Many Are Calling The “6-to-1” Method of Grocery Shopping a Genius Way to Save Money

Buying groceries these days can be a real headache  with food prices skyrocketing, making it a challenge for people worldwide to manage their dinner budgets.

Yet, despite the relentless inflation squeezing everyone's grocery bills, social  media has rallied together and devised a brilliant solution to save some serious cash. Enter the "6-5-4-3-2-1" method: simply buy six veggies, five fruits, four proteins, three starches, two  sauces or spreads, and one fun item.

It's a clever strategy because it gives you the flexibility to choose  what you want while still providing some structure. Admittedly, this approach might not suit everyone, especially  larger families, but it's adaptable enough to fit the needs of many.

From Eat This, Not That:

The 6-to-1 method guidelines are wide enough to give shoppers the freedom to choose the foods they enjoy most from each category. At the same time, the hack also sets a clear limit on how much customers should buy at the grocery store and prevents them from spending too much.

"This makes grocery shopping way easier, way cheaper, and you get in and out so you're not there all day long. This has worked for me, my homies, and everybody on social media [who] has tried it," Coleman said in the January TikTok.

Coleman's 6-to-1 hack has become something of a sensation on TikTok as scores of other creators have tried out the method and raved about the results.

"I've been using your method and it honestly helps," one user commented on the video.

"I love this, thank you. I have been doing this for the last few weeks and it [has] been amazing," another wrote.

Some fellow TikTokers have even posted their own videos trying out the 6-to-1 method and were more than pleased by the results. One user, @fashionistalala, used the hack while shopping at the discount grocer Lidl in January and reported paying less than $70 for the full haul.
