Ways to Cut Your Food Bill
"Paying Bills" by seaofteeth
I thought some of you might be interested in this article on ways to cut your food bill by 25 percent that I just came across this morning on Yahoo's home page.
Personally, I would probably find myself wasting more food and, hence, wasting more money, if I took the article's suggestion to shop every other week. I shop every week and only purchase enough food for that week. I do like the article's suggestion to resolve to eat, within 24 hours, whatever leftovers (or "layovers") from the day before, even if you have to eat them for breakfast. There have been plenty of times I've eaten lasagna for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the same day to ensure it wouldn't end up getting tossed.
