Grocery shopiing is one of the most important aspect of our lives. But some people gets confused while shopping for it.
Always go with the list. If you go without a list, you might also throw your money. Better yet, donating it to me – I might need it more than you. 🙂 Seriously, you need to prepare a list of everything you need, draw from your weekly menu (next tip) and check to make sure you don't have it in your kitchen, fridge or freezer. Make sure you don't forget anything. Now remain on that list. You can check this useful reference to get detailed information.
Plan the Weekly menu. This is the best way to ensure that your list is complete, and that you have enough to serve your family dinner for a week. I often plan a weekly menu and then duplicate for next week – in this way I can shop for two weeks at once. Be sure to plan the rest of the food.
Don't go when you are hungry. This is a common tip, but it's true: when you are hungry, you want to buy all kinds of garbage. You will spend more. Eat a good one first, and you will be more likely to stick to your list.
Have a budget. When I went to the store, I knew exactly how much I could spend. Then I tried my best to stay at that limit. If you don't know how much you can spend, you will definitely spend too much.
