Save money on your gro­cery bills

The Progress-Index - At Home - - News - STATEPOINT

With food costs on the rise, peo­ple every­where are look­ing for ways to re­duce gro­cery bills. Here are tips to help your fam­ily save:

• Re-eval­u­ate the way you eat: Grow­ing your own food can help you be­come more self-suf­fi­cient. On a quar­ter acre of land, an aver­age fam­ily can pro­duce 85 per­cent of the food they need and save money in the process. Check out “Max­i­miz­ing Your Mini Farm: Self-Suf­fi­ciency on 1/4 Acre,” by Brett L. Markham to take your gar­den to the next level. Visit www. markham­ for more in­for­ma­tion.

• Use coupons: Don’t just trash your su­per­mar­ket cir­cu­lar. There are tons of sav­ings to be had.

• Go veg­e­tar­ian: Meat prices are trend­ing up­ward, but veg­eta­bles can be grown at home.
