Don't forget: Being economic not only means spending responsibly at the supermarket but also being responsible at home. What wastes most of your money is the leftovers that end up in the trash and other food that you let go bad.
1. Don't go shopping when you’re hungry…
2. Break free from the mentality “We can just put that in the freezer for another time.".
3. Don't talk on the phone while you are shopping, or if you do, then keep the conversation short.
4. Don't go shopping before you have decided what to buy.
5. Even if you're only planning on buying a few things, get the shopping basket instead of the cart.
6. If you write down a shopping list, you'll be able to control yourself!
7. If you're shopping for a new recipe, please check which ingredients you already have at home.
8. Just because that brand comes up in the commercials most often, that doesn’t mean that it’s the best brand.
9. Don’t just go by the sales aisle. But be sure to check the expiration date and the appearance of what you are buying.
10. Ready-to-go products are not as efficient as you think!
11. Try to buy the fruit and vegetables that are in season.
12. There are discounts on certain dates and items. You might benefit from keeping track of these.
13. You don't have to buy more than you can actually eat.
14. When you're waiting in the check-out line, don't buy any candy or chewing gum, etc. you see around, just to spend.
15. Don't forget that the economic attitude should be retained at home as well.
16. You can at least feed the stray animals and save yourself from wasting your money.
