101 Ways to Help Your Budget and You at Home

22. Make a monthly budget
“ If you don’t know the magic number of how much you spend each month on food, clothing, gasoline, car washes, eating out, etc., you’ll never know where you can trim the fat and save money! You might not realize that your family spends $400/month on fast food and restaurants until you take the time to add up each transaction!! Then you can decide if that’s a reasonable amount for your budget or if you need to lower that amount! It’s so much easier to SAVE money when you know WHERE it’s all going!”

23. Count The Cost
Before you buy groceries or other items in bulk, check the cost per unit (CPU) to determine which is truly the better bargain. I noticed this recently when our grocery store had crackers on sale. It ended up being cheaper for me to buy 3 small bags of the crackers (which were on sale) instead of the “family pack” (that equated to the same amount as the 3 small bags) at regular price.

 

24. Freeze It
“Freeze meals or extras. I recently make cupcakes but had too much. I froze the rest and pulled out later for a treat.”
