Make your own versions of foods you routinely buy in the supermarket. You will spend less and get better quality making your own croutons, salad dressings, garlic bread, and chicken stock.
Develop delicious recipes that use dried beans, squash, kale, collard greens, and potatoes. On the meat side, try cooking techniques to tenderize them, such as braising and stewing.
Many packaged fresh herbs go to waste because you don't use them often enough. Plus, packaged herbs are expensive and the cost adds up over time. You can even grow an herb garden in a window box.
Don't let leftovers sit in the refrigerator. Think ahead and use them the next day in easy dishes like omelettes, soups, stir-fries, casseroles, sandwiches, wraps, and salads.
Use your freezer intelligently by taking advantage of supermarket sales. Buy ground meat, chicken breasts, steaks, and chops in bulk. Warp and save leftovers from casseroles, such as lasagna and roasts. Remember to day everything you put in the freezer.
