I’d like to talk about a savings strategy that I use that saves me around $1300 / year (or more for some people). This simple strategy that a lot of people don’t use is brown bagging your lunch! If buying lunch everyday costs $8/day compared with a brown bagged lunch which costs me around $3/day, you are saving $5/day ($1300/year). You can save even more by packing up those left overs for lunch the next day. I personally enjoy left overs. Easy meals that are ready to go that just need a few minutes in the microwave.
I must admit, I like to eat a lot. So, what does a food glutton like me do? I cook in bulk, separate the food into tupperware, and store it in the freezer. Cooking in bulk can save you a lot of hard earned cash. Where do I get my recipes? I find that AllRecipes.com is a great resource. My favorites are the quick and healthy meals.
For you home chefs out there, where do you get your recipes?
