11 ways to save money on breakfast food
The price you pay for grocery store items are rising due to the rise in gasoline. Think about it for a second, you need gasoline to travel long distances. Food crops require seeding or farming, watering or feeding, inspection, packaging, and delivering. All of this requires gasoline. Thankfully, Fridge Book
is here to help you out, starting out with the most important meal of the day. We want you to be energized, well-fed, and successful throughout your life.
Here are eleven steps to help you save big bucks on breakfast food.
- Write down what you plan on buying. Lists and memos can really help you focus when purchasing items.
- If you’re on a diet, overpaying for sugared cereals isn’t the best way to go about losing weight but it can help you lose money. Stick to buying healthy food, since it is actually proven to keep you energized, satisfy your hunger, and increase your ambition. Talk about bang for your buck.
- Speaking of cereal (this time healthy cereal), did you know that Kelloggs provides coupons and free offers to people who simply sign up with their website? It is absolutely free to sign up and we have calculated you can save hundreds of dollars a year. What could you do with an extra hundred bucks a year? Maybe save a child in need of food or medicine, perhaps get better health insurance, buy a bike, a brand new wardrobe, or a gift to a loved one. Click here for your money.
- Buy the produce that is in season, meaning that if it’s Spring right now you should be buying Pineapple and Rhubarb instead of Squash and Turnips.
- Buy what is affordable and then find recipes for your ingredients. We are always willing to help you find meals for your recipe list. Ask us anything here.
- Use left-overs. You have no idea how many people throw out cereal boxes because they have to tilt it over a little further in order for the cereal to come out. According to a national survey, Americans throw out 25 percent of their food, and other nations are not far behind on food waste. Don’t waste food, recycle what you have and make something delicious.
- Eat vegetarian more often. Seriously.Bananas are like 39 cents a pound.
- Buy generic brands. It’s cheaper.
- Don’t buy pre-packaged or microwaved dinners. Not only is it terrible for your water supply (since those plastics ends up in your landfill), it’s horrible for your wallet too.
- Buy in bulk. If you can fit it in your house, sign up for Costco or Sams club. Even buying online can really help you. Visit Amazon.com for food in stock. They’re actually having a sale on Kashi Go Lean cereal right now.
- Grow your own garden. This challenging experiment is a skill that will last you a lifetime. Learn how to grow your own fruits and vegetables and don’t worry about inflated vegetable prices again.
