    Week 2 Focus: Shopping Stick to Your Grocery List
    What are some of the things you typically buy that you weren't on your list? How do you think you might limit some of those purchases?

    Candy, see spot save items and target and clearance racks. When I walk them I buy items but when I stick to my list and go straight to groceries I save more. Knowing what I already have helps keep my impulse buys in check

    Week 1 Focus: Planning Keep a Food Inventory
    Are there food items you have been better about using up and not wasting since you started keeping an inventory of what's in your fridge?

    The pantry and counter are easier to track than the fridge. Lots of food that I can’t see or remember we have in the freezer and fridge. The app helps with expiration dates but it’s another task to do.

    Leftovers, and we can cut our recipe in half instead of wasting food.
