Frugal Food

Frugal food tips is one of the best ways to save money. I'm always on the lookout on how to save on groceries. I have gathered a list of my most used frugal food tips:

  •   Don't purchase soda
  •   Dilute canned frozen juice, (if purchased at all)
  •   Save juice from canned fruit, to freeze into popsicles
  •  Don’t buy eggs, raise chickens
  •   Buy meat on sale or clearance only
  •    Buy bananas which are turning brown, to make breads, muffins and pancakes.
  •  Hot cereal is cheaper than cold cereal
  •   Use coupons for food you will actually eat.
  •  Use powdered milk for cooking
  •  Make your own sweet tea, using as few tea bags and sugar as possible
  •   Limit eating out. When eating out don’t order drinks, eat lunch instead of dinner, or just go out for dessert
  •  Stock pile food items on sale which you will use
  • Use a freezer for frozen sale items
  •  Cook from scratch
  •  Shop discount grocery stores
  • Eat less meat
  •  Bake from scratch, items for breakfast and snacks
  • No packaged convenience foods
  • Eat only when hungry
  •  Grow your own food
  •  Use a root cellar for surplus garden foods (still on my on to do list)
  • Can fruit from fruit trees, your own or your neighbors (with permission of course)

What tips do you use?
