Write a shopping lists that work for me?
Many of us often pop into the shop uncertain if we already have enough food like milk, bread and potatoes so we end up guessing and buy it 'just in case'. A shopping day can quickly turn into bin day as our perfectly edible old food gets thrown away to make space for the new.
A shopping list is an easy way to help you buy only what you need from your food shop which not only helps protect our planet it also helps you stick to your budget too.
By following a few simple steps to create a shopping list that works for you, you'll be able to save time in the shop and avoid doubling up on food you already have at home.
