We all may have different reasons for wanting to cut back – maybe a large unexpected bill needs to be paid, maybe you’re saving up for a new home or car, or maybe there’s too much month and just not quite enough money to get to the end of it. For me the motivation was a desire to have a lighter footprint and convenience foods came with a shocking amount of over-packaged waste. It’s interesting though that my desire to have a lighter footprint also saved substantial amounts of money from our grocery budget. Whatever your motivation, one of the worst budget hits is wasted food so make sure all the food you buy goes to fulfilling your family’s nutritional requirements. The good news is that there are many easy ways to make the most of your food dollars.
