13. Don’t buy something simply because you have a coupon for it. Clip coupons, but only for what you need. You can use the newspaper or print out coupons online.
14. Choose meat cuts you can serve in different dishes to avoid waste. Round steak, for example, is great in stew, stir-fry, Stroganoff, chili and even hamburgers if you have a meat grinder.
15. Plant a vegetable garden. It’s a funy hobby that keeps you active and puts food on your table. Those without back yards can participate in community gardens, or just grow herbs on your windowsill.
16. When grocery shopping, stick to your list. Impulse buys really add up – and they can easily bust your budget.
17. Don’t buy trendy foods. They’re more expensive and less versatile than real food.
18. Make your shopping list while checking your store’s weekly specials. Plan your menus to include these specials.
19. Stock up on discounted foods that have a long freezer life or shelf life.
