As every shopper appreciates, food costs continue to rise. While no one wants to make multiple trips to stock the pantry and the refrigerator due to soaring gas prices, the reality is that smart grocery shopping is key to keeping that food budget under control. But, no one wants to skip all the favorite seasonal foods. Luckily, there is an easy way to save on summer barbecue staples.

While some people are ready to hit the road, many people are excited to fire up the grill. The backyard is more than just an oasis. There is a feast waiting to be enjoyed by all.

Still, food costs can cause that feast to be a little less full. While many people have a food hack or two that cuts costs, everyone is looking beyond the simple idea of cook once, eat twice.

Choosing the right store is often key to maximizing food shopping and dollars spent. Although the age of coupon clipping might have passed, private label brands have seen a surge in popularity due to their cost effectiveness.

Save A Lot is ready to be that shopping helper. As Tim Schroder, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Save A Lot said, “We know everyone’s wallets are being squeezed by skyrocketing gas prices, bigger bills at restaurants and ‘shrinkflation’ from national food brands.” The company is ready to show that its private label offerings offer “more bang for their buck.” Save a Lot is more than just their name, it is the company’s shopping mantra.

With more and more people excited to head outside and light up the grill, the summer barbecue staples are a top priority. According to Save A Lot, choosing its private label offerings versus other brands can have up to 45%.
