Saving Money with Loss Leaders

One technique that many budget conscious parents use is searching for grocery store loss leaders, and then planning your weekly meals around those items. If ground beef is priced at a "too good to pass up" price, plan your weekly meals around using ground beef.

Many people worry that using the same loss leader over a course of the week could get boring. But what you need to consider is the you can use ground beef for every single meal of the week, while still providing a diversified meal plan. One night could be meatloaf, another night spaghetti, at yet another night hamburgers. It is quite easy to make up meals using the same base product while still providing variety.

another thing to consider doing is buying loss leaders in bulk, and storing it for later. Whether that loss leader is canned tomatoes, ground beef or toilet paper, if you have the room to store it, buying a lot of leaders in bulk makes sense and cents.
