You show thrift when you buy items on sale. This includes
food. Set aside some of your food budget to buy items when they go on sale. Make it a goal this year to build up your pantry. You will save
money on food in the long run, both by purchasing the items at a discount, and by not
having to run to the store when you run
out of things. A well-stocked pantry is also a big help when you can't get to
the store and have to "make-do" with what you have at home.
some additional frugal tips to help save money
stocking your pantry.
- Have a good rotation system so
that you eat all your food before it gets old.
- Store the basics. Store
what you use, and use what you store.
- Buy items in bulk. Use
your freezer to preserve food longer.
- Buy items in bulk and split
them with a friend.
