Grocery Shopping Tips



Some guidelines for grocery shopping - You've heard the line, "Stay on the perimeters of the grocery store", no? This helps you stay away from the snack, sugary drinks and processed foods! I take this one further and only go into an aisle if I need something there. No impulse shopping in an aisle! Also, if you haven't eaten recently, consider having a healthy snack including something protein before you shop. This actually will save you time and money in the long run. emoticon

  • Make a LIST before u ever go to the store and stay with what is on the list. Keep a detailed inventory of what you have in your kitchen, and don't buy things you have no need for. 1/3rd of grocery money is wasted on items people had no intention of buy. (That is what MARKETING is all about, getting YOUR money out of your pocket.) - by JIBBIE49
  • Someone else must have learned the things I was taught when I worked for a grocery store change. Produce, meat, dairy, and frozen foods are all on the perimeters. - by BECKYI
  • Always eat something before entering a grocery store. If you're hungry when you enter it will be a disaster! - by SCHARFRED
