12 Secrets to Spending Less at the Grocery Store
Tip 3: Keep a well-stocked pantry.
A well-stocked pantry is the best way to resist the urge to go out on those nights when you’re not sure what’s for dinner. With a few basics you can probably pull together a healthy, tasty meal in the same amount of time it would take you to go out (and for less money, too!). So always check to see what staples need replenishing or just write them down on your shopping list as soon as you use something up. Besides basics like olive oil and flour, make sure to keep things like canned beans, pasta and canned tuna on hand so you can quickly create a delicious dinner.
