One of the ways we work to save money is by planning our meals and grocery shopping once a month. Part of this is because we don’t have a car: we use a zipcar once a month to hit Costco and do the major shopping, picking up the large, heavy, refrigerated and frozen items then.
We don’t always color within the lines of these meal plans–but–they do give us some structure and a workable strategy for staying on-budget and well-stocked.
