Simple steps to save you $$$

To help you all I want to pass on my top tips for saving money on your groceries bill.




1. Set a budget

2.Menu plan for the week/fortnight to fit within the budget

3.Write a shopping list and stick to it

4. Impulsive buyers, try to shop on line and have groceries delivered to prevent buying things you don't need.


5.Buy/use foods that are in season-they will be cheaper


6. Grow your own fruit and vegetables

7. Stock up on staples when they come into season

8. Try "no frills" brands


9.Shop around for the best deals-read your junk mail

10. Utilise local fresh produce markets, butchers and bakeries

11. Learn to cook and get creative, you may surprise yourself

12. Aquire a spice rack and add to it. you can do a lot of variations in your dishes when you have them

13. Sugar and fat is not food. Buy things that are going to make you full and give you long term energy. If you don't you will end up buying more food anyway as you will be hungry

I always think I should menu plan and don't always manage - but when I do it definitely makes a difference. It also means I don't have the 'oh no what's for dinner' scenario
