Shop alone if you can, and be sure that you aren’t hungry when you go shopping — hungry shoppers find it hard to stick to the list!
And finally, be flexible — if you see an unadvertised special that is too good to pass up, change your plan — add that food to your list. Sometimes grocers need to make room in a hurry, and mark staple items down for quick sale. Other times, perishable foods like meat, milk, or produce are marked down for quick sale. Be sure to use these up quickly, and throw away anything that smells or tastes bad.
