Three ways to save time at the grocery store
Grocery shopping is often a source of frustration for people since most see it as just another chore which is more often than not done on a empty stomach (which does turn it into something akin to torture). Here are three ideas for how to spend less time in the grocery store, before you even leave the house.
- Look at what you have in your fridge and pantry and decide what you can use up in the next week of meals. Who knows you might have all the ingredients you need to make one meal or several meals (as I discovered myself in a previous post). That way you wouldn’t have to go the grocery store at all. How’s that for a time saver!
- If you do need to go the grocery store, take a minute to decide what meals you are going to make then make a list of the ingredients that you need. Nothing wastes more time than wandering around a grocery store, trying to think of what to make for dinner and once you decide on that, trying to remember if you have the ingredients you need at home. Make a list. Stick to it.
- Don’t waste time clipping coupons. Fruits and vegetables rarely have coupons and they are the healthiest foods you can eat.
