a meal plan or giant grocery haul. So I thought is was the perfect time to show you what my weekly haul looks like!

Don’t worry! We are still eating and sticking to our budget while moving! I have about 15 freezer meals ready to go, plus we have budgeted about $150 to feed us all the other nights that we aren’t eating freezer meals.
