SOS Tips: Smart grocery shopping

18 October, 2009 , , , ,

3. Go for non-processed foods and … cook


Meals that are cooked using fresh, non-processed products not only taste better, but are also healthier options for your body and your wallet.

Instead of spending $2 on 200g of potato chips, it makes more sense to spend it on 5kg (25 times more) of potatoes!

4. Adopt a sensible attitude at the grocery store

  • Don’t do your grocery shopping on an empty stomach, as this could result in impulsive buys that are dictated by hunger pangs.
  • The private label items are usually priced better than the bigger name brands.
  • Check out the foods that are placed on the top and bottom shelves. This is where you’ll normally find better-priced products.Real Bargains with SOSPlus

I find I waste money and food because I’m only shopping for three retired persons. How can I store cottage cheese, or specialty greens when I don’t need them in my recipes again for maybe weeks on end?
