10 Grocery Shopping Tips That Will Earn You Big Savings
A Whole Foods recently opened up in our neighborhood--the fervor with which it was met was akin to an H&M designer collaboration frenzy of Lagerfeldian proportions. The gorgeous new temple to all things healthy is a grocery shopping dream: wide aisles, gorgeous produce and $39 shrimp rings. Wait. That last part isn't exactly dreamy.
I understand that they're sustainable and hyper-fresh, but so are the shrimp from the fishmonger a few blocks away, and they cost a fraction of the price. To the un-skilled, it's hard to shop a mega-store like Whole Foods without ringing up a grocery bill that's a bazillion dollars--but it IS possible, with a few smart techniques and a bit of discipline (you don't exactly need those artisanally baked scones or rare hybrid citrus fruits). Read on for a few smart shopping tips that will teach you what to buy where, what to skip and when to splurge.
