Best Food Forward – Save Cash & Calories

March 27th, 2013 No Comments Tags: , , , , ,

Looking to save cash and calories? Easy money-saving strategies can help you do both! Strategies that save you money can also help keep your calorie consumption on track. Try these simple tips next time you’re at the grocery store:

• Pay with cash, not plastic. You’ll have to stick to your budget if you bring only the amount of money you plan to spend.

• Think small. Those jumbo packs of snacks aren’t a bargain if you end up throwing some away, plus having bigger packages at home means you’ll eat more.

• Shop wise. Beware of the hidden costs of buy-one-get-one-free offers. Sure, you get more food for less money, but how much might be wasted?

• Shop during non-peak times. You’ll spend less time in the checkout line, where you might be tempted to buy expensive magazines and candy.

• Skip the sweet samples. If you taste a sugary treat, such as cookies, candies or chocolate, you may be more likely to buy less healthy foods that aren’t on your list.
