There are many tips and tricks to saving money when you do your groceries. Watching flyers, knowing prices, and buying in bulk are tried and true methods that work well for me.
Really though, the best way to save money on groceries is to eat what you buy. Seriously, it’s that simple.
Food waste is a serious problem in Canada. $31B of food is wasted each year, or about 40% of the food produced in the country. Break it down to your grocery bill, and the average Canadian household wastes $28 a week – that’s more than $1500 a year!
You want to save money on groceries? Eat what you buy!
That’s where the FoodSaver® system comes in!
FoodSaver® helps my food stay fresher, longer, giving me better quality food to eat over a longer period of time. I do my weekend grocery shop with the best of intentions, but by the time random activities and late work nights come into the mix, meal planning goes out the window in favour of a drive thru.
So I combine my grocery shopping hacks like buying in bulk when things that are on sale and then I preserve them longer by using the FoodSaver® vacuum sealing system.
This whole pork loin was $1/lb cheaper than the pre cut ones. I bought the whole loin, sliced it, and then dropped in a little honey dijon marinade. I can seal the individual pieces, or in family portion packs, so everything is easy to prepare for a quick dinner.
The other part of the FoodSaver® system that comes in handy for me are the Fresh Containers. These are great to lengthen the life of leftovers (I’m always down for leftovers for lunch the next day, or the day after) and they’re also perfect for fresh produce.
With the grate at the bottom of the container, air can flow around the produce more easily giving extra days to strawberries, tomatoes, and other things we don’t always use immediately.
There is a vacuum seal vale to connect to all existing FoodSaver® systems. They are crack, shatter, and stain resistant. They’re safe from microwave to dishwasher to freezer.
When you put it all together, the FoodSaver® system is the best way to save money on groceries.
