Speedy grocery shopping is a great way to save money, but why? Because speedy shopping requires organisation and when you’re organised you’re less likely to shop till your wallet drops.
Speedy shopping is also ideal provided the world’s current COVID-19 situation. It allows you to get in and get out of the supermarket with everything you need.
Here’s how to become a speedy shopper.
1. Make a List and Check it Twice
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: have a shopping list written and ready for when you go grocery shopping.
A shopping list means you’re less likely to be wandering around thinking about what you need and more likely to be through the store and out the door in the blink of an eye.
If you don’t like handwriting a shopping list why not go digital? Our Frugl App allows you to create and customise multiple shopping lists for free. If you’re a Coles or Woolworths shopper it’s perfect for you! Simply download the app from Apple Store or Google Play today.
2. Be Aware of Limits
Because we are in a time where anxieties are high, there are limits on certain products to prevent panic buying. So far we’ve seen it on toilet paper, long life staples such as pasta, rice, oats and more. However these limits are always changing.
So to not get surprised and slowed down in store we suggest keeping up to date on product limits via your supermarket’s website for updates. Coles is frequently updating their page.
3. Card Payments
It’s not an option for everyone, because everyone has their own way of life, but if it is possible use card payments.
Card payments not only save time but they reduce the contact you have with other uncontrolled variables such as cash. For instance, you know where your card has been, but do you know where the change to your cash has been?
To encourage card use at supermarkets Coles and Woolworths have raised the tap-and-go limits to $200.
