Shop around for bargains
Buy bulk where possible; share bulk purchases with family and friends
Buy seasonal fruits and vegetables; not only will you save money but you will get fresher, tastier produce and contribute to the reduction of your carbon footprint.
Use your leftovers
Draw up meal plans and budgets; proper planning reduces costs.
Single portion items, for instance, single serving tubs of fruit or yoghurt is often more expensive than buying a large tub of yoghurt. Decant the yoghurt into reusable containers if you need to travel with it.
Ready-to-eat cereals cost more than double the price of maize meal, oats and mabele porridge. Save money by making your own muesli instead of store-bought options.
