Saving Money on Groceries
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     All children grow up to become adults. When they do, they move out on their own and start taking care of themselves. They don't have someone to buy the things they want and need anymore. One of the things they have to start buying for themselves is food.
 
2     Food isn't cheap. Of course, some things are cheaper than others. Many people have run short on money and eaten a lot of macaroni and cheese until they get paid again. Making sure you have enough money for food is very important.
 
3     Everyone wants to go to the movies or buy the newest music. But you can't do this if it means spending the money you usually use for groceries. Grocery money should only be used for groceries.
 
4     For one month, write down how much money you spend on food each week. Don't forget to include the extra stops that you make when you run out of something during the week. Also write down all you spend for food that you buy at restaurants and take-out food.
 
5     At the end of the month, add up how much money you spent. Then divide that total by four. That is about how much you spend each week on food.
