Do you take a grocery list to the store?
You should take a list with you every time you go to the store. When you follow a list, you buy only what you need. If you stick to your grocery list, you can reduce your grocery bill and food waste. It also allows you to get quickly in and out of the store. It is the key to saving time and money in the grocery store.
How many times a week do you go to the grocery store?
Multiple trips to the grocery store without a plan cause shoppers to spend more money. A grocery store is designed to entice you to pull items off the shelf, so the more often you go, the more you have to resist temptation.
How long does it take you to do your weekly grocery shop?
Studies show that for every minute over thirty (30) minutes you spend in the grocery store, you spend $1 a minute. If you organize your grocery list by department, you can minimize the time you spend in the store. That will save you $1 per minute!
