Teenager Asks Adults for Grocery Shopping Tips


A 19-year-old who just moved into her first place asked REAL adults on Reddit for grocery shopping tips. Here are a few people came up with...

  • Use a list, and don't go down every aisle. It cuts down on impulse purchases. And don't go to the store hungry, or you'll buy EVERYTHING.
  • Pick a protein like chicken or pork, and make it at the start of the week. It's easier than making a main course every night. Then just vary the sides and veggies.
  • Make sure you have a rewards card. It can easily save you 20 or 30 bucks a trip.
  • The expensive brand-name stuff tends to be at eye level, and generic brands are on lower shelves. Sometimes, generic is just as good.
  • Plan out your meals for the week. It saves you money, and you waste less food.
  • A separate trip to Trader Joe's is worth it. They've got a lot of pre-made things and frozen stuff you can base a meal around.
  • If your veggies sit and rot half the time, there's no shame in buying frozen. Some stuff is better fresh though. Like, you can't use frozen spinach in salads.
  • Check the "price per ounce" label below each product. It's how you find the cheapest version of things.
