Get the most for your food budget!
There are many ways to save money on the foods that you eat.
The three main steps are planning before you shop, purchasing the items at the best price, and preparing meals that stretch your food dollars.
Plan, plan, plan!
Before you head to the grocery store, plan your meals for the week. Include meals like stews, casseroles, or stir-fries, which “stretch” expensive items into more portions. Check to see what foods you already have and make a list for what you need to buy.
Get the best price
Check the local newspaper, online, and at the store for sales and coupons. Ask about a loyalty card for extra savings at stores where you shop. Look for specials or sales on meat and seafood — often the most expensive items on your list.
