Here’s a way to save hundreds and even thousands. The best way to save is to take your lunch and make more meals at home. The average U.S. family spends over $5,000 annually. The typical U.S. family spend $4,000 on meals prepared outside of the home. By just brown bagging it 2 times per week an average family will save over $1000 fairly easily.
Cooking at home is also a great first step toward going green. By making your own food, you’ll pay attention to the ingredients you use, how they were grown and how nutritious and healthy they are. You will then consider if your ingredients are organic, whether they are locally sourced.
