Tips for sticking to your budget:
  • Plan your meals every week.
  • Make a grocery list and stick to it.
  • Try not to shop when you are hungry.
  • Clip coupons, organize them and keep them with you.
  • Watch for sales, especially on meat close to its expiration date – you can always freeze it for later.
  • Compare store brand prices with national brands.
  • Remember, most canned, fresh and frozen items can be exchanged in recipes.
  • Buy your favorite food items in bulk, if possible, such as noodles, beans, canned fruits and vegetables and more.
