If you’re trying to stretch your budget that little bit further, these smart shopping tips will help to prevent you from overspending at the grocery store.
- Supermarkets often put the priciest products on the eye-level shelves. Take time to go through the different brands on the higher and lower shelves, to get the best price.
- Don’t go shopping while you’re hungry; you’re more likely to spend more on food, and to buy extra snacks.
- Clean out your fridge and pantry cupboard once a month, and use up what you have before buying more.
- Be sure to take your shopping list with you, so you know exactly what you need and don’t end up making unnecessary purchases.
