Simple Tips on Saving Money While Eating Healthy

  • Start using that dusty old spice rack to give your recipes a little more flavor. You will use this often when preparing your own healthy meals at home.
  • Buy extra when an item goes on sale, especially if it is shelf stable (chicken broth, beans, etc) or can be frozen and used later (meats). We've even dedicated one of our hall closets as our "bulk" closet.
  • We've had pretty good success scoring coupons by emailing the vendors that market the products that we frequently purchase. Most of the time you can reach them by going to the "Contact Us" section of their website; however, it's often as simple as signing up for their email newsletter!
  • Check the front of the store where you shop for coupons. Some stores have booklets right when you walk in that are full of recipes and coupons. Browse through these before you start shopping to see if there is a coupon for something on your list.

Our Favorite Healthy AND Frugal Meal Ideas

Don't be fooled...eating out is very expensive. It adds up quickly although most people just pay attention to their grocery store total vs their restaurant bill. We love to buy ingredients that we can use in many different recipes and make the most cost-effective meals we can. Below we share with you some of our favorites and an approximate total for each. We think it's a small price to pay when you can control exactly what is going in your food and how it is prepared.
