SHOP SAVVY TIPS

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Easy Entertaining -

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!
