Save Money on Rising Food Costs
According to a report from Dalhousie University and the University of Guelph, food prices are set to rise up to 3.5% in 2019, increasing the average grocery bill by about $400 a year.1 With an increase in food costs, more people are looking at ways to save money while still eating nutritious and delicious meals. One of the best ways to keep your food budget in check is with meal planning and reducing food waste.
Meal Planning Can Help Save Money
By planning out meals in advance, you can save money on food costs by buying in bulk and you’ll also avoid turning to takeout on those nights where you don’t know what to make for dinner. Organizing meals for the month or even the week can provide significant savings over a year.
Reduce Food Waste
The amount of food that is thrown out by the average Canadian is astounding. Sometimes, our impulse purchases end up in the trash, and other times a lack of planning leaves ingredients forgotten in the back of the fridge. By reducing the amount of food that is thrown out, you can save money on your food costs.
