A Few Strategies to Reduce Your Food Bill

The last time you ordered a meal from a restaurant or went to the grocery store, you may have noticed that you spent more money than you expected. That’s because, like everything else, the cost of food and beverages keeps going up. In fact, most of us spend more on food than we realize, and that money can really add up over time.

If you’d like to save some money on food and still eat well, here are some strategies you might want to try:

  • Cook simple meals yourself at home – Even if you don’t know how to cook, it’s very easy to make your own delicious meals right at home, which is often cheaper than eating out or buying already-prepared meals. By cooking your own meals, you have more control over the cost of the ingredients and the portion sizes. Even simple meals like pasta, baked chicken, steamed vegetables, rice, soups, and sandwiches are all filling and inexpensive to make.
  • Buy ingredients on sale – Now that you know how to prepare your own meals, plan them around the food that’s on sale at the grocery store. Take advantage of “buy one, get one free,” coupons, and other deals that allow you to buy food staples that you like and will use in your meal preparation.
  • Use your leftovers wisely – Whenever you have leftover food, find a smart use for it. For example, leftover dinner can be lunch the next day, or you can save up a few days of leftovers and use them as a full dinner for a night.
