Some Budget Saving Tips For Grocery Shopping

Updated: Dec 16, 2021

Hi Lovelies! It’s a fresh start to the week but somehow I can’t help thinking the time needs to fast forward to the weekend! Lol I know it’s the Monday feeling! To get us ready for the weekend, I thought I’d share some things that I have to remember when going grocery shopping.

A little back story. Growing up in Africa, back in the day it was mandatory to follow mum to the market to do the monthly grocery shop. She always had everything written down to the detail; it was a little- I mean long list of items to buy for the house, the brand and even the traders name next to it. She made me get used to going with her and now as an adult and a mum myself I understand why. I would need these little tips in the future. Once I asked her why she wrote everything down and she gave me some basic principles of managing your home resources that have helped me and that I’d like to share with you.


You probably only have to do this once, make it a long one that has all the things you want in the house. you can cross out or add as you go on. This way you won't miss an item when you go shopping. There’s nothing worse than queuing up to get into the shops, spending all that time in there only to get home to realise you forgot to buy milk! This always happens to me. Hence the list!
