There is one day of the week that it’s the cheapest to buy your food.
Nutritionist Steph Grasso says most new deals start on Wednesdays, and old deals tend to stick around for the remainder of the day.
The middle of the week also likely means the shelves are freshly stocked, so there are more options to choose from.
Grasso also said that there tend to be fewer shoppers on Wednesdays, so there will be fewer people to navigate through when searching for those deals.
She also recommends keeping track of the prices of the items in your cart and rounding them up to the nearest dollar. This allows shoppers to be more mindful when grabbing their items.
When budgeting for grocery shopping, Grasso recommends choosing three to four recipes ahead of time and writing down all of their required ingredients.
She then recommends trying to figure out if any of the ingredients can be mixed and matched from the other recipes to cut down on the number of items that need to be purchased.
The key is then checking what ingredients are already in the fridge and pantry to cut down on the list even more.
Grasso uses talks about eating habits, ways to save and gives recipe ideas on her social media accounts.
