Ways to save your wallet and your health at the grocery store

Groceries are low and it’s time to head to the market to fill up on supplies. Though getting some things at the store already made may seem like a convenience, you can save money and even be healthier by avoiding certain things on the grocery store shelves.

  • Salad dressing

The whole point of eating salads is to eat healthy, but drowning your salad in store bought dressing is almost no better than just going to a fast food joint and getting yourself a burger. You can easily make your own dressing at home that are tasty and good for you.

  • Water bottles

Buying water bottles over and over each month are bad not just for your wallet, but for the environment too. Plus, who wants to carry all that weight from the cart to the car to your apartment/home! Save time and money, by investing in a reusable water bottle or a water purifier for your sink.

  • Name brands

There are some name brands that we all prefer and can really see a difference in, but certain things, like name brand spices are really just a rip off in disguise. Getting the off brand taste just as good while saving you a bit of cash.

  • Bottled teas

Teas seem like a healthy drink, and they are, if you make it yourself. However, many store brought bottled teas are filled with so much sugar that drinking them is worse than just drinking a soda. Buy tea packets and make tea yourself at home to have the pleasure of tea without all that added, unnecessary sugar.
