I don’t know about you but going to the grocery store can be very stressful. Nothing is in its proper place, no one in sight to help, and your cart is full of things that you don’t need.
Let me say this first, eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive, but it does take a little patience to get the freshest items for the best deal. Take a look at sale papers to plan your perfect shopping trip.
I personally go to the local farmers market for fruits and veggies, my local meat market for meat and Wal-Mart for the miscellaneous Items such as Tea, Water, Quinoa, Essential oils, Whole wheat bread etc.
A Grocery list when done properly not only can save you money but aide in your health journey when followed.
Here is a sample grocery list and a few tricks when creating one:
- Plan out meals for the week first then create your list
- Clip coupons ahead of time
- Check out your local gamers markets it fresh fruit and veggies. The prices are normally way cheaper.
