Action, delicious & sustainable food shopping (DAVID)

Are you looking to trim your grocery bill while still enjoying fresh, high-quality food? One saving strategy is to capitalize on supermarkets' special days when foods nearing their expiration dates are heavily discounted. Specifically, Saturdays and Mondays offer prime opportunities to snag bargains on products that are close to their best-before dates. Here's how you can make the most of these special shopping days:

Saturdays Afternoon: As the weekend draws to a close, supermarkets often mark down perishable items such as fresh fish, meat, bread, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. These items typically have a short shelf life and are at their freshest just before their best-before dates. By shopping on Saturday afternoons, you can take advantage of these discounts and score great deals on items that are still perfectly good to eat.

Mondays Afternoon: Mondays are especially ripe for savings because it's the day after Sunday—a day when many supermarkets are closed or operate on reduced hours. As a result, there's often a surplus of fresh food items left over from the weekend that need to be sold quickly. Supermarkets like Coop frequently offer these products at 50% off or more to clear out inventory and make room for new stock. By shopping on Monday afternoons, you'll have access to a wide selection of discounted goods, including meats, veggies, dairy, and baked goods.

By taking advantage of these special shopping days, you can not only save money but also reduce food waste by giving these perfectly good items a second chance. So next time you're planning a grocery run, consider scheduling it for a Saturday or Monday afternoon and see how much you can save while still enjoying fresh, delicious food.

Happy shopping!
