“PureWow” spoke to Kristen Gall, who is the retail and shopping expert at Rakuten. She shares that meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products have been the most affected by inflation. Here are her hacks on how you can cut down your grocery bills. Make a list before you shop and stick to it when you shop. Swamp out brand names for generic. Buy essentials in bulk. Sign up for your supermarket’s loyalty program. Use cash back platforms to save even more. Apps like Rakuten, Ibotta, Receipt Hog and Shopkick will give you coupons and rebates on stores including supermarkets.
