Make a list with meals in mind and buy no more than you expect to use.
Plan your meals
Make a meal plan each week. Plan for a “lazy night” where you eat out or eat up leftovers. Keep a running list of meals that your household enjoys. Try using the free Cozi app to keep track of your plans and lists.
Shop at home first
Check your fridge, freezer and cupboards for any ingredients you already have before you go shopping.
