How to Save Money on Canned Goods

It used to be that buying canned goods was the cheapest way to go. These days, however, it is a mixed bag. Many brand name canned goods can be quite expensive. Still, canned goods can be convenient and are great for stockpiling in case of an emergency.

Because of those two factors, I make an effort to save on canned goods. Here is my best advice on how to save money on canned goods.

Most stores have promotions for canned goods or stock up sales a couple of times a year when they feature deals on a lot of their canned goods. Many stores are doing this right now, although some feature these canned goods promotions around the holidays. Stock up on your coupons and buy in quantity during this time for the best savings.

I generally stay away from buying soups if possible. They are getting quite expensive, and they are mostly water. Making soup at home is pretty easy and cost effective. If you still want to purchase canned soup, stick to the store brands which are much less money to purchase. This is especially true for soups that you using for cooking.

Look to your stores discount shelves. Many times you will find canned goods with slight dents or tears in their labels. Dented cans are usually fine, as long as they don’t bulge and are still sealed.

Many canned goods come in large family sized cans. Check the pricing, but this is generally a great way to go. If you can’t use up all of the product, simple freeze the unused portion for later.

Happy Shopping,

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
