How to eat on the cheap!

I've spent some time this morning perusing sites looking for advice on cutting grocery expenses. I do pretty well as it is but it's good to keep abreast of such things and I get email fairly often from people new to budgeting and frugality asking if I'll post more "how to" entries on those topics. Not only that, who knows when and where some miraculous suggestion will appear?? It could happen! And I don't want to miss it when it does! Most of the sites say the same things - do this, do that, etc. But some of the advice is so good (and so overlooked) that it really does bear repeating.

One of the spots with such advice is About.com's Frugal Living's hints for cutting grocery expenses. The guide's advice is sound and thorough. Make sure you check out the additional resources toward the bottom of the pages. There are some golden nuggets there!

By the way, the article on recession proofing your finances is very good, also. Mmmm, maybe the Fed needs to read that!

I like about.com frugal living. It has some great tips. Thanks for posting the link. I liked the substitutes. I hadn't used most of them before.

Laurie, I like FL at about.com, too. I like most of the about.com stuff, though. :) I'm glad you learned something from the substitute info!
