Becoming financially independent and free starts with good saving habits. Saving money on groceries and in the kitchen includes practical tips and advice how you can increase your savings while still living a good life.

Although pinching pennies is not the best way to grow your net worth, it sure is a wonderful start and one step closer of getting out of debt.

However, groceries can easily bite a huge part of your paycheck as well and everyone needs food which makes it difficult to cut back.

    We definitely spend way too much on groceries. We are family of 3 and I guess we pay around $500 each month. I wish we could only spend half of it. Thanks for sharing your helpful tips!

      It is a great way to save. I always prepare a pie when a lasagna, etc is in the oven. Saves quite a bit energy and money!

      Absolutely, I try to follow it as well. I tend to organize the food at home by the expiration dates and use absolutely everything, including leftovers. It does pay off well!

    I love hosting potluck at my place. I have twins, so it is not easy to cook for guests as well. Besides, we get to keep the leftovers :)
