Make a grocery list from your week's menu plan. Do not shop when you are hungry. PUT THE GROCERIES IN THE TRUNK of the car and don't nibble on the way home. Go in the door closest to the fresh produce. Avoid processed foods if you can. AND READ THE NUTRITION LABELS.

What I do is select low fat recipes I am going to use the following week and take my grocery list from the recipes. I treat myself to a a hot skinny mocha grande from Starbucks and to hit the grocery store. So far this plan has kept me on track and i have lost 40 pounds.211
I have three friends who are as crazy about saving money as I am. Whenever any of us notice a particularly fantastic deal, we call the other three. Since we can't shop each grocery store each week, this is a great way to learn about the catalina coupons that print after specific grocery purchases. For example, last week one friend gave me a tip that helped me buy boxes of cereal for $0.50 after coupons. I am stocked for the next three months.
