Food Shopping Starts at Home
Managing food dollars wisely involves planning before and during your grocery shopping. Some knowledge of nutrition, plus careful meal planning, skillful shopping, proper food storage, handling, and preparation will help you to serve satisfying meals while remaining within your food budget.
Check newspaper ads for special sales; Clip coupons if the item is one you would normally buy and if the item is less expensive than similar brands; take advantage of seasonal specials; Think appetite appeal since people eat all their senses, plan meals using foods of contrasting colors, textures, flavors, sizes, shapes and temperatures; Plan the use of leftovers; Make a shopping list.
