Staying on Budget at the grocery store

As a parent, wouldn’t it be great to ensure that your family eats healthily even on a strict budget? With the higher prices associated with buying organic or healthier options, it sometimes seems downright impossible. Fortunately, that doesn’t have to be the case.

Jane DeLaney, mother of four and creator of meal planning service eMeals.com, has lots of suggestions for staying budget at the grocery store.  No need to rule out health in lieu of a budget! Stick to your fit and healthy goals by:
  1. Picking out healthy recipes at the beginning of the week. If you have the recipe and ingredients ready, you have no excuse not to make it.
  2. Writing a detailed list. Then, all you have to do is stick to it. (And that means nothing extra at the cash register!)
  3. Shopping only once per week. This will help you conquer stress and reduce time spent on meal planning.
  4. Involving family in meal choice. That way, picky eaters have no excuse and you won’t end up with wasted food.
  5. Keeping an eye out for vegetable coupons online. These are often overlooked.
