    Excellent article. I’ve been meal planning for over 4 years now. I make a lot of freezer meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I buy everything I need for the month, at one time but from several different stores. It helps keep my food budget low, instead of shopping weekly. I do use some coupons, paper & digital. I also use rebates, one receipt for ibotta, dosh, checkout 51, receipt hog, etc.
    I even make my own pizza’s. On the odd occasion, one of the kids will have pizza at a friend’s house from a chain delivery place and they say it tastes like cardboard with skimpy toppings. Or eat at a fast food chain and they say it doesn’t taste like real food.

      Freezer meals are such a super way to save money and time! My kids favor home made pizza, too. The dough is so much healthier and we love the taste. Keep up the awesome work πŸ™‚

    Once again great advice!! We spend too much money dining out. Of course we don’t like the dishes and it cutts time but we need to save money! Thanks for the tips!

    Being immune-compromised, I don’t trust anyone to prepare food safely for me. Believe me, I’ve seen some pretty horrific things in restaurants in the past. However, I certainly do understand the temptation to eat out -even though it could be deadly for me.
    Carrying some homemade protein bars on me is something I’m going to try to remember to do in the future.

  18. Thomas Gibson says:

    Dining out has become so expensive anymore. Fast food prices have skyrocketed. Gone are the days of value pricing.

  19. Michael Coovert says:

    I definitely need help in this department. I am the world’s worst about going for carry out because I am too tired and lazy to cook at home.

  20. Michael Coovert says:

    This helps because I need all the help I can get. I am the world’s worst about going for carry out because I am too tired and lazy to cook at home.

    Other than Pizza we had stopped dining out tremendously, but this year we really started getting fast food regularly. We could save so much money on cooking the same meals at home.
