150 Expense TIPS Challenge #41 Food is one of a family’s greatest expenses but it is also one of the greatest waste expenses. The average Canadian family wastes about 30% of food each year. Think about what you could do with that much money each year?
Cooking up a big meal not once but even twice per week such as soups, roasts or chilli, will not only save you a lot of time and money each week but is a good way to cut food waste by using things like “limp” veggies too! I use a cooking app all the time called, “In the Kitchen” by the Food Network. It rates all its recipes as well as provides level of difficulty and time involved. Perfect for busy families.
