Do you have to do a little dance to distract the kids from the confectionary aisle? Here’s your roadmap (plus or minus the dancing) to keep you on track during your weekly shop:
1. Plan meals and snacks for the week before you get to the supermarket, to avoid impulse purchases.
2. Make your way around the perimeter of the supermarket first – where the fresh fruit is kept, as well as vegetables (frozen and fresh), the dairy and meat fridges, fresh breads and deli. Fill your trolley with these choices first.
3. Venture into the middle aisles last to complete your shopping list. Remember you don’t have to hit every single aisle.
The bottom line: prepare before you go, and shop with purpose. If you need more tailored advice and perhaps a supermarket tour, contact us.
