One way to save money for food is to make sure that there are no leftovers from meals, or use the leftovers effectively.
Divide your leftovers in individual servings. Place them in in freezer safe containers and freeze them. Label the contents so you’ll know what’s inside. Each container can be heated up whenever anyone needs a quick meal, or if you are running late in making dinner.
Leftover meat or vegetables can be made into soup. It can also be used as pizza topping or mixed into pasta sauces. You can also buy pastry shells and have these leftovers as fillings for delicious meat pies.
You can also use leftover for packed lunches. This way, you do not only waste food, but you also save time in preparing lunches.
