Grocery shopping can be a tricky one sometimes, and it can end in a few items in your shopping trolley that you don’t intend to purchase!
My main tips would be:
Never grocery shop on an empty stomach.
Make a list of what you need to purchase – that way you won’t forget items.
Start around the edges of the grocery store – this is where you’ll find your wholegrains (bread, wraps etc), lean proteins, dairy products and the fruit and vegetables section.
Try to only enter the aisles when you know there’s a product in them you need e.g. baked beans, rice, tea/coffee, eggs etc – as you shop more at a certain location you’ll get to know their layout better.
Buy items unpackaged so you can choose exactly how much you want and that prevents wastage (e.g. chicken breast from the deli, spinach leaves, carrots etc).
