  4. Go for store brands: Don’t be afraid to buy off-brand products! They’re cheaper, but sometimes the off-brand products are more delicious.
  5. Cook large batches of food: Saves money and time. Also, you can portion it throughout the week. Leftovers!
  6. Eat less meat: Meat is often the most expensive part of a meal, so eat more vegetables!
  7. Finally, make sure to always have a couple of meals in your freezer: If you’re too lazy to do the whole cooking process, then these freezer meals will prevent your temptation to go out to eat or order take-out.
