Budget, Finances & Food

Discounted Food

Food is one of those items that I think I can  make a big difference on if I’m careful.  I like to eat out a lot, so it wouldn’t surprise me if my spending got a little out of control in this area.   I have given myself a food budget, and am going to try to stick to it as closely as possible.

I have looked for small ways to make my food budget stretch a little farther.  I remembered a farmer’s market that sold discounted vegetables, fruit, and fish.  When I did some research into this particular farmer’s market, I heard conflicting information.  So I didn’t go there until yesterday.  It was so much cheaper than my local grocery store and has a lot of variety!  I believe the key is to get there early, so you can get the better produce.  I then went to my local grocery for items that I couldn’t find at the farmer’s market.

Other Efforts to Save Money

I have made other efforts to same money.  For example, I stopped going to Zumba classes.  I’m not sure that was a good decision, since it was a great way for me to deal with stress.  The Zumba classes were not cheap, but I always left them feeling pretty good about myself.   Maybe I could try walking for 30 minutes a few days a week and see if it has the same effect.
