1. Make a list and stick to it!

Your grocery store list should include all the foods and the ingredients you want to purchase in order to cook healthy and delicious snacks and meals. Make sure you have a list of all the products you want to buy before you head out.

This way, you will know exactly what you’re looking for, and you won’t be tempted to buy things you don’t actually need. Moreover, you won’t waste any time wandering around the aisle, because life is busy!

2. Calculate 

It’s easy to get distracted when you’re in the grocery store. The boxes of chocolates look like they say hi to you, the wine battle almost jumps in your cart, and the bags of chips beg you to take them home with you.

A trick to avoid all these issues is to calculate all the prices for the things you want to buy and establish a budget. It might be annoying to do it, but if you want to save some extra cash, while also limiting waste and unhealthy products, you should give it a try!

3. Choose store brands

You might think that popular brands or those with fancy packaging are better than the no-name ones, but it’s not true. Store brand items are just as nutritious as the other ones and they are usually cheaper compared to the ones most people get.

You can get cereal, milk, vegetables, pasta, and all sorts of canned goods for a great price if you choose to purchase store brand items.

4. Go to the “reduced” section 

You might not be tempted to buy products that are in the “reduced” section since they will go out of date in a few days. However, if you plan on cooking and baking, these are going to be some of your best allies.

For instance, ripe bananas are great for baking banana bread or muffins. Reduced vegetables will have a delicious taste in stews and soups, while ripe melons can be cut into small pieces and frozen, or puréed to make smoothies.
