????????????????????????????????????A lot of what has been successful in my life has been making work a game.

  • Make cutting your grocery bill a game. Make it a game to see how low you can make your grocery budget and have delicious meals without feeling deprived.
  • Find some meatless meals that appeal to your family.
      • Pizza, Tossed salad
      • Cheese Enchiladas, Refried Beans, Tortilla chips
      • Grilled Cheese, Tomato Soup
      • Waffles, scrambled eggs , fruit
      • Macaroni and Cheese, sliced apples and oranges
  • Cut back on the amount of meat you use in some dishes.
    • Chef Salad and rolls
    • Sloppy Joes, oven fries, sliced fruit
  • Drink water with your meals.  Drinking water brings lots of health benefits.
  • Try generic brands. If you don’t think they compare to your favorite brands go back to your favorites. Many generic brands taste as good as the name brands.
  • Many foods have a satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t like it, return it or call the company at the number listed on the package.
  • Don’t buy toaster pastries and breakfast bars. Eat oatmeal, pancakes, granola and fruit instead.
  • Plan your meals. Don’t forget to develop a cycle menu.
  • Clean your refrigerator the day before you go to the grocery store and make use of what you have on hand as you plan for the next week.
  • Don’t buy non-food items at the grocery store.  Diapers , OTC (over the counter) medications,  personal toiletries are less pricey at discount stores.
  • Never shop hungry

Have a day filled with love, hugs, and smiles,

Mary
