How much do you spend on food each month? Do you wish you didn’t spend so much each month or each week at the store? We cannot control how much the stores charge for milk, eggs and other essentials we use. We need to think with our head when shopping. Not with our stomachs. Here are some ways to cut back the costs of the food costs including coupons, gardening, cooking from scratch.
Many stores have their own apps on smartphones as well as coupons on those apps to use. Make sure to take advantage of those apps. There are coupon sites as well.
Have a Vegetable Garden
Start a vegetable garden in your home and it does not have to be a big garden at all. One can put tomato plants in buckets if you want too. Depending on the vegetable, you are able to freeze them in plastic bags so you can use them later.
Cooking and Baking from Scratch
Do not always cook from a box. Many things are cheaper and taste better when made from scratch. Once you supply yourself with the essentials to baking you can do many recipes. Also for supper instead of making box mashed potatoes try using real potatoes, milk, and butter.
Good Luck with changing your food cutting costs ways. It can be good to follow a blog online that posts the weekly deals, grocery shop based on the sale ads, cook based on what is in your pantry. Even you save a little each week it is better than none. It takes the time to change your shopping habits.
