I use to clip coupons all the time, but where we live now, the local paper might have coupons in it once every 6 weeks or so and the store doesn't always accept coupons I print on line - if the machine won't scan it they can't manually put in the information :(

We go grocery shopping first thing in the morning and don't leave home without a list. Unless hubby sees something that he wants, we only get what is on the list and never anything else.

I always have a calculator in my purse, I do the math in my head (want to keep my brain sharp :) ) but will confirm the math with the calculator. Report

A local food store will shop forvyou. You give them a list. They shop and bag it you pay. The cost is $5. I can spend a lot more than that in impulse buys. Report

I like the stores that print out the breakdown of costs per ounce or per serving. Often I find that the smaller sizes are more of a bargain.

Also, sometimes sale items are pricier than brands not on sale. if I grab a sale item from an end cap I will go to it's home on the shelf to compare costs. Those nickels and dimes add up! Report

I shop at a food coop & purchase organic or minimally treated produce. Also there is such as variety of fruits & veggies, nuts & other organic products I shop there every 2 weeks. purchase from big box for staples like oatmeal, rice, beans. I shop big box obce every 2-3 months.The savings from the big box help me have enough for organic products.Thats how I even out purchase price increase for organic food so I can stay within budget.

Fast Weight Reduction Plan
Fat-free foods happen to be popular for a long time. However, these foods are often not low in calories. Lots of people complete with fats absolutely free or lowered unwanted fat cookies and desserts. When ingesting a lesser amount of extra fat, they will eat additional processed sugars and carb supply, which can be full off energy and may be changed into fats saved in your body.

It's possible that we will be moving in another two or three months (if the local real estate market cooperates) so I've been looking through my existing pantry and frozen items. Yikes, you'd think I was auditioning for one of those reality shows about survivalists or hoarders. It will be interesting to see how many healthy meals I can conjure up with what I already have on hand. With dried beans alone I could feed an army. The lesson here: your kitchen goods expand to fit the storage space available. Report
