- PLAN BEFORE YOU GO - Think about what want to eat (consider meals at home, school/work lunches, and on-the-go snacks). Then do an inventory of your fridge & pantry, so you don't overbuy or forget something you thought you had. When you plan meals, try to plan things with overlapping ingredients, so you save money and waste less food.
- MAKE A LIST AND STICK TO IT - Your list is your guide through the grocery store; it will help you avoid "impulse buys" (which are never healthy) and also prevent you from blowing your budget.
- DON'T SHOP HUNGRY - The reason for this is obvious: you'll end up with a cart full of Cheez-its and M&M's. If you have to shop after work, or when you know you'll be hungry, keep some small snacks in your purse or glove compartment (individually-packed nuts, dried fruit, or granola bars) so you can kill the hunger pangs before walking into the store.
