  1. Good job, good ‘tips’. Thanks Teresa ! Another thought is …If you have (or know someone) with a Sam’s.. or Price Club card…team up & ‘split’ a flat of green beans etc. Even add a 3rd person. I do this with a neighbor even on the ‘huge’ pkgs of frozen veggies that we divide up into freezer bags. Also most generic/store brands are close to equal the name brands.

    • Splitting large quantities is a great suggestion! I used to hear about people joining to form co-ops where they’d divvy up large quantities of food. It’s another great money saver, as long as one person doesn’t have to do all the work.
      You are also right about generics. I think that is worth a whole conversation, maybe in a couple weeks.
      Thanks for reading and for sharing your ideas!
