Eating homemade foods is usually much cheaper than eating at a restaurant
or buying processed foods from the market.
Ben’s advice: “When we eat at a restaurant, we pay for not only the food,
but also the costs of running that business. The lights, the water, the
building, and the staff — in addition to the meal we are eating. The same
goes for the pre-made or frozen meals at grocery stores.”
Here are some additional ways Ben suggests to save money:
● Plan several days of meals. We’ll be less likely be tempted to eat
something else if we have a plan or something already made.
● Make a grocery list and stick to it to avoid buying extra food.
● Save leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer. Once you get a stock of
leftovers stored, you can reheat them at a later date when you don’t
have time to cook.
