SIX STEPS TO SAVING FOOD AND MONEY
Be the (wo)man with a plan. 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 food shop 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. Don’t let your online food shop generate a repeat order you don’t need. 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.
Get your portions right and both your purse and waistline will see the benefit. Check out this simple portioning hack which will help you to make a quick kids dinner, waste free.
