We are all so busy. Many of us barely get to make a list of groceries we need. Often, without a list to follow, you will end up buying things you want instead things you need. That isn’t always a good thing. Impulse buying is the supermarkets best friend.

Don’t be your own worst enemy! Take a look at these ten tips, and then watch how they change your next shopping trip. Be mindful of supermarket shortcuts, like rotisserie chicken and pre-made meals. Fat content on those time savers may carry a heavy caloric load.

Buy whole foods, stay away from the center aisles where most processed foods live, and actually look at the prices on endcap “sales”. If you stick to a plan both you, and your family, will have a healthier nutritious life.
