This post will show you the best tips or hacks to make an efficient shopping list, in order to save money and not over buy.
1. Make an inventory
This might sound a bit crazy but trust me, it’s really helpful. Write down every single product you have. Make different lists: a food list (don’t forget to check the expiration date!), a hygiene list, a household list and a medicine list (again, check the dates).
2. Plan out your meals
Write down all your lunch ideas, dinner recipes and snacks that you’d normally have throughout the month/week, depending on the shopping list you’re making (a weekly or a monthly one).
3. Check your coupons
Go through your coupons and see if any of them match the items on your list, if they do, don’t forget to bring them (keep them close to your shopping list). See the expiring date of the remaining coupons. If they’re close to the end, you might want to buy the products on it, doing so you’ll be saving money and making the most out of the existing coupons.
4. Make the shopping list
Now that you finally gathered all of your data, you are ready to start writing down your shopping list. Write down all the needed items and have fun with it!
That’s it, I hope you enjoyed it and thank you for reading it. I’ll see you in my next post.
