Tip 1: Choose longer shelf-life options for off season produce.
In-season produce is often cheaper and fresher, so it’s best to eat what’s in season most of the time. However, if you’re after something that is off-season then save some money by opting for frozen and even canned varieties if these fruits and vegetables.
Tip 2: Cut your loyalty to your preferred store.
You can save a lot of money by playing the field. Smart shoppers follow the bargains between the big two supermarkets, and even smarter shoppers combine this approach by purchasing the bulk of their groceries at Aldi. Aldi consistently comes out on top in shopping basket cost comparisons and their “off-name” products are known to have won global awards, so the quality is good also.
