Most everyone will agree that shopping on a budget doesn’t stretch very far anymore. Trying to eat healthy and prepare wholesome meals is becoming a increasing challenge. However, it is not one that is impossible but it does take more planning and time to become a wise shopper.
It may mean having to visit several stores in order to take advantage of the deals and sales that are going on at a time. However, if you watch the newspapers carefully you will often find that the stores collectively are offering deals on the same foods. It is a matter of choosing the one that has the lowest price and going for it. Investing in a freezer may be a wise decision as many foods can be bought on sale and prepared and then frozen and yet they still retain their nutritional value. Plan meals based on what is on sale.
Whenever possible even growing a few veggies at home can make a big a difference in the food bill. This is particularly true for vegetables that are being imported. Another way of shopping healthy and staying on a budget is to find innovative ways to use leftovers.
