Make sure you have all the necessary kitchen essentials by watching this video:

The biggest impact I have had on reducing my grocery budget every time I go to the store, is where I am shopping. I try to do the majority of my food shopping at my local discount market. In the western US we have a regional grocery chain called Winco, which is an employee owned chain that is super low-frills in order to reduce costs. Apparently they also source directly from manufacturers and farmers to source food which results in great prices on most produce. Another win at Winco is the bulk bins, which can often be the most cost effective way to buy spices, candy, and dried goods. Another overlooked plus is the way the store formats its price labels – almost every label in the store includes a price per oz which greatly reduces the mental strain of comparison shopping and finding the best deal. I know that chains like this are not available in lots of parts of the country, especially in larger cities. But investigating in local or regional discount markets can make a big impact if you can find a good fit for your location and lifestyle.

That list at the start…. Zero. Sorted 🤣

Rick Baker 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

The tips
Plan ahead – make a list, make big batches and freeze half

When buying items priced per item (ea.) make sure you're getting the biggest one

Have in mind at least 2 recipes when shopping, no shopping blind

Focus on things you buy once but make many meals eg. curry paste, grains, frozen veggies

Always eat 1 hour before shopping, never shop hungry (or tipsy/drunk)

Have a plan for splitting grocery expenses with roommates etc.

Go to local farmers markets, butchers etc.

Deep sales on expensive items like meat? Buy in bulk and freeze it

Look into paper products, toiletries online to save you trips to the store and the temptation

Find starches that can help clean out the fridge of leftovers. Ex pizza crust, risotto rice, quiche

My Grocery sin is shopping when hungry. I always try to eat first on the commute to the store or bring a snack/money for coffee and cookie because a hungry girl over spends.

Omfg. I went to Trader's Joes after drinking and I was in heaven.

Best, cheapest and safest cleaning solution for all surfaces: White vinegar and baking soda. You can add a drop of essential oil if you want although it's not necessary. It cleans as well or better than what you can buy at the store at a fraction of the cost (white vinegar is less than $1 a gallon in some places). For floors, I put vinegar in warm water, sprinkle baking soda and scrub. Voila! Works great for grout and burnt pans (burnt pans may require two applications and some elbow grease.

Can you put jelly or chocolate in a quiche?

Nicole Bureau 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Make a list and stick to it unless you forgot to put something on the list or if it's a supper sale of something you will use soon.

Raquel Ladron de Guevara 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

I have a totally different problem, I do not have enough room to store frizzed food. I live in a very very small flat with 8 cubic feet fridge…

Aoibhin Quinn 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

I'd also say if you are comfortable with seasoning your own food, buying spices in bulk and using them accordingly is so much easier (and probably cheaper!) than buying things like curry paste. That said, I now have way too many spice jars and they don't fit on my shelf anymore…

Adéla 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

It always feel amazing, when I’m watching some of your videos guys and realise I’m already doing all these things 🙂

Always, always check the clearance shelves! I've gotten so much half off just because the box is dented

I HAVE to eat meat with every meal and cannot have legumes and beans because of allergies. I'm tired of people like you saying stupid things like people are selfish and hurting the environment because of eating meat.

Deean Yim 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

i like to buy food in cans. it last long time. i like chef boyardee raviolies and beefaroni. they are just about little over dollar at walmart. i like mushroom soup in cans, and i buy "great value" which is walmart brand, and they are really cheap sometimes like 67 cents. i don't buy fresh produce almost always. i think cans are quick lunch at work and at home, it's convienient, you just open the cans and they are delicious.

Sandra Arnold-Lobato 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

I don't know about other countries, but in switzerland theres always a price per 100g its in a corner and really small… But it really helps to find the product with the best value… Then if some of it turns out to be disgusting, remember for next time and try the next cheapest one… That way you can still get good food without buying the most expensive one.

UltraHuman 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Lol I've been showing my brother some of your videos on food since he has been living on gas station fried chicken since living on his own. Almost none of those things at the beginning of the video apply to him. He has problems like, "does everything you eat come in a brightly colored box? Do you head straight into the middle of the grocery store and don't know where the produce section even is?"

