According to the household income and labor dynamics of 2019 in Australia report, the typical Australian household is worse off today than during the global financial crisis – which means that smart budgeting is a must.

If family finances are tight, & # 39; save inventory & # 39; a way to ensure that the pantry and the freezer are always full.

A woman with three children recently went to a Facebook budget group to reveal how her most recent shopping expedition cost 133.95 and saved her $ 120.75.

& # 39; We adhere to a strict budget of $ 160 a week every week and because we keep a good rotation of all sorts of things, this is an example of how we make it work & # 39 ;, the woman wrote with a snap in which she revealed her last broadcast.

She said the key to making the practice work for her family, including a teenager with food sensitivities and a toddler, was to stay away from processed foods.

& # 39; We do not eat a lot of bread, pasta or rice-based meals or use meal bases from a pot or package. Things like strawberry milk, chips, and ice cream are a treat, & she said.

Her most recent store, which cost $ 133.95, came with different packages of meat, ready-made roasts, chicken nuggets, drumsticks and wings, yogurt, strawberry milk, and six containers of a liter of ice, a cake, chips, and washing powder.

The budget conscious mother said the trick to maximize savings was to buy as much food as possible that was as limited as possible, especially if it was freeze.

"Once a good rotation has been saved, this is what a store usually looks like (of course, items change every week depending on which items are on special offers," she said).

The technology is a bit more time-consuming because it visits different stores to find out how prices compare.

& # 39; Finding out the butcher's specials is the key to comparing lower kilo prices in the supermarket (we didn't need meat this week, but reduced items keep the freezer full of good variety), & # 39; she said.

What is the best way to build up a supermarket stock?

One thing to think about before you save is how much extra storage space you have. You may need a second pantry or extra pantry space.

If you are going to store dry food, you may need to consider buying airtight containers. This is important because some foods should not be eaten for months and you want to make sure it stays fresh and away from pests.

Decide what you need to stock before you go shopping. Your inventory needs depend on the size of your family.

In addition, you may want to consider how the local climate can affect food that you have stored. If you live in a tropical climate, you can see that some foods mold if they are not stored in the refrigerator.

She added them to stores for fresh produce separately and will buy from her local greengrocer because their prices are lower than supermarkets.

Although she understands that her store may not be so & # 39; productive & # 39; looks like others, the technology kept her freezer and pantry full and always paid off when Christmas rolled around.

& # 39; Come on Christmas vacation, I won't be shopping for four to six weeks (fresh produce an exception), she said.

The savings allow her to give her family a few trips during the holidays and to ensure that the budget is not burdened when the school starts again.

The best times to shop for great deals

Australia's leading supermarkets discount items throughout the day, with 20, 40, 60, 80 and even 99 percent lower than retail prices.

There are no set days for price reductions because products are constantly outdated – but bargain hunters say the best times for shopping are early in the morning or shortly before closing time.

Families are waiting for the right time to do their shopping so that they can save a fortune on their shopping in this way.

The best price reductions will always be in the afternoon until late at night, at the end of the business, because the option for the store is to sell it or throw it away & she said, Yahoo.

Many enthusiastic bargain hunters agreed and revealed that the price reductions usually take place early in the afternoon or within an hour before closing time.

But if you are serious about getting products for a fraction of the price, Bertram said that each store is rolling out discount stickers at different times.

& # 39; It took me about a month to go back and forth to the stores and train when the write-downs take place, & # 39; she said.
