Grocery Shopping Made Easy

Plan - Plan your trips to the grocery store. Grocery shopping can be time consuming, so planning is very important. Plan a budget, sort your coupons (if you have any), see what's on sale, what do you need to buy, etc.

Make a list - There's nothing worse than having to make several trips to the grocery store because you forgot something. Also, there's less chance of impulse buying. Make a list best you can by isles. Front to back or back to front which ever is easiest and however your store is set up.

Keep a running total - As you shop add each item by rounding off to the nearest dollar such as $2.89 to $3.00. It's much easier to add that way. This also allows you to stay within your budget.

Don't shop during peak times - Peak times at the grocery store are between 5pm and 7pm Monday thru Saturday. Shop around those hours for quicker, more efficient and less stressful shopping.

Shop alone - Shopping alone allows for less distractions and more efficient shopping allowing you to get out of the store much quicker.

Your suggestion to shop alone is true. When my husband comes with me I always walk out of there with more things my cart than needed..
