No Image9 Ways to Grocery Shop Smarter and Faster

    I think stocking up on canned tomatoes when they’re on sale is a great idea. I will definitely use them, and they last for such a long time.

    As for not buying what’s on sale and the produce thing… Make the most out of produce by buying what’s on sale (produce is outrageous- which should be a crime) then build your meal plans around your discounted veggies. I learned this when I subscribed to a veggie box delivery and I’d end up with all kinds of veggies I didn’t know what to do with. So I’d hop on pinterest, type in the veggie and pick a recipe I knew I could handle (or called for stuff I had) and the fam would like. It was a great way to use up produce and try new veggies.

    The cookbook app, Paprika, I use syncs between my iPhone and iPad.

    I use a cookbook app on my iPad that generates a grocery list. The night before my weekly grocery trip, I study my favorite natural food store’s ad and select recipes with ingredients that are on sale and that becomes my weekly menus. I arrange the meal plan, so it will use up the most perishable items first. I usually shop on Wednesday, which is senior discount day.

    My husband has dyslexia and nixed my fancy print out grocery list that had a bunch of categories like meat and veggies. He said it was too hard to add things to, bc he had to scan the list and think about what category the food fell into. So back to our regular list on the fridge! If I think I might stop by the store soon I will take a photo of the fridge list. That way I have the list if I need it, but I won’t lose it if I don’t end up going.
