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: shiftyourhabit.com].
