To save money while shopping is possible. All you (as a shopper) have to do is to start buying various items in different locations. Avoid buying them all in one single place, for example, in your nearest supermarket.
Some grocery stores sell a certain number of items for higher prices, although a Store around the corner might sell a much cheaper option of the same product. Here is a list of 7 items you can skip next time you do your shopping.
1. Presliced Fruit and Vegetables
This is another item you don ot need to waste your money on. Consumers who prefer prechopped and presliced vegetables and fruit spend an extra 35%. To avoid unnecessary expenses buy whole fruit or veggies – not only will they save a third of what you were planning to spend on them, they will also taste better and stay fresh longer.
2. Presliced Meat Products
This is just a marketing approach helping supermarkets make profits instead of loss. Most meats can be kept in a fridge no longer than 5 days. If meat expires, the store gets rid of it. In order to make up for the loss, sellers offer other meats that they precube and preslice and then sell them but for a considerably higher price.
