Frugal Tip

Save money on groceries by making a menu. This is so simple and a great way to save money on food. If you run out of ideas ask your kids! Need a recipe? Go to All Recipes on the internet.

How long should your menu be for? I usually 2 weeks or sometimes a month, it depends on when you get paid and how much room you have to store the food. Don't forget to "shop" in your freezer, cupboard and pantry when making your money saving menu.

I also try to combine ideas with sales, for example if cheese, pasta and tomatoes are on sale I might make spaghetti, macaroni, chili mac, tacos.

This is a great way to use leftovers as well, make chili and use the leftovers for chili mac.

A great way to make a meal go further is to add bread or potatoes. Baked potatoes topped with leftovers! Healthy, affordable and delicious!
