SHOP SAVVY TIPS
Don’t forget to take your re-usable bags – lots of them!
Throw an esky in the boot of the car with a couple of ice-bricks to take your frozen goods home.
Be choosy when considering use-by dates. Select products with the longest shelf life so if you don’t use them on Christmas Day, they’ll still be OK to use when entertaining on the days following.
If possible, avoid grocery shopping during peak times. If you go about 8pm or 9pm you’ll avoid the crowds on the roads, in the carpark and in-store.
Write a list of what you need to buy, but be open to making a few last-minute tweaks in-store if you discover a slightly different product on special – gotta love a saving!
