Great Ways to Save Money on Your Food Prep

With a new season upon us, you're probably thinking about all the things that were perhaps a little less frugal than you would have preferred - like all the meals you paid for at restaurants when you could have made them yourself. Or if you've made it as far as bringing lunch, perhaps you're considering meal prep. 

If you don't know what that means, meal prep is exactly what it sounds like: preparing meals ahead of time. Not only will you save money compared to eating out, but with a little planning, you'll reduce what you spend on food significantly.

Think Globally Buy Locally

Think globally; buy locally if you need a last minute gift for someone across the world.

Each year, I exchange holiday gifts with a good friend in Australia. This normally requires that I stand in line at the post office, where I either pay through the nose for expedited shipping, or worry that it won’t arrive on time.

I can feel you wincing from here.  I’ll bet you’ve done this, too.
