Maybe we're just weird or we eat differently than most people, but the food budget is one of the most controlable things our household. All it takes is a little focus and creativity. In this episode of Surviving on Shoestrings, I share my methods
and strategies to tame the food cost beast.
Methods such as: A Cost Book, sale buying with discount coupons, doing away with unhealthy food and convenience food,more affordable alternatives, gardening, harvesting and preserving, purchasing generic items, damaged or sell-by-date sales, delicatessens ends, consuming even more plant based meals,consuming more soups, one dish wonders and stir-fry, make dishes from scratch, re-purposing left-overs, make use of every little thing, frugal snacking makes sense, serving sizes, product comparison and exactly the best ways to begin bulk purchasing.
We've had to stretch what we've had for so long - that I hope our lessons learned can help you too!
