Take a Shopping Trip and Save

If you live in a rural area where shopping options are limited you may be wise to travel to a larger town or city once every 6 - 8 weeks or so to do a large shop for staples and items that are noticeably more expensive at your local grocer.  I did this regularly when we lived in the country, travelling 120km each way to stock up on basic grocery items and those more exotic ingredients I couldn't source locally.  Even with the fuel and a whole day for the trip we saved a lot of money. You will need to do your sums and make sure you really are saving money and don't forget to factor in the cost of fuel and time.
