Shopping the Perimeter Makes No Cents

by - April 18, 2019

One of the frugal tips I read time and time again is one way to save money on your grocery bill is to only shop the perimeter of your grocery store. 

The theory here is that the food in the middle aisles of your grocery store are expensive, highly processed, and filled with artificial ingredients. The advice is that you will save money by by not buying these foods and only shopping the perimeter. 

My problem with this advice is that if you only shop the perimeter then you are missing out on some very frugal foods that will save you money. 

Foods like oatmeal, dried beans, rice, popcorn, canned tomatoes, pasta,  etc., can only be found in the middle of the grocery store. 

These frugal foods lie at the very foundation of a frugal lifestyle. Taking these frugal foods items off the table would not be a wise financial move. 

Besides I enjoy going down the grocery store aisles to see items they have on markdown. If I didn't do that I might miss out on a good deal.
