Look at the flyers for your local stores
The first thing you should do is look at the flyers for your local grocery store. While you look through them, pay attention to what’s on sale and make a note of what you want to buy that is advertised. Make sure you aren’t just buying things for the sake of buying things on sale. Think hard about what you really need and what would actually make for a good deal.
