  • Don't overbuy. Just because there's a two-for-one sale doesn't mean you're saving money. By buying more than you need, you're essentially paying rent for storing products. 

  • Don't shop on a hungry stomach. If your eyes are bigger than your stomach, just remember that they’ll still be selling those beautiful tomatoes next week.

  • Take smaller trips. If possible, take smaller, more frequent trips to the market so you only purchase what you need.  

  • Enjoy a clutter-free kitchen. Can you see everything in your fridge and freezer? If your kitchen is packed with food, it may be hard to find what you need.
