As the cost of food continues to rise we endeavor to make the most with the food we buy. I'm starting a new series with tips for Staying on Top of Food Costs. Each week I'll share tips I've learned, tried and heard of doing.
I thought I'd start this first week off with a little background on how we eat.
We try to eat as healthy as we can. That means I make almost everything from scratch, but I'm not opposed to using a package occasionally. I try to keep our sugar intake on the lower side so we don't usually have sugary snacks or many desserts. I also attempt to make as much as possible gluten free, because Jeff needs to eat that way and it is easier to make one meal that everyone can eat than make one for him and another one for everyone else. I also try to buy organically for much of the food we eat.
What do you do to help you keep costs manageable for putting food on your table? Share your #1 money saver for your family in the comments.
