Bankrate posted another great list of ways to on groceries. I like tip number two. I tend to look straight in front of me when looking at the shelves. If I bothered to look up or down I would probably 20% on my groceries.

Bankrate – When it comes to the grocery store, the rules are the same as those for the stock market: Do your homework, don’t fall for the hype and buy low.

This is especially pertinent in a year of soaring food prices. Many wonder how to save on groceries without eating less or stripping their shopping carts to the basics.

Here are 20 ways you can rein in your food bill without sacrificing time, your family’s health or your own sanity:

1. Eat your fruits and vegetables
2. Give those shelves the once-over
3. Stick to the edges
4. Shop early and alone
5. Set your shopping mood
6. Operate by the book
7. If you want to win the savings game, learn the rules
8. Know when to use a list
9. Know when not to use a list
10. Grocery stores are for groceries
11. Take a rain check
12. Know the system
13. Realize that more isn’t always cheaper
14. Request price matching
15. Look for double coupons
16. Weigh before you pay
17. Beware of “discount store syndrome
18. Realize that sometimes the best bargain isn’t the lowest price
19. Check your receipts
20. Put your savings to work
