Money Saving Tip – Leftovers and the Recipe for Successful Saving

Money Saving Tip – The Recipe for Successful Saving

Instead of discarding perfectly good leftover food, make the most of it with the tasty recipe suggestions that you can find on websites like Supercook or BigOven, which suggest dishes based on the ingredients you have available.

Make tasty savings by planning your week’s meals ahead of time – including the meals eaten at home and packed lunches for school or work. Having all the ingredients to hand means you’re less likely to be tempted to order a takeaway or buy lunch in a convenience store.

Take a note of all the food that passes its use-by date which you wind up throwing away. It might be time to rethink how you do your grocery shopping. Instead of one weekly trip to the supermarket, consider keeping a smaller stockpile of essentials and buying the groceries you need when you need them. Try it for a few weeks, and see what it saves you.

And while we are on the subject of date… Knowing the difference between a product’s sell-by date and its use-by date could help save you money. Both dates are usually clearly marked on a food product’s packaging or label. The sell-by date is the deadline for the store to keep it on their shelves, while the use by date is the time limit for consuming it.