Catherine Xu 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

I always make a shopping list before going shopping and I also make a meal list for a whole week so that I know what ingredients I really need for the week. If the quality are the same, I prefer to choose Asian supermarkets cos it is cheaper.

Daffy Dill 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Yipes. Guilty. (but not the shopping drunk. Just hungry 😉

Ashley Ness 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Why do they talk with the perspective of “you”? You do …. (in an accusatory tone).

Lilianne Weinhandl 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Before I go to the supermarket I always look up what's on sale in the section of the supermarket with fresh ingredients that week. Then I decide what I could cook with those items and then I make a grocery list. I know many people who don't look at what's on sale or even don't make a grocery list. If you make a grocery list and stick to it you'll safe lots of money, even if you don't look up what's on sale.

Tanisha Goveas 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Going to local small business owners is a lot cheaper than going to supermarkets or megamarts or chain stores… yes, sometimes it does mean having to go to more than one place to buy all your products, but it still saves money… if you go there often enough they recognise you and give you discounts, free samples, hints about what is the freshest thing to buy, they may even let you buy things on credit(great for month end crunches or when youre in a hurry and dont have your card on you)

Where I used to stay there was an agricultural college which was always selling things like vegetables, fruits, honey as well as candles, soap, aloe gel, etc for super cheap…. Try to find one near you and check if they sell products

Also try to grow your own herbs… it may take a couple tries to get it right but it's super helpful…

Try to cut down on the amount of meat you're eating.. or find cheaper alternatives… for example where I live chicken is pretty expensive, but duck is cheaper and fish and prawns are super cheap…. I started to eat more of fish now. the same goes for veggies and fruits… a lot of seasonal produce which you may never have heard of are sold super cheap and are incredibly delicious and healthy

Carry your own containers and bags because some supermarkets charge for these things.

If you live close enough to a farm buy fresh milk and finish it before it goes bad.

Do not buy ready- made salad dressing…. not only is it expensive and unnecessary, its full of calories… make your own dressings using simple things like olive oil, molasses, etc…This also works for things like cake mixes, soup, pancake batter, pasta sauce or peanut butter and depending on how much free time you have even things like butter, jams and jellies

get a zoodle maker because you can save yourself the cost of pasta just by using veggies instead.

Plan all your meals of the day before shopping because even if you cook in bulk for lunch and dinner you will still have breakfast and some mid day snacks left… and you will invariably end up buying something to go with your daily coffee.

P.S sorry about typing errors, grammatical mistakes, etc.

If you're buying 'treats', buy for guests, not for greed.

Purple Worm 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Buy cheap, local root veg in big packages, e.g., carrots, onions, beat roots, parsnips, cabbage, etc. I often tend to forget how many tasty dishes you can cook with simple ingredients like carrots and onions. Yesterday I made a huge pot of bean stew from what I already had at home – black beans, onions, garlic, tomatoes, paprika and Worcestershire sauce. Simple, delicious and cost me almost nothing. Served with ray bread, melted butter and dill.

alex wintermeyer 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

download a price compare app, and compare the prices of products by kilos or grams, not by package

Freeze high quality meat-I'm pretty sure Gordon Ramsey just gave him self a stroke over that comment…

Blue Jedi 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

as someone who works in retail, I'm shocked at how many people don't plan their meals and snacks. They don't buy in season. They don't buy in bulk stuff they use all the time and buy in bulk stuff they won't use before it spoils.

Luminositymusic 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Button. – Is that it? Don’t go to the store tipsy and have a snack thirty minutes before you shop. Thx-

Sherry Wieler 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Buy good quality spices and use less rather than cheap bulk spices that barely add flavour. Shop the outer ring of the grocery store, most stores have the produce, freezer and fridge sections on perimeter and processed foods in the isles.

MegaHotdiggity 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Aah! Aah! Too quick with very good tips!

Matt Ryu 10/09/2021 - 6:55 AM

Freeze high quality meet? Gordon Ramsay is rolling in his… you can hear him screaming

Lol the ad was for one of those scammy get rich quick schemes. Hmm….

Well managed feed lots aren’t a huge factor in terms of impacts on the environment.
