How Pedestrians Shop For Groceries

As a lifelong pedestrian I must tell you lists and simplicity are the best way to tackle grocery shopping. I am guilty of carying my weight in groceries home on numerous occasions, but now I have shifted towards buying small amounts on each trip. When Europeans ago to market they aim to buy fresh essentials such as bread and fruit, rather than stocking up for a winter storm as many of us do here in America. Of all the times I bought mass quantities of groceries I noticed some things went unused, or expired before I had a chance to use the food.

In order to avoid waste I aim to go on several small grocery shopping trips, but since I like shopping maybe this is too enjoyable for me. I restrict myself to only the items on my list, and I have seen my grocery bills go down over the weeks. I only buy what I can comfortably carry for about a mile, which is a good aim for each of my small trips. Websites like amazon are great for stocking up on non-perishables, and items like paper towels and toilet paper.
