What happens when we can’t pay our bills!

Expenses

As we all know, there are many expenses in the world. There are heating/AC, electricity, gas, entertainment, rent, medical bills… and most importantly FOOD expenses!!!

average amount spent on groceries for one person per month

According to this table from¬†http://www.loweryourspending.com/average-amount-spent-on-groceries-for-one-person-per-month.html, the average cost for groceries per month is around $290.00.¬†That is a lot of money considering that there is a lot more money required to pay for other bills. That is why many people are going into debt, and as a result can not afford to pay for transportation or even medical help. Many can’t afford to pay for college tuition, family expenses, and can not put any money into investment funds, because they are living from check to check even if they need to work two jobs or possibly more.

Coupons

The best way to solve this financial issue is to use coupons from the store. I added up the money I saved from my monthly bills, and I saved over $1000.00 because of coupons. That is considerable. Even though you might think that grocery stores are just trying to profit, that is not the only case, I know for a fact that my neighborhood GIANT gives coupons every day. They really help not only on groceries, but also on other expenses.

Stores Working Together

Now, grocery stores have agreed to work with other companies to help people afford other things/necessities including gas, car washes, and even pharmaceutical discounts.

What We Can Do

My hope is that everyone who is having financial trouble should try to use coupons for hep. Even though it is time consuming, every penny counts.

  1. Great point, I usually spend $400 per month for groceries so there is room to save money. I like food so I usually buy meats and other expensive food but look for buy one get one deals to save more money.

    • Definitely!
      You know it’s alright to spend money on foods that you like, because we only live once and should enjoy ourselves.
      That is, if you can afford the food.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  6. All right, I’m definitely going to have to start taking coupons way more seriously because if the average cost for a month of groceries is only $290 my household is really dropping the ball because we spend so much more. I think alone spend more than that on food in a month, let alone my whole family. You have me recognizing that this crazy fast metabolism life, is really hitting me in the pocket. Coupons are about to become a major factor in my life.
