You’re at the grocery store, the expenses are adding up, and you feel like the dollars will not stretch all the way through the fruits and vegetables section! Before you give up and head for a cartful of instant noodles, check out these tips to help you get the most out of your food budget:
Eating on a budget starts before you even step foot into the grocery store. Take some time to plan your meals for the week. Then, search through your cabinets. See what you already have and cross it off the list. Glance at the weekly specials at your local supermarket and make a note of what’s on sale. Eating healthy on a budget is possible; it just takes a little planning!
