After planning your meals for the week, make a shopping list with the types and amounts of food needed.  First look in your pantry and refrigerator and cross off those items already on hand.  Now you’re ready to shop!  By shopping from a list, you will avoid buying non-nutritious extras on impulse.  Save money by using coupons and buying your grocery’s sale foods.
