03.Avoid the shopping traps

To take action against supermarkets’ tricks:

  •  Stock up on all the basics once a month at your local discount store, such as Aldi. 
  •  Use unit pricing, as sometimes the biggest packet isn’t the cheapest. 
  •  Go online to check specials for the week at your local supermarkets and plan your meals accordingly. 
  •  Avoid doing small top-up shops when you can, as they will result in more unplanned purchases. Research by Roy Morgan shows that the more often you shop the more you spend. 
  •  Buy locally whenever you just need milk and bread, to avoid temptation.
