7 Tips to Become an Expert at Grocery Shopping
Many things affect shopping behaviour. Budget, dietary preference, priorities, changing needs, product values & more. Here are some expert tips to become a pro shopper especially when shopping Indian grocery in Germany.
1. Go with a List and Budget it.
Best way to keep your expenses in check and not forget what you came for.
2. Don’t shop when Hungry
Otherwise there is a big chance you will end up giving in to cravings and buy things you didn’t even need.
3. Fridge Lists are the Best
Keeping a sticky note on fridge to add items that you remember all through the week is a great time saver and best way to keep a track of what’s out of stock at home.
4. Explore In-store Brands
Sometimes supermarkets have some brand items exclusive to the store. These usually cost less and are of good quality too.
5. Be on the Lookout for Offers
Discounts on individual products or the whole bill save you a few bucks. Some supermarkets also email store offers or coupons to loyal customers. Become a part of their loyalty program or sign up for their newsletter.
6. Once a Month vs Once a Week list
Divide your list into items you can buy once for whole month and the perishables you buy fresh every week. That way you can buy some things in bulk and save more.
7. Know your Store
Try to schedule your shopping trips on those days in the week, when your supermarket receives fresh stock of fruits and vegetables. A great example is the Spice Village supermarket in Berlin which gets a supply of fresh vegetables, fruits and seasonal fruits like mango regularly. This makes it the ideal place for buying Indian grocery in Germany.
