Do not overstock your cupboards with food just simply buy for a few days to a week. This way, you use all your food, it stays fresh, you eat healthier and you don’t waste money. In addition, less weight means better fuel consumption.
The best way to shop is by using a mixture of local markets and supermarkets. The markets offer an array of fresh produce, which are usually less than the supermarket prices. The supermarkets offer everything under one roof and you know for certain they will be open at least 5 days a week. We use a variety of supermarkets when travelling through Europe but our favourite is Lidl. It is not only good value for money but it offers consistency on most product ranges as well as items specific to a country.
