Tips on Stretching Your Groceries (and your budget)

  1. Have a plan: planning weekly meals and creating a shopping list will help guide your purchases, preventing those food splurges your budget doesn’t need.
  2. Make recipes that have similar ingredients: Use up your produce in different recipes on different days. You cut down on food waste and grocery purchases.
  3. Be realistic about portion sizes: Think in terms of what foods can be used in more than one meal.
  4. Cook in bulk and freeze: Prepare extra and freeze the leftovers for another meal.
  5. Take advantage of weekly ads: planning your meals around deals and using coupons can help save money and give your purchases direction.
