President of Karns Foods Scott Karns says many shoppers start buying what they need in advance but a key factor is not to overbuy.

“Make a list and you buy the items on sale, that will save you a lot of money, it is whenever you don’t have that list and you start going rouge in buying things you didn’t really need or maybe or didn’t plan so make a list plan your dinner meal and you can stay on budget,” Karns said.
