Don't let the grocery stores fool you.

Do you watch what you buy at the grocery store? Do you watch the dates? Do you read labels? Do you know that the grocery store puts the almost expired dates in front and the good ones in back of items? Do you check dates when you buy meat? Do you feel fruit and veggies to make sure they are not too soft?
Sometimes, we are in so much of a hurry we neglect to do these things, and then kick ourselves when we have to throw stuff out. We all know we need to eat healthy foods but sometimes we buy foods that are not good for us. Buying foods that are in containers is not as good as buying fresh foods. Buying frozen foods does not taste as good as fresh foods.
We can not always buy fresh foods because, unless you are home to cook everyday, food will spoil, and that is where frozen comes in handy. Buying meat, or chicken, or fish and checking dates, you can freeze it for when you want to cook it.
Watching for coupons and checking stores that have double coupon day helps a lot. Sometimes, you have to watch when you see a sale to make sure you are getting the best deal. For example, sometimes l0 for l0 dollars is the same as buying one for a dollar.
We all need to be smart when we go grocery shopping because the grocery store is trying its' best to sell all its' food. By right, they are suppose to send back food that is outdated, but I still find it in the stores, so make sure you read the dates and labels to make sure you are not buying something that you could be allergic to or not good for your health.
