Money-saving hacks for your next online grocery shopping

Here are some resourceful advice to optimize your budget on your next digital grocery session with MetroMart.

When the going gets tough, the tough get clever with their groceries. Here are some resourceful advice to optimize your budget on your next digital grocery session with MetroMart – the #1 online grocery delivery service in the Philippines.

Go creatively green. Vegetables are not just for salads or side dishes, they can be the savory main dish. You can make falafel with chickpeas, lentil burgers, mushroom burgers, or use tofu that make great savory substitutes to meat. Start with Meatless Mondays and get creative with your produce.

Can, can! Stocking up on all kinds of canned vegetables and meat products are ideal, and this can include pickled or preserved items in jars too. Most canned vegetables are preserved at the peak of their freshness, and can be bought in bulk and stored for a couple of years. Stock up on canned corn, mushrooms, baby corn, plus sardines, corned beef, tuna, canned chicken and alternate or combine with fresh ingredients.

Bulk up. Buy your vegetables and fruits in bulk and uncut or not yet chopped. For example, a head of lettuce and other salad greens, garlic still in cloves, unpeeled potatoes and carrots. Speaking of bulk buy, stock up on pasta, rice and dried beans, that last long when stored well.

Best batched. Invest a little bit of time to batch prep meals or food prep on the weekends. Dice up garlic, onion and ginger and just take some as you cook. Make different dishes, portion them up, and freeze. This will be a big timesaver, just heat and eat!


Sale-searching. Organize a routine around your grocery runs, and consider doing your groceries online regularly. Maximize promos from apps like MetroMart, that offer FREE Delivery and discounts on products or via bank and ewallet payments. Plus, you can eliminate other expenses such as transportation, parking and time spent when going to the store, when you order online instead.
