Choosing where you shop

A young woman in a grocery store shopping for canned soupWhen you shop for food, choose a store that’s clean and well supplied, and that has good prices. If the store is busy, the stock will turn over quickly.  Make sure the fresh foods like fruits, vegetables, and meats, look and smell fresh.  They’ll last longer.   Get to know your store, too.  This will help you find what you need and move through the store more quickly, so you’re less tempted to buy extras.  Try to buy bulk and non-food items like detergents and cleaning supplies at discount stores or warehouse clubs where they will cost you less. Choosing and knowing your store can save you money.
