Smart Saving

Eat What you Buy

Use up leftovers and the ingredients you have before buying more. You'll waste less, save more and may even find a new favorite dish.

Tips to eat what you buysmart-savings.jpg
  • Move food that's likely to spoil soon to the front of the shelf or a designated "eat this first" area each week.
  • Learn the difference between "sell-by", "use-by" and expiration dates. You can rely on your own sight and smell over food dates in most cases.
  • Make casseroles, frittatas, soups and smoothies from leftovers and extra ingredients.
  • Create a list each week of foods that may spoil soon and plan upcoming meals around them.
