How can I cut the cost of feeding my family?

Cut Back on Eating Out

Let's face it, it is easier and less time-consuming to stop by a fast-food drive-thru restaurants or convenience stores to pick up something for lunch or your evening meal than it is to cook at home. Try this experiment. Designate a typical week and record the amount you spend every time you purchase ready-made food to eat, whether you eat it at the restaurant, home, work, or on the road. You will be surprised at how much it adds up to each week. Multiply that cost by 4.5 and see how much money you are giving to others to feed you.
