Habit 2: Plan Your Perishables

More than half of household food waste occurs because food isn’t used in time.

More careful planning of which perishables you buy can help tackle this.

Whether you use a shopping list, meal plan, smart phone app or website to plan your shop , the key is to make it as simple as possible.  Because simple sticks.

Having a better idea of the bread, fruit, dairy, meat or vegetables you will actually use in the next week is key to stopping food going unused.

Although this habit can be hard to nail down, it is probably the biggest potential money saver, so it is worth a little trial and error.
