If it is food, bring it on. That is what how most of us shop when we are in the pantry section. We buy things in bulk, and things we “might need”, rather than the things we need and we are going to eat. It leads to a lot of waste. It even fills up our bins with food. There is a smart way to buy food. It reduces the amount of food that goes to your bin. Plus it saves the money.
30% of people say that they do not check the fridge before they go shopping. It seems that half of us who go shopping do not check the freezer before going to shop. You need to have a checklist of the things you have or don’t have. To make shopping easy and know what you have got, write down what you have got, or take a fridge selfie.
Check out the extra corners and cupboards to know all the extra food and packets you have. You might find an extra packet of something you already have. Normally, some of us think it is a good thing to have our pantry full and overflowing. But the food that hits the expiry date has no other job than going to the bin.
Be wise, and shop less and wisely. Another important tip to use while shopping for grocery is to buy smaller packets. On your way back from the gym, do not buy a huge carton of milk that you think you might drink. Buy things you are sure you want on your diet.
Many of the fitness experts advice on keeping your fridge clean. It happens only when you plan your meal ahead. That way you will have no extra food to waste away.
