9) Try Generic Products

When you enter a store, you will likely notice that each item is made by several different brands. Oftentimes, the cheaper generics are just as good as the big-name brands. Each time you make a shopping list, you should list items by type, and then compare prices at the store. If you are nervous about trying generics, you can do some research. You can look at online reviews and figure out which items are best to substitute. Additionally, you should keep your eyes out for sales. Sometimes, sales on name brands may be at the same price or cheaper than generics. This is especially so if big companies are running a special promotion. Another thing to pay attention to is the unit price. Differing size packages can make price comparisons difficult, so keeping track of this will get you a true deal.
