When to Shop Tips

Don't shop hungry. Studies indicate you'll spend 10% more on your groceries.

Avoid after-work shoppers, paydays and just before holidays.

Shop for items BEFORE you run out of them. If you run out of an item, you'll have to pay whatever the store is charging that week.

Learn the sales cycle and know when to expect certain items to go on sale (e.g. condiments in early summer and baking supplies just before Christmas).

Buy foods that are in season. They'll be top quality and likely less expensive than imported foods.

Do one bulk-shopping trip a month for staples. This makes the other three weeks easier with fewer bags to carry in and fewer groceries to put away.

Frequent trips will be necessary if you shop for "soon-to- expire" items. Remember to keep disciplined during these trips. Don't buy on impulse.
