SIX STEPS TO SAVING FOOD AND MONEY
Be the (wo)man with a plan. Take a moment to think about the week ahead and when you’ll be eating at home. Plan a few days at a time and make a list. Oh and you should definitely take a ‘shelfie’ before you head out so you know what to buy.
Shop smart. Use your list and try not to be seduced by offers that you may not be able to eat. Keep an eye on date labels and buy in small quantities when you can. A deal is only a deal if you can eat it.
Storing food in the right place can make it last longer and taste better.
