Food is an expensive and is essential to our everyday lives. Here are some helpful tips on how to cut down those expenses.

  1. Make lunch and bring it to work! Simple “brown bag” lunches are sandwiches, soups, and salads. You can even bring leftovers from last nights’ dinner. The average person spends anywhere from 5-10 dollars a day on a “fast food” lunch. If you packed your lunch every week day you could save an estimated $1,680 per year!

  2. Make a grocery list before you go to the store. By doing this you will be able to eliminate the things you want and get the things you NEED. That way you’re not blindly grabbing items off the shelf. Another way to save is to avoid going to the grocery store hungry! When I do that, I find that all I get is what I’m craving at the moment. Be a stickler to your grocery list!! Buy off-brand products …they are just as good and cheaper!

  3. Plan your meals a week or two in advance. Make a chart and stick it on the fridge. If you already know that Tuesday is “Spaghetti night” then you won’t be doing a last minute stop at a drive thru or a sit-down restaurant.
