Here are some more tips on how to shop for food for less!
Yes, we would like to emphasize the importance of having a budget. This will limit your expenses, especially if you follow them to the letter. And to do this, always consider what is realistic and doable. If you become too stringent, then you’d end up not being able to buy anything at all. What you can do is…
Create a list and stick to it. In order to easily create a list that contains everything you need, it is best to create a menu for a week. List down all the ingredients you will need to buy for all the meals and determine the quantity as well. Based on this, you can now create a shopping list.
Based on this list, you can now note down your cost estimate for all the items. Tally it up and you’ll have an idea of around how much money you would bring with you.
Never shop when you are hungry. You end up buying more than you actually need and steer clear of displays. Don’t linger at the checkout counter as they always place tempting goodies there. They are strategically placed there to tempt you to buy more stuff.
