10 Ways to Cut Your Grocery Bill in Half

Eat Your Veggies

One good way to save money is by trimming the meat from your grocery list. Vegetables are a lot cheaper than meats and are full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. You don't need to become a vegetarian, but cutting meat from your diet just one day a week can save you around $200 per year for a four person family [source:]. Try substituting the less-expensive tofu instead of chicken breast in your next stir-fry -- it's delicious and nutritious. Or just browse the Internet for some yummy vegetarian recipes. Your body and your palate may enjoy a different kind of protein for a change.
