The following are six steps service members and their families can follow to extend their grocery budgets: 1) Shop the commissary: Consistently shopping the commissary provides an average savings of 32 percent over retail grocery store prices. Yearly savings for a family of four average about $4,500; a family of three saves more than $3,500; and a couple saves more than $2,800 and a single service member saves more than $1,500. Please take note of Extra Savings shelf signs. Visit the Savings Aisle at to view prices and percent savings of specific sale items in the store where you shop. 2) Plan ahead: Meal planning and eating more meals at home help reduce your overall food expenditures. 3) Make a list: A list helps avoid impulse buys. If you find an item on sale that you'll use later, feel free to add it. Also, never shop when your tired or hungry. 4) Read labels and compare prices: When comparing prices of competing brands, compare the number of servings per container. A cheaper price on a larger size is only a savings if you actually use those extra ounces. 5) Do it yourself: The higher price for convenience items reflects the labor required to pre-cook, pre-cut or pre-measure. Substantial savings can be had by making these preparations yourself. 6) Redeem coupons: Coupons and rebate savings can add up fast.

Commissary News


Commissary Surcharge Helps Patrons Improve Benefit:
There's a lot to learn about the commissary surcharge just by considering four new commissaries opened last year on Army, Navy and Air Force installations. Thanks to the surcharge the 5 percent added to every commissary customer's receipt the military communities at Naval Support Activity Annapolis, Maryland; Fort Polk, Louisiana; Maxwell Air Force Base Gunter Annex, Alabama; and Naval Submarine Base New London, Connecticut, had new stores opened in 2014, replacing well-worn facilities to the tune of $62 million. Surcharge funds paid the construction costs. Here are some surcharge facts: 1) Surcharge dollars go back into stores, paying for the construction of new/replacement stores, renovations, maintenance and repairs, store equipment and store-level information technology systems, such as the checkouts; 2) The overall commissary-shopper savings of 30 percent or more takes into consideration the 5 percent surcharge; 3) The surcharge has been set at 5 percent since 1983, and cannot be changed without congressional approval.
