Make your own cleaning products. Don't buy paper towels or napkins.
Past the age of 2,the only beverage humans need is water;don't buy juice,milk,soda,etc., except as a special treat.Cook from scratch.Replace meat with beans,lentils &tofu.Cook dried beans instead of buying canned.Whole grains,like whole wheat pasta &brown rice,may cost more than simple grains,like white rice &pasta,but they are more filling &more nutritious,so they really are the better value.Frozen fruits &vegetables often cost less than fresh;they have the added advantage of having a longer shelf life &holding their nutrition longer.Once or twice a week have breakfast for dinner: yogurt with frozen blueberries &whole grain cereal or an omelet with veggies &a little bit of cheese &whole grain toast.Before you go to the grocery store,plan your meals &snacks for the next 8days.Base your grocery list on your meal plan.Pull any necessary coupons.
