So what goes on the list? Well, the everyday basics, of course. Beyond that, it’s smart to create a food plan, since weekly menus help avoid quickie trips to the market. “Walking into the grocery store with a list and your meals for the week planned out will always save you money. You won’t buy impulsively, and you will arrive home with exactly what you need,” says Kelly Hancock, author of the book "Saving Savvy: Smart and Easy Ways to Cut Your Spending in Half and Raise Your Standard of Living... and Giving."
