So that being said, what to do? Saw some good ideas on the morning TV show and so decided is time I pursued my earlier thoughts on cutting down on the number of times I go to the supermarket a week which for me is almost daily and if I only go in for one thing sure as hell come out with a bundle.
My List of things to do to get me on track and you if you think it will help.
- Decide how often to shop weekly or fortnightly for me it will be weekly because fresh fruit and vegetables will not always keep for a fortnight especially when you don't really know how they have been stored. So weekly and this week I will try the market's for my fruit and vegetable to compliment those in the local supermarket that does have some nice fresh stuff.
- Draw up a menu for the week. I am not going to cover every meal as I have tried that before and end up with too much because I go out to friends or eat out so let's say 5 days of meals.
- Then accordingly write out your shopping list
- Have some fun with all this and it should stick especially if you start to save money which can go towards little luxuries or into a fund or to get out of debt
Till next time
Have fun, eat well and be happy
