Grocery Hack: Try The Six-To-One Method!

This may not save you money!

A chef on TikTok is going viral for his grocery shopping “hack.”

His name is Will Coleman, and earlier this month his “six-to-one” grocery shopping method went viral.  (Sometimes it’s also called the five-four-three-two-one method.)

The idea is that when you’re making your grocery shopping list, or you’re at the grocery store, you should aim to get six vegetables, five fruits, four proteins, three starches, two sauces or spreads, and one fun thing for yourself.

It’s supposed to make grocery shopping easier and faster, help save you money, and challenge you to make more home-cooked meals with a variety of ingredients.

He says the method works regardless of your family size or whether you’re on a special diet like keto, you can adapt it to your needs. 


If you’re looking to use the 6 to 1 grocery shopping method and are curious if it’ll work for your family, then this video is for you.
