    Food is really expensive so I try to save money on food by growing a lot of fruit and vegetables myself. I am not a big meat eater but I know that meat can be very expensive. Another idea is to bake your own bread. Home made bread always tastes better and is a lot better for you - you can ad your own personal ingredients.

    I have a dog so I know that pet food can be rather expensive. Recently I have started to prepare my own dog food for my dog and he seems a lot happier.

    Anything thing you can do is to grow your own herbs. Most herbs can be used as spices and some herbs are more versatile than others.
    Growing sprouts is another way to cut down your food bill. Sprouts are cheap to buy and cost next to nothing to produce.  They are highly nutritious, and it does not take long to grow sprouts. It is also really easy.

      Great tips Healthyannie! I grow a variety of herbs, fruits, and vegetables. It does save money and they taste better too! That is so neat that you are making your own dog food. I would be happier too, if I was a dog! Hope your day is delightful~

    Grow it! If you can't grow it cook it from the least processed food you can buy. Processed foods are upcharged.
    This year we will only be buying meat and a couple fruits from the grocery store. Everything else is growing in the yard. Even my seasonings will be home made. This will reduce my bill at the grocery store to about $40 a week for a family of 5.
    Many don't grow their own food because they don't have space, but these days they make all sorts of vertical gardens that will fit in a 2 by 2 section.

      Great tips! I use a lot of my garden fresh herbs for seasoning my food. Chives are my favorite! My friend is growing a lot of vegetables and fruits, in pots this year. They are doing great! Thank you for your comments and I hope you have a great day~

    Shop from the sales flyer, plan your meals for the week before you head to the grocery store, and be adventurous in the kitchen and learn to make homemade versions of what you like to eat in restaurants or what you would normally buy in the store that is pre-made and thus more expensive.

      Great tips renegadetory! Homemade versions taste so much better than store-bought or restaurant, and they are a lot cheaper too! Thanks for you input and I hope you have a wonderful day~
