Save money on your grocery bills

— 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 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.
