A New Year, A New Budget

I don't know where 2011 went, but alas, it's 2012.  As we begin this new year, some of us are revising our budgets.  The fact that food prices are rising is something we can't ignore.  Some foods have increased drastically, causing us to increase our food budget and/or to leave some foods off of our shopping lists.  Even sale prices often aren't what they used to be.  I used to be able to regularly find beef chuck roasts for under my $2 per pound meat limit; however, this past year, I've only seen it under $2/lb a couple of times.  As a result, we decided to post some of our old tips for saving money on groceries.  So, whether you're a new reader and these tips are new for you or you're a longtime reader and just need some reminders, I hope these tips will help as you seek to find ways to keep food costs low in the midst of cost increases.

We hope you find some of these tips helpful as you plan a whole new year of cooking and grocery shopping!

Thanks so much for these great tips! Sorry I haven't commented yet, but I really love your blog! It's perfect for a recent college grad/new wife and mother trying to stick within a budget. : )
