If you go food shopping and wonder where all your money has gone, you’re definitely not alone. Food shopping for multiple people can be a real drain on the finances, but usually, you’ll find you can spend less with a few simple tweaks. Take a look at the reasons you could be spending so much on food below, and see what you can do about them:
You’re Not Going Shopping With A List
Shopping with a list should be mandatory. Stick to your list and you will save, guaranteed.
You’re Going Shopping Hungry
Going shopping hungry is probably the worst thing you can do. Ever. Well, maybe that’s a little dramatic, but it’s still not a good idea. Eat before you shop and you’ll be less tempted by treats.
You’re Taking Your Kids Shopping
Kids are all ‘I want’ and ‘can I have’ and their cute little faces make it super difficult to say no. Leave them at home or with a babysitter.
You Don’t Have A Budget
If you don’t have a budget, you’re basically winging life. Get your act together and put together a budget pronto. Having something to stick to will give you an incentive to only buy what you truly need.
