Thirfty Tip Tuesday!!!

My Thrifty tip:
Meal Plan each week and include snacks
Meal Planning saves you time and money. You can purchase what you need at the store (using coupons of course) or base your meals off what you already have in the freezer/pantry.
I know you can't completley meal plan for snacks but there are small changes you can make to cut down on stops at Walgreens & various gas stations when you what something to drink or you are craving something salty/sweet.
My husband like Gatorades. They run about $2.00 at a gas station. Yesterday I bought 5 for $5.00 at Kroger (plus I had a $1/5 gatorades) coupon. Instead of spending $10 for his weekly gatorades we only spent $4.
I also try to buy things I can divide in sandwich bags as quick snacks for when we are running out the door. This prevents me from stopping at a gas station for a quick fix when I'd probably spend way too much money and get something really unhealthy for me!
