Save Money on Juices
Water down your children's juice cups
with 1/3 - 1/2 water. Not only does this save money, but it also saves the amount of
grams of sugar going into our children, and on their teeth! (By the way -
juice can ruin a baby's teeth so don't let them go to bed with a bottle of
juice, day or night!)

Save Money on Produce
If you buy a large bag of produce (instead of individual produce items), and the
bag contains one or more bruised or spoiled items, remove the
damaged produce as soon as you get home. One spoiled item can affect the
rest of the bag if it's not removed soon.

Save Money on Meats

always on sale! After preparing a large ham for one meal, simply divide the

Save Money on Sodas
Of course the best way to save money on sodas is to
start drinking water instead, it's also much healthier. If you can't cut the soda habit completely, try just cutting your
family's consumption in half. That will help. Sales for these products vary from week to week, but I have noticed when
Coke products are on sale Pepsi products are not, and vice versa. So, either
stock up when your brand of choice is on sale or switch back and forth depending
on the sale. At our local stores, a 2-liter name brand soda on sale may cost about
cents, while a 2-liter not on sale may cost up to $1.79. In other
words... No sale, No buy!
