MONEY SAVING MEALS
Plan your menu a week in advance and only buy groceries that you need (don't forget to take along your grocery coupons for further great savings).
Buy "No Name Brands" and fruit and vegetables that are in season.
Collaborate with family and friends - buy in bulk and then share the groceries and the savings.
Date and label all items in your freezer and then use the groceries before they expire or need to be thrown away.
Visually display how much you have budgeted for groceries for the month / week - then update it daily by subtracting what you have spent so far.
Make several containers of food like stews, casseroles, soups, rice and muffins. They freeze well, save you electricity and are a handy standby when you are in a rush.
(You'll also save money by not having to rush out for last minute fast food take-away or convenience foods)
Eat before you shop and remember to look at the top and the bottom of the shelves for the best bargains.
Stock your pantry with tinned and dried food - that way you'll have the groceries to whip up a wholesome meal in minutes.
Use leftovers creatively as part of the ingredients for another meal or even as a packed lunch for work (great money saving tip and much healthier than fast food or vending machines).
Money saving meals - well within your budget and your lifestyle!
