Tips to Save Money at Longos
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. Limit Shopping Trips
Limit your trips to the store when possible. Get what you need for about a week when the store’s flyer goes live. Try to resist making stops for additional groceries when you have plenty at home.
3. Buy in Bulk
Buy in bulk (but have a plan). When items that you use frequently go on sale, don’t be afraid to buy a little extra as long as you can use them before their expiration date.
