Homenavarrow Saving money on groceries

Keep track of your household product inventory

How times have you gone grocery shopping and picked up two packages of toilet paper when you really should've gotten to packages of paper towels instead? Household products such as cleaners, toiletries, and essentials are things that are often missed off of grocery list and often result in having too much of one thing and not enough of another.

One way to prevent this is to simply keep track of what you have, everything from dish soap and paper towels, right down to deodorant and toothpaste. You can easily keep track of it on a piece of paper or even on your computer, then you can print out what you need and don't need for household items. and this will also help you make on the spot decisions for those unadvertised specials. You might already have two 4-packs of toilet paper in the cupboard, but if you spot a good deal, stock up knowing that your family will go through your current inventory in under a month.

Something else to keep in mind when it comes to purchase a household items is how much you will truly use in the year. Yes, $.49 for a tube of toothpaste is a great deal, but buying 30 of them might not be the best budget conscious decision if you only go through four tubes the year. So it is important to keep in mind usage when you decide to stock up on household items.
