2. Create A Menu

Meal planning is a good way to plan meals for the week.

If you don’t have the items put the items on your grocery list.

Doing it this way, you are unlikely to buy things you already have in your cupboards.

5. Compare Prices

Compare prices of grocery shopping items from different supermarkets. Use the mySupermarket app to compare prices and to find great offers on grocery items.

6. Go Grocery Shopping Without Kids

Try to go grocery shopping without kids.

Kids will slow you down, the more time you spend in the supermarket, the more you are likely to spend on grocery, picking things that are not on your grocery list.

When grocery shopping try to go alone leave the kid at home.

7. Shop In Season

Buy fruits and vegetables when they are in season.

For example, buy more strawberries in the summer time because they will be plenty around so their prices will be reduced.

Buy them in winter and the price will have increased because they will be out of season.
