When it comes to stretching the budget most of us look at our food budget to take the cut. One way to make cuts is to stock up on foods that save you money. When you think of cheap foods often what comes to mind is BEANS… In truth beans do not save you much money if your family does not like them. Wasted beans is wasted money.

I like to cook on Sundays, and have meals ready to go for Monday through Wednesday. Thursday then becomes “leftover day.” You choose what works best for you and your schedule.http://shopperstrategy.com/2012/12/06/cut-your-budget-with-plan-ahead-weekday-dinner-prep/
