If you have a weekly menu, you will most likely do a more organized and tighter shopping list, which will allow you to shop better and without overloading. Always take your shopping list to the supermarket. It is better to go more often to reduce the volume of shopping. Look for seasonal products rather than buying fruits or vegetables that have had to go through an accelerated ripening process.
