In a world where grocery shopping can be both a necessity and a budgetary challenge, a savvy chef from New York has shared a revolutionary trick that is sweeping through social media like wildfire.

Will Coleman, the mastermind behind the ingenious “6 to 1 grocery shopping method,” claims that this technique is a game-changer for families looking to save big on their supermarket bills.

Coleman, known for his culinary expertise and popular social media channels, @chefwillco on TikTok and Instagram, recently revealed the method in a viral video that has garnered nearly a million views.

The method has been dubbed a life saver for those looking to make grocery shopping more efficient and cost-effective.

“You grab six veggies, five fruits, four proteins, three starches, two sauces or spreads and one fun thing for yourself,” Coleman said.

“This makes grocery shopping way easier, way cheaper and you get in and out, so you’re not there all day long.”

Coleman, in an interview with People, explained the rationale behind the method.

“It’s designed in a way to cut costs because when you’re shopping in the store, some of the higher ticket items are prepackaged or processed items,” Coleman explained.

“Fruits and vegetables are usually on the lower end of things and they can stretch beyond one meal. You can be way more creative about what you’re putting out in the kitchen, and of course, it’s healthier as well.

“I love it so much because it’s so flexible. You can do this for a household of two or four or six or eight. It doesn’t matter. You can make it work for yourself and the way to go about that is to just grab a few more of the single items you choose in each category for your family.”
