  • Decide which recipes you would like to cook for several meals.
  • Before going to the grocery store: check your fridge, check your schedule, ask your family what they'd like to eat.
  • Sort your grocery list according to type of food: produce, meat, dairy, and dry goods.
  • Buy produce that can be added to many different meals, so the leftovers from one recipe won't go to waste.
