Saving Money On Healthy Food


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I ONLY eat egg whites now, not whole eggs. I KNOW I could never throw the yolks away - I am unable to throw away even the teeniest part of food I paid for EVER - ANY drop of food I spent money on WILL be eaten or - better yet - saved for ANOTHER meal. I buy egg whites on sale, take all the packages on the shelf, then get a raincheck so I can get more when I need them and they are NOT on sale. I don't pay more for them than I would for eggs, and they are healthier.

This works for ANY sale item that is not limited by the store! I am happy when I walk out of the store only having paid 30-35% of their exorbitant prices! To eat, I HAVE to find ways to save. Also get distressed packages and one-day-short-of deadline foods.

    To make this work, shop late on the last day of the sale week, when sale items are likely to be in short supply. Also, late in the day, you are more likely to find distressed packages which are - or can be - marked way down. I can get as much as 80-85% OFF by ASKING for it. They'd be throwing the package away within hours!
