As school comes back in session, I’m sure a lot of you are stocking your pantry (If you aren’t in a dorm). I know it’s easy and quick to buy frozen dinners or order pizza, but that can get really expensive over time — and pretty unhealthy. It all adds up, and all of a sudden your food budget for the month is done for, and the month is only half way over.
Since I’ve been on my own, I’ve gotten really good at grocery shopping. I use coupons like crazy and instead of buying frozen meals, I usually try to make whatever I can from scratch. It’s much cheaper, healthier and more fun. It can be a little more time consuming, but totally worth it in the end. I usually come in under budget, with enough food to feed me for weeks. So here are 6 ways to make the most of your food budget. You would be surprised how much you can get at the grocery store for the price of that delivery pizza!
