10-Minute Money Tune-Ups
Feeding a family of two or four (or ten) is expensive, so taking ten minutes to optimize your grocery shopping can save you in the long run. Do a quick audit of your fridge and pantry, taking note of any food items you consistently have trouble finishing before they go bad. Should you start buying smaller milk cartons? Fewer eggs?
Also take note of the sorts of foods your kids have been eating. Are they finishing up all the Fruit Roll-Ups within days of your buying them? Now’s a good time to note any unhealthy patterns and alter your future shopping lists accordingly.
