I have made big changes in my food shopping in the past 6 months or so. I had never calculated how much I spent on groceries until the day I checked my credit card bill (I pay everyting with my card to get points) and saw I spent around $250 a month, quite consistently. I thought this was a little high and I decided to see if I could find ways to save money on food.

5 ways to save money on food (while eating well)
Look at how much you normally spend and set a food budget 20% lower for the next month to save money on food.
- For example if you normally spend $250. a month on food – excluding cleaning products, toilet paper, etc., set your food budget at 80% of that, or $200. a month. If you are already spending wisely you may not lower your food bill as much as I did. On the other hand, you may find you can be a lot more thrifty and still eat really well.
