Crystal Paine’s 5 Money Saving Tips for Families 
Create a Budget
A budget gives you parameters and purpose, it gives you boundaries, and it gives you freedom to live creatively within those boundaries.

Shop With Cash
When you shop with a credit card (or even a debit card, for that matter!) you can have your budget in your head and you can do the best to stick with it when you check out, but it’s so much easier to go just a little bit over here and there when you’re swiping! 
Plan a Menu
When you have a plan in place for what you’re supposed to be eating each meal and you’ve already purchased the ingredients for those recipes, it’s a lot harder to justify chucking the plan for takeout.

Use Coupons
Coupons are a great way to save a lot of money on your grocery bill, but they can be hard to keep up with. Clipping, sorting, and organizing coupons takes time — so enter a coupon database! You’ll have access to printable and other coupons currently available and it’s one of the most effective and efficient ways to save money on groceries. 
Buy Store Brands
One way to save a great deal of money on your grocery budget is to learn to like and use a variety of brands. The sooner you can get over being a brand-snob, the more your pocketbook will thank you.
For example, while I breast fed my children, moms who choose to formula feed can save up to 50 percent by switching to store brand formula, which meets the same FDA quality standards as expensive name brands. There are also coupons available at a website - StoreBrandFormula.com (www.storebrandformula.com). This one simple change can save moms about $600 a year.

I buy a lot of store brand items--like you, I have 6 kids and need to save money on groceries where I can! We always buy store brand milk, eggs, bread, etc, and often buy the store brand of many other things as well. Aldi has a great store brand with many products that we really like! And their off-brand dish tablets work great!

My favorite store brand item which I only tried recently, is baby formula. I tried the Parent's Choice which was about $10 less, and comparing the labels it had the same nutritional values. I also like buying staple items store brand - pasta, sugar, rice, etc.
