Buy better to waste less

© Xavier-Claes

Sometimes our cupboards are overflowing with perishable goods. However, managing your food stocks is one of the keys to wasting less. But only buying what you need is easier said than done. Learning a few easy habits helps you to avoid unnecessary purchases.


3 anti-waste habits at the supermarket

Plan your meals in advance and make a shopping list: You will limit your impulse buys and save time.

Go for loose fruit and vegetables: You will buy exactly the right quantity and cut down on packaging.

Do not do the shopping when you are hungry: It is a funny thing, but studies have shown that we buy too much and make poorer choices on an empty stomach.
