The big change here is to shop no more than once every 2 weeks. That doesn’t sound like it would help, but it does cut down on impulse purchases since you are in the store less.
Also it forces you to plan your menus and that always helps you save on your grocery bill.
” Cook two or three meals’ worth of each recipe at the beginning of the two-week period, and immediately freeze the extra portions for the second week. Freeze any meat that you won’t be eating within the next 48 hours.
Use up fresh fruits and vegetables first, and then supplement them with just-as-healthy frozen as you get into the second week.”
As for dairy products, you can freeze milk with no problem. Just thaw & shake well before using. Other dairy products can usually last 2 weeks, but be sure to buy the freshest ones by checking the sell by date on them. They will last longer.
His basic philosophy is to shop smart & use up whatever needs to be used up. Sound advice, IMHO.
