I feel like I spend too much on groceries, especially considering it is just me, my brother, and our handful of pets living under the same roof. I have seen families with children spend less. What are some ways I can cut back without sacrificing things I enjoy eating?
Well, one of the easiest ways is to just buy store-brand items or off-label/off-brand items. I know this is not always as easy when it comes to food because the “generic” stuff can be pretty hit or miss but it is worth trying different things out. You can save quite a bit this way.
Avoid buying convenient foods! I can buy a frozen meal for $3 each or I can get all the ingredients to make the same meal for $10 and be able to have 6 or more meals from it so it makes sense for me to just meal prep. I think it is worth looking into if you never tried it.
