iVillage: Ways to Save Money at the Supermarket

5 of 11

Ditch the Cart

For quick supermarket trips, opt for the hand-held basket, says Woroch, since large carts encourage us to fill them to the brim with things we want but don’t really need. Ungainly baskets on the other hand, keep us in line since there’s only so much available space. “The heavier the basket becomes, the faster you will realize you are adding unnecessary items,” she says, making it easier to resist that second box of cookies. Plus, you’ll be less tempted to meander through the aisles, losing willpower as you go. “The longer we stay in a store the more money we spend,” says Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert, a leading food industry analyst, writer and trend-watcher. So anything that gets you in and out is a good thing.
