Plans Tonight?

Are you expecting a busy week that will limit your time in the kitchen? This is not the time to buy lots of vegetables, fruits and other perishable foods that will “hang out” in the fridge. Alternatively, did you overdo it by buying fruits and vegetables that will soon be overripe? Invite friends over for a meal!

Host Within Reason

When it comes to hosting guests, most of us like to overload the table and create a feeling of abundance, but is it really necessary?

Inventory Check

After deciding what you will cook this week and before going shopping, take a look in the refrigerator and pantry and check what is already there and does not need to be restocked.

Buy Nearby

Public surveys show that monthly shopping trips at large supermarkets do not guarantee financial savings, since a large part of the inexpensive groceries will be thrown away because we did not have time to use them. Prioritize small one-off purchases of products required for the upcoming meal and avoid large and excessive purchases.

Discounts Can Be Expensive

Try to avoid 1+1 deals or other discounts, especially when it comes to vegetables and fruits that will quickly lose their freshness. This marketing method causes products to quickly end up in the trash and it is only suitable for those who will actually have time to cook with the ingredients before they expire.

List Precisely

We recommended planning weekly meals in advance and buying according to a pre-made list. Don't rely on memory and don't make spontaneous purchases - think about the whole week and be precise. In addition to reducing food waste, it will also save you money and time.
