1. Prepare a grocery list beforehand.
It will help you avoid chaos - and temptation to buy unnecessary things.
2. Prepare dinner and job snacks yourself.
Do you spend $10 at the company canteen, or $3 for a sandwich? Calculate the monthly food expenditure, and consider reducing it.
3. Plant your own herbs.
Instead of buying herbs, plant your own ones on your balcony, window sill or in your garden.
4. Freeze food excesses, seasonal fruit and vegetables.

It has a great fatty acids content, and is much cheaper than olive.

To avoid overpaying, see which store offers your favorite products at the cheapest price. Check your local web stores too.
7. More is cheaper sometimes.
Buy products such as rice or groats in larger packages. Otherwise, you can overpay significantly.
8. Try not to throw food away.
Plan your purchases wisely, do not buy an excessive amount of products, such as meat or yoghurts, which have a short expiration date.
9. Make homemade preserves.
It not only allows you to save up, but also guarantees that you eat healthy.
10. Cash instead of card Take cash for shopping.
That way you can track your expenditures better.
11. Take note of expiration dates.
In your fridge and on the shelves on which you store preserves or cans, put those with the shortest expiration date at the front. This ensures that the products are used before it expires.
12. Finish your meals the next day.
You were eating outdoor, but didn't finish your meal? Take it out. After all, it can be warmed up tomorrow.
