      In my local paper today, there was an article with people giving

      advice on how to cut their food bill.

      Here is the link to read the whole thing:

      In sum, the suggestions were:

      1. Make a list and stick to it when shopping; buy only what you need

      to make the pre-set menus you’ve created.

      2. Use coupons (paper & internet), but also keep track of prices to

      know if you are getting a good deal.

      3. Grow your own; barter for the rest

      Additional tips:

      – Cook more, eat out less

      – Eat more fruits & veggies & beans & less meat

      – Substitute lower-cost items for higher-cost items:

      – tofu for meat (use 1/2-meat & 1/2-tofu)

      – oil for butter

      – cut cheese in 1/2 when using in recipes

      And here’s the related article on how food prices are rising:
