Frugal Friday – Food tips

Some frugal-friendly food tips:

  • Check your pantry to see what you already have. I have purchased items I thought I needed, only to find they were stuffed in the back of the pantry….NEVER AGAIN! 

  • Make a price book, and frequently refer to it. 

  • Clean out your refrigerator, it will help you put away groceries, and again, it will help you see what you have.  Try to do it once a week.

  • Shop alone, if at all possible.  It’ll save you time and potentially a lot of frustration.  (Boy, oh boy, don’t get me started on trying to take my Autistic son to the store!)

  • Make it yourself.  Ban those convenience foods! Make whatever you can make yourself.

  • Use Super Cook.com.  This site is awesome!  You can simply enter the stuff you have on hand and it’ll pull up recipe matches for you. 

  • Grow a garden.  Even if you only have a porch, you can plant a couple of tomato plants….and fresh grown tomatoes are the BEST.  EVER.  Besides being healthier, tastier, and more frugal, it’s also very satisfying to harvest.

    Thanks for the tips! (and I TOTALLY sympathize on taking your child to the store. My daughter's the same way too – impossible! lol)
