Tips to Save Money at Colemans
1. Plan your Meals
In order to save time in your busy schedule, you can plan out what you will cook for the week ahead and be prepared with a list of the necessary ingredients. The first step we recommend taking when meal-planning is exploring your local grocery store’s deals of the week. Get a sense of what is on sale and then decide what you want to cook, based on what products you can save on that week. Purchasing cookbooks are not always necessary for getting creative in your kitchen. You can find many free recipes online or by following your favourite food influencers on social media. Try choosing recipes that have common ingredients typically found in your fridge or cupboard – or better yet, ones that often go on sale!
After you have decided on the meals you want to make, you can turn your master ingredient list into a grocery list. If you use a digital flyer app like reebee, you can save the current deals directly to your in-app shopping list. Make sure your shopping trip flows smoothly and efficiently by grouping the ingredients by where they are located in the grocery store. The last step includes spending some hours prepping once you have your groceries. Slice and dice produce, then store it in the fridge for when you’re ready to assemble your meal.
2. Get Cooking at Home
Wholesome ingredients for home-cooked recipes will end up costing you less than pre-made meals or convenience foods. It is also more nutritious if you cook using fresh ingredients. Another added benefit to home-cooked meals is you can get creative with leftovers to reduce your household’s food waste. Click here for ideas to get you started!
3. Buy Seasonal Produce
Fruits and vegetables that are in season are often supplied by local farmers at the time they were harvested, making them more accessible and less expensive – but always check the label to see where the product is from. Seasonal produce is not only fresher, tastier and more nutritious but also cheaper! Shopping for in-season produce can help you eat more locally, maintain a healthy diet and stay on budget. In order to have local produce (such as berries) on hand all year round, you can buy in bulk during the summer months and freeze quantities over the winter.
