  1. This is great advice! I never shop on an empty stomach and I always stick to my list. I limit my shopping to twice a month, except for occasional trips for 1-2 items, like bananas! I also discovered that almond milk has a much longer expiration date than regular milk, so we usually have 1 carton of regular milk and lots of unsweetened almond milk.
