You want to curb your consumption but you don’t know how to do it? The solution is right there, in your Smartphone! You can now better manage your budget with these 5 apps.


1. Too good to go

This app allows you to collect unsold products from merchants around you. Concretely, with Too good to go (too good to be thrown away), you can buy at low prices, food that cannot be put on sale the next day (pastries, dishes, etc.).

In addition to the financial benefit, for any unsold meal you buy, you help preserve the planet. How ? Well, a purchased basket weighs on average 500 grams, which is equivalent to 1 kg of CO2! In other words, it is:

  • 40 minutes of electricity in a family home
  • 7.9 km of car driving
  • A light on for a whole week!
