    Along the lines of several recent threads, I thought folks would like to see this article from a local paper. It has some great tips. I'll add: shop the perimeter of the store where food is fresher, whole, less processed and therefore a much better value.

    That was a good article, thanks for posting it! I already do most of those things. I was raised by a woman who was a young mother during the depression. I came along quite a bit later! She and my husband's grandmother I think invented reduce, reuse and recycle! lol You didn't throw away nuttin' in my house. If there was a tablespoonful of food left in a dish it was saved in case somebody needed a bite later on. I still wash and reuse plastic bags, foil, etc. The list is too long for here.

    To add to BearSwampChick's comment...

    ...I find it rather depressing to constantly see all these "ways to save $$" articles and so forth, and discover that I am already DOING all those things (which kinda removes any possibility of saving $$ compared to now).

    When I am in a grouchy mood I tend to think those articles should be retitled "How To Spend Wastefully And Lose Money Hand Over Fist," with simple rephrasing to "don't use coupons or stock up during sales, buy lots of processed food," etc.

    Hmph.
