Although the holidays are well behind us, the pinch of all that holiday spending is still being felt. On top of that, resolutions made to eat better can seem impossible when budgets are tight. The good news is that there are ways to eat well this winter while trying to cut back on food spending.
Also, one last tip! Throwing out spoiled or uneaten food is a HUGE waste of money. Either changing your buying habits to better suit what you eat or using a basket labelled "eat soon" in your fridge to highlight foods to be eaten asap can help. There is nothing more frustrating than setting a goal to eat better, buying a ton of fresh food, then having it spoil before all of it can be eaten. Pace yourself! Buy what you need and plan out meals in which to use the fresh food. Practice makes perfect when trying to throw meals together with what is in the fridge!
