Control Spending on Food
One of the things most families do wrong is that they overspend on food. It is important to have a well-planned budget for food Make sure you save coupons and make a list of what your family enjoys eating and keep their favorites on hand. When you see the store has a stock up sale then stock up on the items you use most often. Don’t buy more than you need and agree with your family on what you will buy so that you don’t end up purchasing things like five different cereals when one will do and your whole family will eat it (in my family it ravioli lasagna ). Among the most expensive foods is meat so when there are sales stock up on the meat and freeze it until you’ll use it. Being smart when it comes to buying food will keep you from spending too much.
