Do you dread the weekly grocery store visit? Walking up and down the aisles, searching for ingredients, and fighting the checkout line isn’t always fun. Whether you look forward to planning your meals every week, getting an early start on grocery shopping, or taking the time to find coupons, we can help you make the process more enjoyable. With these four tips and tricks, you will be a grocery store guru in no time.
Download the App
Does your grocery store have an app? Take a second to download it before you head to the grocery store. With this trick, you’ll be able to see what is in stock, what’s on sale, digital coupons, and surprisingly, some stores even include the item’s location. Technology allows you to cut your time in half and save big.
Plan Your Meals
Walking into the store without a clue of what to get is setting yourself up for frustration and over-spending. Go ahead and decide what meals you would like to cook this week, so you have a clear vision of the grocery items needed. Remember, you might already have the basics in your kitchen, like spices, milk, and butter. Also, if you followed our first step, by downloading the app, you can be prepared for how much your groceries will cost. Check out Pinterest for unique recipes!
Get A Head Start
During these particular times, you might be trying to avoid crowds. Have you ever heard the saying early bird gets the worm? Grocery stores typically stock their shelves late at night or early in the morning. Beat the crowd and head to the store after dinner or in the morning before work.
Don’t Start Hungry
No one likes a hangry customer! Make sure you keep a snack in your car or have a meal before heading into the store. Chances are, if your tummy is grumbling, you’ll be tempted to buy unwanted items, which will raise your total at checkout.
