You wouldn’t believe this actress goes to market regularly to save money on groceries

Who would have thought that Filipina-French TV personality Solenn Heussaff is also the type of person who would go to local markets to save money on groceries?

On her recent YouTube video, Heussaff showed her subscribers how she does her grocery in Cartimar Market in Pasay City as if she is not a well-known personality in the Philippines.

“This is something that I do as often as I can,” Heussaff says, referring to doing her own grocery.

“They say, ‘whatever you put in your mouth is what you are going to look like’. So I like to buy my ingredients fresh and in the market. I love to go and buy my own stuff and see what I am eating so I am not going to send someone to do it,’ she adds.

Wearing a cap, a pair of sunglasses, and a face mask, Heussaff went to Cartimar Market to do some grocery shopping.

“People have been asking me, ‘How do you eat healthy and not spend so much money because things are so expensive?’ Yes, vegetables can be expensive, especially if you go to big groceries or big supermarkets, but if you go to the market in the morning on a weekend, trust me, you’ll find really great deals,” she said in the video.

In her blog, Heussaff also shared a few tips on buying your groceries from a local market.

“1. Make a meal plan for the week so I know what ingredients I need to buy.

“2. Write a list of everything I need, divided into categories (meat, seafood, vegetables, etc), so I don’t have to keep going back to the same area if I miss anything.

“3. Eat something before I go in. Otherwise, I’m gonna end up buying more than what I need cause I’m so hungry. Haha.

“4. Have a budget—and stick to it!

“5. Ask for different deals so I can save money. Also, be a good suki,” Heussaff enumerated.
