Saving money starts at home: Before you go shopping, think about exactly which items you need. Good planning will help you avoid being tempted to make expensive impulse purchases later on. With Bring! you can easily create a shopping list for every occasion and store.
Tip #1: Create a shopping list
Has this ever happened to you? You buy five bananas, only to find out when you get home that your flatmate has already bought a week's supply.
To avoid such mispurchases in the future, it's best to share a Bring! shopping list. That way, each of you can see exactly who buys which items and when. This not only prevents food waste, but also saves money.
Tip #2: Share your shopping list with others
There are also a few traps to look out for in the shop itself. Supermarkets have come up with numerous tricks to ensure their customers buy as much and as expensively as possible. For example, expensive products are usually at eye level. You will find the cheaper alternatives at the bottom of the shelf.
Compare prices per quantity and try to keep distances short. Shops are often set up like a maze so that customers see as many products as possible when shopping and are constantly tempted.
