Take Advantage Of Bulk Buying Food. Angelfoodminist ries.Com
Members Were Sparked
I love AngelFoodMinistries.com. This organization gets huge discounts on food and passes the savings on to you. I have a family of 3 and spend $100 or less on food every few weeks with this buying power. This works out to approximately $35/week or less.

Shop at places like Costco and Sam's & you'll save money, right? Maybe so, maybe not. How long will it take you to eat a case of baked beans and how will you feel about another can of baked beans before you'll EVER buy another can. Don't buy bulk in fruits, vegetables. 90% of the time you will find yourself throwing away the savings. Unless you have a large freezer available, taking advantage of one type of frozen vegetable or meat will have you going to a fast food place before you eat another
boneless, skinless chicken breast.
My DW and I have found that taking a friend to Costco gives us the savings and splitting the "bounty" gives us plenty of variety.
Think you have no time to exercise? Use those minutes you spend just standing. Sometimes when there is a minute left on the timer when I am cooking something, I'll use that minute to do jumping jacks, squats, high knees, etc.
Taking advantage of those idle moments can add up to some time that you are moving.
Every weekend I buy a large family pack of skinless/boneless chicken breasts, split them in halves and bake or grill the whole lot. Over the week I add it to soups, stews, or sprinkle seasonings to make it a main dish. It saves me SO much time on weekdays and I always have food in a pinch.
Save time, save money buying in bulk, and there's always something to grab & prepare if you're starving.
