My friends and I often complain about how we don’t know how to adult. Taxes, work, finding a place to live, even grocery shopping can be daunting tasks you have to face after high school or college. But if there’s anything “Adult-like” I do understand, it’s grocery shopping! Here’s a few tips to make sure you grocery shop like an adult.
1. Make a List
Grocery shopping seems like a simple enough task that you can go in blind. But when you’re a “virgin grocery shopper”, (so to speak) you really need some guidelines to limit you. Without a grocery list, you might overspend on junk food, forget to buy what you really need or, often times, both! Just like athletes don’t go into a game without having studied their game plan, you can’t begin your grocery shopping career without any guidelines. Trust me, you’ll be a much more productive grocery shopper when you have a list to help you!
