Whole FoodsThere was a time when Whole Foods was jokingly called “Whole Paycheck” because it was more expensive to shop there than at other grocery stores. Since then, Whole Foods has made some changes that might help lower their prices. In addition, there are some easy ways to save money at Whole Foods.

Get the Whole Foods App
The Whole Foods App is available for both iOS and Android. It gives you exclusive digital coupons, local store information, thousands of recipes, and local sales. You can even use the app to make a shopping list.

All users get the exact same coupons – but those coupons are not available to people who do not have the Whole Foods app. The digital coupons have expiration dates (just like paper coupons do). Make sure to scan the app at the register before you pay, so you can use the digital coupons.

Sign up for Whole Foods Rewards
Whole Foods Rewards has a pilot program that is currently available for Whole Foods Stores in the Dallas area and in the Philadelphia area. If you live in one of those areas, you can sign up for Whole Foods Rewards.

This rewards program lets shoppers earn rewards on select items that they buy. It offers instant sales that are recommended for individual users that are tailored to the user’s tastes. The rewards program also offers “more surprises.”

Get the Newsletter
You can sign up for the Whole Foods Newsletter for free. It comes to you in the form of email. The email you receive might contain recipes, coupons, and tips. The email is delivered to your inbox every week.

Buy in Bulk
You can buy beans, pasta, nuts, and other items in bulk quantities from Whole Foods. Use the store’s bulk containers to get exactly the amount you want. It’s nice to not have to pay for packaging or name-brand labels. Whole Foods gives shoppers a 10 percent discount when they buy wine (and other eligible items) by the case.

Bring Your Own Bags
If you live in an area that has a plastic bag ban, then you are already used to bringing your own bags when you go grocery shopping. Some Whole Foods locations offer a 5-cent or 10-cent discount for each bag you bring. It doesn’t sound like much, but can add up over time.

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.
