Resist impulse buying
As you’re heading toward the checkout line with your portion-conscious purchases in tow, a big flashy sale sign catches your eye. Not one to pass up a value, you stock your cart with rock-bottom deals, letting proactive waste control fall by the wayside. Sound familiar? You’re not alone.
“The next thing you know, you’re buying things that you’re not going to use because the perception of value was presented to you,” Valentine says. “It’s not valuable if you’re throwing it away two days later.”
Your grocery bills will be lower, and you’ll waste way less food, if you stick to your shopping list without getting sucked into specials and sales. We know it’s hard to resist the temptation, but we believe in you!
