This year’s budget is hard-hitting, to say the least. To survive the brutal budget calls for two main strategies: prudence in spending, and saving. For strategy one, finding outlets that sell quality yet affordable items is key. To help with that, here are budget busters, beginning with a list of the top seven supermarkets (some are available countrywide) that are easy on your pocket:
For those who are pressed for time and tech savvy, you can choose to do your shopping online. Jumia is fast coming out as the largest online retailer with whole range of products for the house and office, and they do deliveries as well.
Chandarana supermarket’s Foodplus, which is a store for groceries and foodstuff that offers the goods at lower prices for online shoppers.
Buying from wholesalers is also a plus. The famous Kamukunji market in Nairobi provides a wide array of products – especially for household and clothing needs. Eastleigh area is no longer dominated by shopping malls for clothes only; a number of entrepreneurs have thriving wholesale stores stocking household goods. Prices are competitive since the shops are many, and the area is easy to access using public transport.
This is just one was of beating the budget blues. Do you have others to share? Please add to the list in our comments section, and together, we shall survive and thrive.
