Where to look for deals at the grocery store

Manufacturers pay a premium to get their products on eye-level shelves.

Most of these products are over-priced.

If you want to save money, stick to items above and below the eye-level.

In the cereal aisle though, they put their premium cereals at kids eye-level so kids will see them and ask for them.

How To Save Money At The Grocery Store

1. Buy things only when they are on sale.  Buy enough to get you to the next time it goes on sale.

2. Use a coupon on the sale item to get even more money off.

3.  Some stores let you use both a manufacturer coupon and store coupon on the same item.  You can usually get items for free or nearly free by doing this.

Natural Ant Repellant

You can find many common household items around your kitchen that will repel ants.

1.  Clean areas where you see ants with a mixture of vinegar and lemon juice.  This will remove the scent of their trail to stop them from coming to that area.

2. Place a Bay leaf close to the area that they enter the home.  Switch it every week or two.

3. Sprinkle baby powder or salt across their trail to make a barrier.

4. Sprinkle mint, red chili powder, cinnamon or black pepper in the areas where you see the ants or grow these plants outside of your house to deter ants from entering your home.
