How to save some "bucks" ( money)/ Tips to stretch your money

Is your purse just as empty as your grocery cupboard or fridge? Have you tried everything but still can't get your budget plan right? Here are a few tips that will definitely have a impact on your budget: * Buy your products in bulk where possible and especially if you have a big family. Many times you get bigger discount at wholesalers when buying in bulk. * Choose your products yourself - it is cheaper to choose your products from the shelve and weigh it then choose those already packed for you. Even better to buy by the bag or combo deals when it comes to fruit or vegetables. * Be aware of water Some products like frozen chicken and sausage have a big percentage of water towards it. It might seem cheaper to buy frozen meat but it is not. * Buy a whole chicken instead of portions: It is cheaper per kilogram and you can afterwards use the bone parts when making soup. * Buy range eggs because it is cheaper . It doesn't really matter what the size of the eggs are when you making an omelet. * Buy quality although it is more expensive. The good quality product will last you a lifetime. * Try to do your shopping once a month. The longer you stay away from the shops the less money you will spend. * Plan your cooking menu and shop according to it. * Do not shop on a empty stomach because you will be tempted to buy junk food.

Meat is often times cheaper at a butcher shop if you have one near you. Has the added plus of knowing it is fresh also.

Those are good tips in stretching the budget. It is still hard, though, when everything it seems is going up in price.
