Save Money on Groceries - canned food

Most people want to save money on groceries. Who can blame them? The price of food in the store has never been higher. Increased cost of fuel has pushed up prices, especially vegetables.

Have you been to the canned food outlet lately? That's a place where you can save some money, if you know what you're shopping for, and you know what they're offering.

Canned food outlets are the type of place that sells "off brand" products, mostly canned goods, that you can pick up for much less.

There can be some funky stuff there too, like fake cheese that doesn't melt because it's not cheese - it's some flour based product that is a good cheese look alike. So, be aware of what you are buying.

Canned goods have an indefinite shelf life, so stocking up on them makes sense and it's a good way to save money on groceries. I can remember my grandparents having canned goods at their home that still had the purple inked prices on the top long after sticker prices and bar codes were all you could find in the stores.

They even had steel soda cans that required a can opener, many many years after all beer and soft drinks had pull tops. Now, that tells you just how long something in a can will last.

I absolutely love canned corn. If I see a great deal on canned corn, I grab it. My shelves still have canned corn from many years ago. My friends fondly refer to it as my "vintage" food. I suppose I should rotate my stock a bit and consume some of that corn, if for no other reason than just pure nostalgia.

When you see a good bargain on canned goods, feel free to stock up to save money over the long haul. This is a good approach to frugal living, and one that you can use year in and year out.
